The package said to add 4 to 6 balls for a cup! That seemed too small of an amount to me so I added 8 or 9. It brewed up pretty mild. This is my very first Jasmine Pearls ever. I’ve had lots of Jasmine Green but never Jasmine Pearls. I liked the Jasmine scent and flavour. It wasn’t too overpowering (I used to LOVE overpowering Jasmine teas) and definitely not too mild (can’t stand those). Somewhere in between. It wasn’t an exceptional tea but it was good. I’m looking forward to trying the Jasmine Pearls from Tealux next to see if there really is a difference.
