I tried this one the other day.
Dry leaf seems to be of Bi Luo Chun style with some jasmine flower petals and radiating with jasmine sweetness. I’m not a big fan of jasmine scented teas, especially if the scent is strong. I might be going for a stereotype, but jasmine seems to be more of a girly note, but I do enjoy a cup of light scented tea occasionally.

Since I only had a 5 gram sample i used a half of it and poured 200 ml of 80 Celsius water and let it steep for one minute. As description mentions, jasmine floats on top as tea leaves drop to the bottom. You got to give a credit to person who used imagination to name this tea.

What I got was clear light beige liquor. Upon fist sip I got the impression of jasmine pearls with incredible refreshing background and sweet finish. With each sip you get that silky sensation (or should i say – coating) on tongue and just a little hint of astringency there and on palate as well. It kind of gives it more of an egde on its character and it tends to dry and stiffen throat just a little bit. Jasmine aroma sits and radiates from throat quite a time.

This is where the jasmine got a bit too much for my taste and I tried to quiet it with second infusion that retained much of a flavor and brewed into fine light jade tone.
Not bad, even better than average jasmine pearls with some extra refreshing and sweet notes, but still not my usual daily cup of tea although I could have it occasionally as I said.

First cup. Steep 2 minutes.
Just as the name suggests, this tea does have a very aesthetic appeal as the leaves open and sink while the tiny flower petals rise to the surface. The light orange-colored liquor emits a simple but bright fragrance, while the taste holds notes of tangerine and melon, perhaps a little sweeter than other jasmine varieties. The flavor of the flower in this blend is a little too strong for my palette, as I prefer jasmine teas with a solid tendency toward the tea flavor. Lastly, this is a fragile tea and steeping for too long will produce an undesired bitterness from the jasmine flowers.
