I need a weekend from my weekend.
My mother was rushed to the hospital on Saturday and it has been a roller coaster of a weekend.
But, she is now stable and the Doctors are figuring things out and things are looking better.
All weekend I was drinking Lapsang Souchong, it seemed to give me the jarring perk I needed to be alert.
But, today, I am emotionally drained and really wishing for a spa visit.
But, a Jasmine Pearl taste testing sounds like the next best thing.
This is the first tea in my tasting of all 4 of the Jasmine Pearl Teas I own, that I will be doing for you all today.
Dry, the pearls smell more of honeysuckle than jasmine, with a bit of a bread or starchy background note.
The tea smells of jasmine but there is also a sweetened milk smell too.
This tea is both lighter in taste and smell than some jasmines I have tasted.
Also, that slightly creamy/milk smell transfers into the taste.
Jasmine first hits the tongue but then that creaminess.
I do not get a strong green tea taste with this tea.
If you are not into highly perfumey jasmine teas, then this tea might be for you.
Overall, this is a lovely delicate tea and very nice price too, at $15.50 for 4 oz!

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.
