China Scented Green Jasmine Phoenix Pearls (No. 565):
Only the youngest leaf tips are scented eight to ten times with Jasmine blossoms and hand rolled into pellets. The silver down of the tender tips makes them shine like treasured pearls. When infused with hot water, the pellets slowly unfold, releasing a wonderful, delicate, slightly sweet and floral flavor. Set some time aside for yourself to enjoy this luxuriant tea.

Let’s talk about the pearls. What makes them phoenix? Reads the description …
Huh. Anyway, can’t really see the difference between this and normal pearls. The size is about the same as A. C. Perchs Jasmine pearls, which is a little above the size of normal pearls. The Perch are a bit greener though. (These pearls has a lot of white streaks). Also worth noting: the pearls are somewhat very uneven in size and rooling.
So much, in fact, that it gives me headache.
People in my class claims that it smell’s like bubblegum?
(?How? In which way??)
Sips It’s very jasminy. Not as sweet as Canton’s pearls and not as sour as Perchs.
Actually, this is how I would think a “normal” jasmine tea SHOULD taste like.
It has a sweet aftertaste that dissappears quickly.
…I actually want to try this iced with honey!
I bear an unfounded aversion to flowered teas that is completely unfair to both me and any innocent and upright flowered tea.
These pearls smell beautiful, taste nice, look nice. Everything is just too . . . pretty. And there can’t be anything wrong with that.
There. I feel like Natalie Wood.
