The aroma is divine and flavor very subtle. I can easily drink several cups of this. Perfect with a book.

Young green tea leaves are scented 6-8 times with summery blossoms of fresh jasmine, this tea is a phenomenon of fragrance and sweetness. Three leaves are hand rolled into pearls that slowly unfold the rich and smooth sweet floral flavor.

Use 1 teaspoon of tea per 8oz of water. Heat water to 175 degrees (79 degrees Celsius) and steep for 3 minutes. For stronger flavor, use more tea leaves.

I drank this alone and blended with a citrus herbal tea from Teavana. I was a bit disappointed to find that the pearl is not rolled around a jasmine bud, but instead the rolled leaves are scented with jasmine (whether it is natural or artificial flavor, I’m not sure.) There is a very pleasant and strong jasmine flavor to the tea, with no bitterness. It is smooth and relaxing, with a pale golden liquor. When blended with my citrus lavender tea the aroma was even more beautiful. Worth it for the aromatherapy even if the tea itself is not very complex. Holds true for a second infusion; I’m not sure about a third.
Flavors: Floral, Green, Jasmine, Perfume
These were ok, not my favorite. I think these are an older sample I had which makes sense why the flavor was a bit more bland and not the lovely jasmine flavor I was hoping for. Am going to try the last few pearls as a cold brew for later this afternoon. Hoping the flavors come thru a bit stronger.
My husband bought this tea for me for Valentine’s Day this year, along with the Strawberry Blush Rose. At some point, I intend to mix them together for a cup, but I wanted to try the two separately first.
This tea is very floral, just as expected. I’m not sure of the temperature when I steeped this, but I probably let it cool five minutes or so before adding the tea leaves. It’s a little astringent but not much. The leaves have only barely started to relax from their tight curls.
8 ounces water + 175 degrees + 3 minutes
Ready for my second cup of this! This cup still carries some of that floral scent, but unfortunately it’s also the tiniest bit bitter. The leaves have unrolled most of the way already, but I’ll probably try to steep this once more.
Flavors: Astringent, Bitter, Floral
Received a sample from a tea enthusiast friend, just enough for a cup. The scent of jasmine was absolutely lovely as soon as the water hit the pearls, and I found the taste to be light and soothing, with a silken feel on the tongue. I’m still a tea neophyte, so I have very little to compare this to, but I did enjoy it very much and will likely buy some. The only drawback is that I have a sensitive nose, and after half a cup I started to get a headache from the jasmine despite enjoying the smell. Going for a second steep anyway, because I’m a glutton for punishment.
This is a GREAT tea for blending with other teas. I never drink it on its own. It mixes well with Citrus Lavender Sage, Strawberry Blush Rose, Dragonfruit Devotion, Peach Tranquility, and many others. I have found that you can get multiple steepings out of a single teaspoon. It was the first floral tea that I really enjoyed. It adds a nice, subtle touch to the teas mentioned above.
As this is a heavy tea by weight, a little certainly goes a long way, so use caution when deciding your tea/water ratio. JDPP is excellent for any jasmine tea lover, as it delivers a soothing floral aroma and taste without a doubt.
