This tea smells very heavily of jasmine. And by that I do not mean just a light aroma of jasmine flowers. I mean the heavy, sticky sweet smell of concentrated bunches of jasmine. Of course, not to judge a tea by its dry leaf aroma, I went ahead and steeped it according to the directions on the website (1 tsp per cup, 3 minutes, 80 degrees Celsius).

One thing I noticed as I was putting dry leaves into my teapot was the amount of extra broken pieces mixed in with the pearls.
The aroma of the freshly-steeped tea carries none of that same overwhelming jasmine scent. In fact, the smell of jasmine is almost more of an undertone now than anything else, which is something I found immensely interesting. The pale liquor has beautiful clarity, but I know, I know, you all really want to know how it tastes!

The jasmine is back! And with a passion. My first sip was a burst of floral flavour in my mouth…or rather just the flavour of jasmine. Thankfully, it is subdued enough to make this tea pleasant and worth drinking. The medium body of this tea comes mainly from the jasmine, I suspect, as imagining this tea without it would leave it quite light. Overall the flavour is very smooth, with just a light touch of a bite from the jasmine.

This is a good tea and a very reasonably-priced jasmine pearls.

2nd infusion:
The balance shifted slightly towards the green tea flavours with this infusion. Much more tannin as well. I probably slightly overinfused it this time (should have been 3:30 rather than 4 min). I preferred the first infusion, but this was still a very pleasant and drinkable cup, though not quite up to the standard of the magnificent Rare Tea Company Silver Needle Jasmine.
