I like the name of this tea. It’s accurate, as well as being a different way of describing a flowering type tea. It’s always fun to watch those unfurl as they steep. This one is just the tea, without any added pretty ‘flower’ colours. It’s a bit like a giant jasmine dragon pearl.

As far as taste goes, it’s not bad. Not the best jasmine tea I’ve had, but certainly not the worst, either. I can see I’ll be coming back to play with more of these balls in the future.

Does the jasmine in this one tend to be on the heavier side, or is it light?

Luthien

Steeping for six and half minutes, the jasmine is reasonably strong but not overpowering. The dry balls barely smell of jasmine at all, so I think that a shorter steeping time would produce quite a delicate jasmine tea.
