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.

Tried this tea tonight. It’s very jasmine, to the point that I am second guessing whether the flavor is really natural. I’ve tasted natural jasmine tea made by blending green tea with jasmine flower. I didn’t find any flower in this tea but the jasmine taste was very strong. I can remember the flower blended green tea I had before was not nearly as strong. I am not an expert. But I still can’t believe this tea is organic and naturally scented.

This scented green tea is quite delicious and has an extremely fragrant jasmine aroma. Last time I made this with my boyfriend we actually stood there and inhaled a lot of the steam that was released…very relaxing!

I consider Rishi Tea’s jasmine pearls better than Teavana’s jasmine pearls, having tried them both a number of times. The tea can be steeped a number of times (6-7) and although the aroma of jasmine dissipates with each steep, the subtle flavor remains.

You’ll be surprised at the volume of tea leaves that’s left after the pearls unfurl. A few pearls go a long way!

Another from my trade with Cameron B

This smells SO AMAZING OMG OMG OMG. Everything in the package smelled like Jasmine. It was like I opened a perfume bottle instead of a tea pouch.
I couldn’t get over how amazing it smelled. This was my first time with pearls and they were so CUTE. I am a geek I know, but I just freaked out over how cute they were.

I brewed this up at 175 degrees and 2 minutes and it smelled amazing the whole time. I poured a softly greenish tea in my cup (had to use one of the glass mugs for this one so I could see its color) and sweetened it a little after a testing sip. The sip was tasty but I like my tea sweet.. so sugar went in, but just a teaspoon. I sipped again and my mouth was happy. Green tea, tasty and delicious… No astringency or bitters. WOW! First time I’ve ever had a green tea I didn’t at least hate in some direction.

Well the flavor was nice and I sipped it warm for a while. The only issue I had was when it cooled all the way, I couldn’t finish it. Why? Because my brain was saying “This is perfume. Why are you drinking perfume? Stop drinking perfume, you’re going to be ill. This is PERFUME DAMNIT NOT TEA!” and I couldn’t win the argument. Only a few tablespoons made it to that stage tho. When it cools it really does smell just like Jasmine perfume and to make this worse, I actually wear a Jasmine Perfume most days >_< So I’m quite familiar with that scent and my brain was really sure I was drinking perfume haha. :)

I kept expecting a bad taste to appear because I kept thinking of drinking perfume.

It was not tho. It was always sweet and delicious and the Jasmine flavor was so floral and so VIVID. I couldn’t believe how bright the flavor was.

I like this. I may well need to seek some of this out. Thank you so much for sending this Cameron! I really enjoyed it ^^

I’m glad you like it! The green tea is definitely very mild in that one (not sure what kind of tea it is…). But yes, it is quite smelly. :P I have quite a bit more of it if you need a refill soon. ;)

I just tried my first jasmine tea today, and look, a flavor we agree on! Who woulda thunk?

Thanks Cameron! I will taste it a few more ways and let ya know. I need to know where to get it again if I decide I could drink it more regularly :)

Mandy: Wooo! Well even opposites tend to share something in common. ;)

They have a website (www.rishi-tea.com) but I actually got mine at my local The Fresh Market store and it was quite a bit cheaper that way.

So this is my second jasmine pearl tea (the first being free sample from Yezi). I wish I could taste them both side-by-side, but without that option, I think I like this one a little better. The little pearls are tightly rolled and about a quarter inch in diameter. The smell of the dry tea is amazing – such a strong and sweet jasmine aroma. It smells like actual flowers, not like a perfume, which is a very good sign. The directions say to use a tablespoon (!) of tea per 8 ounces of water, so this is what I did. I think in the future I could definitely get away with using less per cup.

The brewed tea smells very jasminey, though definitely not as strongly as the dry (thank goodness). I can also catch a hint of a sweet, vegetal green tea behind the jasmine. I really enjoy the taste of this tea. The jasmine flavor is prominent and it’s definitely the star, but I can also taste the sweet and mellow green tea base. It came out a tiny bit bitter for me, but I think using less tea or maybe a tiny bit shorter steep would eliminate this. The aftertaste is very floral. I found this was delicious with just half a teaspoon of sugar – it seemed to round out the jasmine flavor.

I love this tea but don’t buy it very often because of the cost.

This is my favorite tea of all teas! Gentle but robust. Smooth and mellow. This is the tea I recommend to all non-Green tea drinkers as the inherent sweetness makes it a delight to drink! Plus, I have the added benefit of supporting a local company. :)

A very pleasant tea for a summer evening. The flavor is delicate and the aroma reminds me of moonlit nights in a garden. I usually let it steep for up to five minutes.

I like it. It’s much better than bagged jasmine green tea- well obviously ;) but I drink this pretty regularly it’s one of my daily teas. It’s light and refreshing with a bit of honey.. Ahhh yummy __
