drank Jasmine Pearl by Samovar
8 tasting notes

After having some bad experiences with Jasmine tea I decided to give it another shot by trying Samovar’s Jasmine Pearl. I thought the reason I disliked Jasmine tea was because I had yet to try well-made, fresh buds but in all honesty it wasn’t much better than other Jasmines I’ve tried. I think the problem is that the Jasmine flavour is so overwhelming it masks the subtleties of the underlying leaf. So while it was light and soft I still felt overwhelmed by a flowery, perfumey, sweetness that tasted slightly cheap. This may be subjective, but at least I realized that Jasmine tea isn’t really my thing.
