This is a sample I received in my latest Harney and Sons order.
I am going take a second to thank all the tea companies for giving out samples.
I just think it is awesome.
It seems like 10-15 years ago when my Father first got into teas, it was not a common thing, so I am always pleasantly surprised when I do get some in a box.
Okay!
On to Dragon Pearl Jasmine.
Which is my VERY first introduction to a Dragon Pearl Jasmine.
I must say when I opened the box, and saw this sample, I was so excited!
I have been wanting to try it since I came onto Steepster.
It seems to be a tea that either you really like it or you don’t.
Well, from the moment I opened the little sachet packet, it was like I bumped into a dear old friend.
I wore Jasmine perfume when I was younger and used a LUSH soap that smelled just like this tea.
I felt like I was young again!
Which is quite a feat since yesterday was my birthday and I am suffering from slight heat stroke today (playing too much in the sun on the water) and general feelings of ancient-ness creeping up on me.
If the smell was not enough to win you on this tea, the taste will.
Imagine a Jasmine flower with honey dripping off it…Yeah, thats how it tastes.
So, Harney and Sons, Thank you for the sample.
So, Steepster Friends, Thank you for introducing me to a tea that I had not even heard of before.
And thank you,Dragon Pearl Jasmine Tea, for making me feel young again…if not for a few minutes:)
P.S.
I used SimplyJen’s recommendations for brewing this tea, since my little packet did not have any on it.
I think it was spot on Jen!

Thank you, Ladies!
I wanted to add that this was a Sachet sample, but I have got 2 steepings out of it.I am trying a third as I type this…I pretty sure I am pushing it, but I just do not want to let it go!
I want to keep drinking it…..

Azzrian

:) Hope the third steep worked!

Hesper June

It really didn’t :(
It is only really good for two steepings.
But, oh how lovely those two steepings were…

Azzrian

:) Glad it was THAT good!

The first jasmine tea I had was terrible, then I tried Teavivre’s Jasmine Dragon Pealrs and fell in love. Two people who have had it with me made me order them some RIGHT AWAY! I want to try the Harney offering, too. I hear raves about it.

Hesper June

I can certainly understand their RIGHT AWAY response.
I had only had a few sips, and I was looking this tea up on their website and pondering their express shipping.
Which, I refrained from since the tea itself is not cheap (which is something I am realizing with all Dragon Pearl Jasmines,)
Apparently, this is a tea that I must not drink by the gallons…at least until I become a millionaire, that is.

SimplyJenW

Yay! So glad my ramblings are of use to someone!
Happy Belated Birthday!

Revel in your ancientness ;) (Scary when you start to discover you’re supposed to be the older, wiser one!)

Profile

Bio

A Farmer’s Wife who drinks her tea to forget the din of the world.
Love all tea, from black to herbal concoctions.
Usually start my day with black tea and then move on to Oolong or Green in the afternoon, then finish the day with a tisane.
Loose Leaf teas are my preference, I say “Free the Leaves!” :)
When I am not drinking tea, I enjoy knitting, baking, reading, playing with one of our rescue animals or working along side my husband on our farm.

My rating system is rather relaxed:
50’s or under- Um, is this tea or did I get this from the slop bucket?
60’s- Not really my thing, certainly will not be purchasing again.
70’s- I will give this tea a few more tries to see if it grows on me , right now it is okay but not thrilling me.
80’s- Like this tea a lot. It might be a tea that I have to be in a certain mood for and therefore not a daily drinker, but try to have on hand for those “moods”
90’s and higher- ADORE! Will never be without!

I most always drink my tea plain.
No sweeteners or milk/cream.
