From Rishi Tea

The most tender green tealeaves and silvery down-covered buds are hand rolled into small pearls and naturally scented with the essence of fresh jasmine blossoms. The fragrant blossoms are mixed with our reserve Dragon Pearl (Long Xu) several times until it becomes infused with the sweet flavor and heady aroma of real jasmine. More than 20 pounds of fresh jasmine flowers are used to scent each pound of dried Dragon Pearl green tea.

Water: 180°F / Leaves: 1 teaspoon per 8 ounces / Infusion Time: 3–4 minutes / Ingredients: Organic green tea and Organic jasmine flowers. / Origin: Fujian, China.

I got this w/ the Theo chocolates I won in the Rishi FB contest a while ago so I decided to have this after lunch.

The aroma of the dry pearls is so strong I can taste it- but I’ve learned not to be scared off by that when it comes to jasmine teas- especially pearls.

Prepared as suggested: 1TB (66 pearls or 8.83g!- My tea/water ratio isn’t that strong for even my pu erh!)/8oz water- 6oz is my normal size for a cuppa, but measuring 2/3 of a TB is a pain- now I know to use 44 pearls for a 6oz cup.

The liquor is much darker than when I had it at the cafe… as in there is one lol! It’s a lovely and translucent golden color. The aroma is obviously stronger as well. A good amount of jasmine, but also a solid green tea aroma that prevents it from smelling like perfume.

The flavor is much like the liquor- quite jasminey, but not sickeningly so. The green tea is in the back ground, but serves as a great base for this tea. Steeping it this way almost makes the jasmine seem less pronounced because the green tea is more present. The iced version tasted how that looked as well- like iced jasmine water.

2nd infusion, 4 min. Just as good as the 1st.

I’m revisiting this one tonight as I was wanting something super floral and this definitely fits the bill. Smooth, floral and relaxing – this is a definite must-try for jasmine lovers!

I’m always amused (amazed?) at the patience of whoever takes the photos for Rishi Tea and lays out the pieces in a symmetrical little kaleidoscope. Wouldn’t that be terrible if you had a head cold and ah…ah…ah….

Not a bad jasmine pearl. Not perfume-y, not over-strong, but just nice, mellow, and very jasmine. I’m having quite the trying day with my work, and this is helping me get through it. All is better with a large pot of Jasmine Pearl tea.

And as much as I try not to shop at Whole Foods (while they’re good in so many other ways, they discriminate against larger employees in some of their benefits. And as one of the fluffier people, I tend not to like that), I will be going there to get some more of their loose-leaf Rishi teas.

I received these from Meghann M and they are fantastic! And best of all I noticed that they are sold at a nearby grocery store, so when I run out I can easily run and get a new tin… this makes me VERY happy! These are smooth with a nice strong jasmine taste, subperb!

It’s strange, the prepackaged version at my local high-end grocery store is FAR cheaper. I got three ounces for $12, while on Rishi’s website this tea is listed at $12 per ounce. This leads me to wonder whether the quality is the same! Maybe I’ll have to order an ounce online when I finish what I have.

Currently drinking this tea and comparing it with two other Jasmine pearls. All of these tea’s smell wonderful, one of my favourite tea aromas. I find it difficult to distinguish a really good Jasmine, and a lesser quality one. All three teas are very mellow to my taste-buds, but smooth and relaxing. The only thing that distinguishes Rishi’s Jasmine Pearl (I find) from the other two I’m trying is smoother taste after longer steeps and it almost takes on the slightest hint of a chocolate aroma and taste?! I may be crazy, but it is rather nice. The other two teas peaked after about a 4 minute steep, but Rishi’s Jasmine stayed smooth and picked up that chocolatey/hazel-nutty aroma and taste.

Anyways, I’ve learned it’s difficult to compare Jasmine tea. This is a very nice tea nonetheless.

Tea Love and Care

Ok, I’m drinking this tea again and I don’t feel like my last review did it justice. This time, without comparing multiple Jasmines, this tea is OUTstanding. A wonderful tea I would definitely buy again.

Yesterday was a tea-less day, and the day before I only had one cup first thing in the morning. So, today I am making up for that and I apologize if all the tea-logging is getting annoying. Anyways… I don’t know what it’s been with me and jasmine teas lately, but for whatever reason they seem to be stronger than I remember to the point that they are cloying. Today though was a warm, sunny day and jasmine tea beckoned to me. The first steep I sweetened with rock sugar and threw in the fridge to have it cold for later or even tomorrow morning even though I have been sipping at it. Right now I’m drinking the second steep, hot. It’s strong in scent but having already been steeped once it’s mellowed a little. That being said it does not mean that the jasmine is by any means mellow, because it’s not. I find that I’m actually preferring this cold at the moment and am anticipating warmer weather since this iced and Silver Needles iced is what I typically drink during summer.

Without a doubt, this is a JASMINE tea. This is very heavy on the jasmine, really fills the room with an amazing aroma. The flavor of the green tea is lost until the third steep, the jasmine shines more than anything. Nothing tastes artificial, this is a very high quality tea. It’s relaxing to watch the pearls open up in a glass vessel while brewing. Very fragrant, no bitterness. Great tea to relax with.

Yummmm. Beautiful jasmine scent, and wonderful jasmine flavor. The color is extremely light, i almost thought I had completely messed my steep up somehow, but then i smelled and tasted it. There is a hint of green tea and a wonderful strong jasmine flavor to it. It’s not an overpowering flavor, it is quite wonderful :)

This teas has is a very pleasant and delicate flavor. The scent of the jasmine is quite strong, but not at all overwhelming. Jasmine dominates the green tea, but in a pleasant way. It leaves the palate feeling hydrated and would make a excellent summer tea. I find it very soothing and relaxing after a tedious day.

A very standard jasmine pearl green tea, not an overpoweringly synthetic aroma, but floral and subtly, though very quick to bitter if over-steeped. The pearls will begin to unfurl after the first steep, and be fully unfurled by the second. Once unfurled one will see the relatively whole leaves and tea bud unfurl with no visible jasmine flowers. The fact that there are no jasmine flowers in this jasmine tea is a good thing, as that means the grower properly infused the scent into the tea by drying them together, rather than adding it to the tea later.
