I am revisiting this again tonight. I am brewing this in the gaiwan and with short infusions. I am using a LOT of leaf vs. water. The lilac aromas are coming up very intensely. It is difficult to believe this is not scented in some way! I do think this tea is quite a beauty. I am also getting a bit of the vanilla flavor coming up here. I was scolded a bit the last time I reviewed this for eating it with a mango and I can see why. Tea is a very personal thing and we all enjoy different flavors. Mostly I like darker/roastier oolongs and I don’t really think this is a personal favorite, very high on the flowers, but I’m happy for those of you that are loving it. :-D

Teavivre made a jasmine pearl that I thought was ok but I would still never buy it

I like the scent and flavor, and also, not all Jasmine teas are heavily scented. Some are more mild, you just have to find the right one…or not. :))

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
