Thank you to Nature’s Tea Leaf for the generous sample.
Like other reviewers, I just assumed this had jasmine in it, but when I looked closer I saw that it didn’t. Very neat.
Tea pearls are always so much fun to watch and these were no exception. Even for the 1 minute steeping I did, they unfurled ever so slightly and so beautifully. Very entertaining.
The initial taste was very light. The package said 1 teaspoon, which I did, but I looked online and it says 2 teaspoons, which makes more sense. So, for my second infusion I brewed 4 oz instead of 8.
The tea has a nice smooth taste and it’s not too vegetal like some other greens. Maybe I’m crazy but I do detect hints of jasmine. This tea does get some astrigency if steeped for too long.
Overall a smooth green tea, especially for those that are turned off by more grassy greens.
