This is my first ever blooming tea! I generally stay away from jasmine if possible (except on rare occasions) so this is likely the cause of this. This was another sale tea and I’d never, ever pay the $18 for this one. I have no idea where they get off thinking it should be that costly for these blooming teas. The balls themselves smell just like pineapple! They even have that acidic bite that I love so much.
Steeping this was pretty fun, I think that it didn’t fully unfurl during the 1st steep. The liquor is very, very light, but smells nice enough. A lot of the white tea smell is coming through. mmm this is pretty nice. Mellow, fruity, with white tea notes that remind me of the strawberry paradisio one from Teavana. Overall, it is a good tea. Is it an $18 tea? No chance.

2nd and 3rd steeps were very good too! My husband liked it so much he stole a glass of it for himself. He was pretty sad when I told him we won’t be getting more anytime soon.

They think this because they are Teavana and they think it’s perfectly acceptable to charge an arm and a leg for teas. The sad thing is that most of their teas are mediocre at best.

Yeah, I do have to agree. I think that they must have been having a hard time selling these lately because all 3 types went on sale. It’s not even that it is a bad tea or sub-par in anyway, just not the best thing ever.
