I have a friend that always brings me tea souvenirs from her vacations. Most of the time it is Jasmine. I’m not sure is this is because it is her favorite or if I once made a comment while we were eating at our local Asian lunch haunt. Anyway, when I saw yet another Jasmine, I secretly wished for a little change. Luckily I got it. I’m one lucky steepster!
Don’t try to rush this tea experience. It is fun from the start. The pearls are beautiful as they unfurl so be sure to brew using a clear glass container. Next the sweet smell of flowers hit you but the flavor is mellow. It all works together for a wonderful experience without overwhelming the senses. Quite enjoyable.
