I have Dragon Pearls delivered from China and I will need to make some of that tea tonight to compare to this one. I also usually drink jasmine green tea when going for dim sum. Most of the time the dim sum tea is burnt, leaving a bitter taste. It is unfortunate that this is what I thought of tea my whole life…bitter and floral.
EDIT: I’ve tried the Dragon Pearls from China and it isn’t the same. It was too light that it tasted of only water, could not pick up on any of the jasmine. I guess DAVIDsTEA knows their stuff!
First off, I really love jasmine. It’s the flavour that I generally enjoy about green tea. The tea in the bag gives off a nice sweet floral scent and when steeped, it becomes more toned down, more delicate. First few sips were delightful. It’s not the same bitter dim sum tea that I am used to. You can definitely taste the jasmine and its delicious :)
