Backlog:

A really wonderful Jasmine pearl, one of the best Jasmine Pearl teas that I’ve tried. Very aromatic, but without tasting perfume-y. Delicious, exotic, and soothing.

No sharpness from the tea or the jasmine, just a soft, luxurious flavor. Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/09/12/jasmine-pearls-mo-li-hua-green-tea-from-yezi-tea/

Backlog & Sipdown (96)! I had this the other evening, which in retrospect was not such a good idea because I stayed up a few more hours than I had intended, oops! I’m not such a huge fan of jasmine teas in general because they tend to be too perfume-y to me. This one definitely smelled very perfume-y while it was steeping. However, when I actually tasted the tea, the jasmine flavor was not as perfume-y as I had expected it to be. Still a little much for me, but nice enough that I could finish the cup and even resteep it once. Plus, there was no astringency, which is also something else that puts me off of a lot of other jasmine teas. I won’t be repurchasing only because I don’t really like jasmine, but it provided some very lovely cups of tea while I had it!

Quite easily the best jasmine tea I’ve had! There is no astringency whatsoever and the jasmine is so floral and smooth. This is one of three samples I requested from Yezi. I didn’t know what to expect but I’m quite pleased. The packaging is very cute yet simplistic, and I enjoyed the little hand written note and happy face from the owner. :) Thank you!

I am brand new to loose leaf tea and this was my first cup. I’m sure part of the joy came from the novelty of brewing without a bag, but I really enjoyed this tea. I love the smell of jasmine and this tea was sweet with it, even after several steepings. I spent a lot of time with my nose over my tea cup. The taste was sweet and smooth, and I look forward to trying it again after I’ve had a bit more experience.

I’m pretty easy to satisfy as far as jasmine green teas go, so choosing this as a sample from Yezi felt like a safe bet, and as it turns out I was correct.

Opening the packet, there’s a really nice jasmine aroma, just purely floral and fairly strong. Upon brewing, the same aroma persists — they’re not playing around with the jasmine here!

The actual liquor has a surprisingly light taste considering the strength of the scent — it’s not bad, especially for a tea that’s advertised as being good for multiple steeps, just more subtle than I expected. It stands on its own without sweetener, which I don’t always find true of floral teas, probably because the green tea isn’t the slightest bit bitter. Just a nice soft, smooth jasmine.

I don’t feel like this is dramatically different from other jasmine greens, but it’s an excellent version and one of my favorites.

This is the second tea that I got as a free sample from Yezi Tea (yay free samples!). The smell of the dry leaf is amazing, floral and sweet. Let me just say, I am rather confused as to what exactly is meant when the word “teaspoon” is used in tea jargon. Does it mean a teaspoon measuring spoon or a teaspoon as in a flatware teaspoon…? If anyone could help me out on this with a comment, I would appreciate it. So when I brewed this tea, I basically said “screw it” and used the whole five gram sample. Since this is a fairly dense tea, I would say it would have been a slightly heaping flatware teaspoon.

That being said, I thought the strength of the brew was perfect. The jasmine aroma and flavor is quite strong, but I could still taste the delicate green tea flavor underneath. I’m not sure what type of green tea it is or whether jasmine pearls count as their own type. Either way, I really enjoyed its flavor – slightly sweet and light with no bitterness and very little astringency. I took it with a very small amount of sugar.

Thanks, Yezi Tea, for the free loot!

I think it means measuring spoon, but it is sometimes hard to measure fluffier teas this way which is why some people weigh the amounts to be more accurate. I’m usually not that precise when measuring though. The heaping teaspoon/5 gram sample sounds like you used the perfect amount, especially since it tasted good which is what is most important. :-)

I’ve seen that a lot of tea retailers sell a tea measuring spoon that’s supposed to be the correct amount for a cup. I should probably grab one of those just to have a roundabout idea of how much I’m supposed to use. :P

Thanks for your response!

Nicole

I always assume a measuring teaspoon as well. And 5 grams is about a teaspoon. :) Like caile, I don’t weigh either. All that matters is that you like the outcome. But yeah, for the first couple times with a particular tea, it’s generally a good idea to try to measure close to the vendor recommendation, IMO. Gives you a good idea of where you might need to go with your personal preference for the tea for the next cup. :)

I got scale because some leaves are just impossible to measure
