Sipped on these white tea “pearls” a few days ago while playing Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee! I skipped it when it first came out (the game, not the tea) so I decided that I’d finally give it a fair shake – and I’m enjoying it a lot!
In regard to the tea, to call this a pearl styled tea is definitely a bit of a misnomer; they’re definitely much more like a loosely rolled dragonball. I only used one for the session (in my 70ml gaiwan). This is a good tea to brew while I play though; the notes of straw and cream are a bit more flat/one dimensional but the tea handles my non-attentive & distracted brewing style very well. Long steep times aren’t a problem, and while the flavour isn’t exciting it’s not unpleasant either.
