There was a time early in my tea drinking that I would have never, under any circumstances, thought about trying this tea. Why? Because I was pretty sure I hated super floral tasting teas. Lately, however, I’ve noticed that my tastes have changed so I thought, maybe I WILL like this tea…..
The little pearls are so cute and fuzzy, but they have a very, very strong scent. Perhaps it is because I’ve been avoiding several floral teas, but this doesn’t smell like I thought jasmine smelled like….but I’m pretty sure the company used jasmine so I’m obviously off. The brewed tea is light gold in color and still has a really strong aroma that reminds me of soap or lotion or something…eek!
Thank tea heaven! The taste is not that of a soap or a lotion! It is actually a nice green tea with a layer of floral jasmine with hardly any aftertaste. I’m sure my rating with change as I become accustomed to this floral tea, but I am really glad I got up the nerve to try something this far outside of my comfort zone.
Second infusion is a tad sweeter, but other than that the taste is the same as the first infusion. This tea could probably keep going for awhile, but I have so many other teas I want to try….
