From Sanctuary T

These hand rolled delicacies are lightly scented with jasmine tea. The unfurling leaves are mesmerizing and the aroma intoxicating. We recommend enjoying this tea in a glass teapot for maximum relaxation.

Sipdown no. 8 of 2016 (no. 229 total). A sample. The second of the green tea sampler from Sanctuary T.

I was delighted to find jasmine pearls among the samples as they are such a favorite of mine. These smell very jasminey in the packet and steep to a very pale, clear yellow that is almost colorless. The jasmine is the primary note in the aroma as one might expect, and the same is true with regard to the flavor. The tea is quite mild in its jasmine-ness as well as in its tea-ness. Not bitter, or otherwise having any off notes. Just not very present, and the jasmine is rather light. It’s actually a good combination to have the jasmine light where the tea is also light. Otherwise you get a pasted on jasmine flavor, which this doesn’t have.

It’s a good jasmine pearls, but I prefer more depth to the underlying tea.

I haven’t really tried any of these because green tea often makes me feel sick, but I’ve been eyeing various jasmine pearls for a while now. Can you recommend any that don’t use natural or artificial flavoring and that actually have jasmine flowers you can see?

I’ve had a number of jasmine pearls but I can’t vouch for whether they use any sort of flavoring or not. I am fairly sure from the description on their site that the Tavalon green jasmine (not pearls) which I liked a lot doesn’t use flavoring. Also, I recently drank an older sample of the Samovar jasmine pearls which I thought was terrific. As far as I can tell from the description on their site, they don’t use anything but flowers to scent the tea. Interestingly, though, the current site says they use a mix of green and white teas in their pearls, and the Steepster description says it’s classified as a green tea but actually uses a variety of white tea in the pearls. Which makes me wonder whether that’s why I found that one outstanding among the ones I’ve had.

Very interesting… Hm… I’ll check these out. I think they’d include it in the ingredients list if there were any flavorings, especially since this is something Western markets often demand. I need to look around. That one sounds good though.
