This tea is causing me to rethink my preference for jasmine silver needles. Most jasmine pearl teas taste more or less alike to me and often have a sharpness in the green tea base that clashes with the florals. I was pleasantly surprised with this one. The jasmine is bright and fresh, not overpowering and with no bitterness. I love the full jasmine flowers which open up and float around in the gaiwan enhancing the visual aspect of brewing.
Just a scant 2g of leaf got me 6 excellent infusions. I used 175-180 F water in a 150ml glass gaiwan starting with 1m and then adding a minute to each steep.
