Tea of the Week – Fujian Jasmine Pearl
Name: Fujian Jasmine Pearl
Bought At: Adagio.com
Price: $29 for maestro sampler set (4 teas)
First Impressions: “Pearl” shaped leaves, floral smell
Another first for me, I’ve never had a Jasmine tea before. The first thing that was surprising to me was just how strong the jasmine scent is, both from the leaves and the tea when made. It smelled like I had just picked a bunch of fresh flowers! The tea has a unique, light, flowery flavor. It was very light, similar to last weeks Formosa Pochong, but definitely has a sweeter aftertaste. While I can’t say I’ve ever eater a flower, I definitely think this is what it would taste like. The smell was actually a little overpowering to me, but I would imagine this would be great for a Jasmine tea lover.
