Late night tea session! I wanted something warm before I went to bed, but somehow none of the decaf teas I have appealed to me, so here I am with this (you can say my go to tea-ish)

The dry tea is thin in shape and most have a little curve, so I’m guessing thats where the name came from (Although I have to say translation is really an issue here as the Chinese says sparrow’s tongue, not beak). The dry tea also smelled very fragrant, however not intensely so.
The brew is a light yellow color, and the fragrance is more prominent. The taste is much in line with this observation: a whisper of jasmine that doesn’t overwhelm. Clean, refreshing cup of tea.

Can’t help but compare this to Red Blossom’s Dragon Pearl Supreme, which held stronger scents in both dry and wet tea form. However, Dragon Pearls are also a heck lot more expensive than Sparrow’s Beak, so for anyone that’s seeking a cheap (yet not so cheap) alternative to the Pearls, this is the tea you want. Personally, I feel that I would rather have the pearls when I’m fully awake and able to appreciate all it’s beauty, but during other times when I’m too busy, tired or just distracted (or even when I’m alert but just not feeling it), this is my go to jasmine. Sure, it isn’t as wow worthy, but it will never disappoint.

One of the few teas that doesn’t suffer from oversteeping IMO (since I accidentally left this a tad longer than I was supposed to) A great tea for anytime.

Beautiful floral bouquet in the store canister and bag. In cup, only a whisper of jasmine. Not overwhelming, clean taste, slightly sweet, very refreshing. Good for multiple steepings.

Liked it, but after 2 weeks in an airtight light-tight tin, if I used more than a teaspoon per cup, it would taste soapy.
