This is indeed a delicate white…I would prefer a bit more flavor. Based on the observations of others, I’m sure there’s more in there somewhere so I’ll see if I can find it. I ignored it for a while after brewing, so I can’t claim this was an ideal-scenario tasting. Also, this has been in my possession for quite a while. In any event, it is very smooth and clean tasting. Aside from additional steepings of this batch, I should have another couple pots from my little sample and may adjust my rating.

I bumped my rating a couple notches as I think this brewed a bit better today. I recommend steeping less than the five minutes recommended by A&D. Generally I prefer my teas to be on the strong side, but I thought this one was smoother and had a better proportioned (I’m not entirely sure what I mean by this, but I’m standing by it) flavor after steeping for only four minutes.

When I think pearls, I think of jasmine dragon phoenix pearls (or some similarly-named variation that amounts to the same thing). I was a little on the surprised side when I opened up my sample pack of this tea to find these much, much larger pearls. Not that pearls can’t be this large, of course…I’m sure my wife would love to possess a necklace of pearls this size.

In any event, these pearls make tea, and I drink tea. I drank this tea, in fact. It was pretty good, definitely earthy and with mild astringency. Nice and bold, it seems like a relatively decent bet for breakfast, for me anyway.
