I need a weekend from my weekend.
My mother was rushed to the hospital on Saturday and it has been a roller coaster of a weekend.
But, she is now stable and the Doctors are figuring things out and things are looking better.
All weekend I was drinking Lapsang Souchong, it seemed to give me the jarring perk I needed to be alert.
But, today, I am emotionally drained and really wishing for a spa visit.
But, a Jasmine Pearl taste testing sounds like the next best thing.
This is the first tea in my tasting of all 4 of the Jasmine Pearl Teas I own, that I will be doing for you all today.
Dry, the pearls smell more of honeysuckle than jasmine, with a bit of a bread or starchy background note.
The tea smells of jasmine but there is also a sweetened milk smell too.
This tea is both lighter in taste and smell than some jasmines I have tasted.
Also, that slightly creamy/milk smell transfers into the taste.
Jasmine first hits the tongue but then that creaminess.
I do not get a strong green tea taste with this tea.
If you are not into highly perfumey jasmine teas, then this tea might be for you.
Overall, this is a lovely delicate tea and very nice price too, at $15.50 for 4 oz!
This delectable organic tea is made from the long and graceful leaves of the tea plant with slender silver buds which are hand rolled into tight pearls. After completion, these beauties are “infused” with fresh Jasmine blossoms producing a delicately perfumed tea with the typical well-roundedness of the dominant green tea leaves. A richly aromatic cup of tea that is pure bliss to the olfactory senses as well as the palate.
