This was one of the free samples included in my Han Xiang Ecological Tea order on AliExpress. I’m not the hugest fan of floral teas, but jasmine can be an exception to that rule. These pearls look and smell like others I’ve had – the scent is strongly sweet and jasminey. I set the timer for 3 minutes but I didn’t hear it go off because the TV was too loud… So I’m not sure how long it steeped. It came out lovely though, so I guess it’s hard to oversteep this tea.
Now, it may have just been a while since I’ve had a jasmine tea, but I’m enjoying this one immensely! The jasmine is pronounced but still very lovely and sweet. There seems to be a fruity note that’s similar to apricot, not sure I’ve experienced that in a jasmine pearl before. I can only taste the green tea slightly, it’s quite mild and sweet and melds nicely with the jasmine. Overall, very tasty and appreciated! :)
