Easily the best Jasmine I have ever tasted-but only about the 3rd or 4th. The others seemed as if jasmine scent had been sprayed on them. The jasmine infusion in this is just right-pronounced, but not overpowering. Pearls used to fully unfurl after two infusions, but now they seem to unfurl after one-I have had the tea for 6 months now, so perhaps that might be a reason. The liquor is pale, color of light straw. I get 2-3 infusions out of the pearls. I enjoy this a lot, but it’s not an every day tea for me-maybe once a week or so. I always drink this straight.

Had this for awhile now since I only drink it occasionally. I have been mad for Jasmine flavored anything- Jasmine Mint toothpaste, Jasmine candles, Jasmine shower gel. So of course I needed some Jasmine tea. This is pricey but lovely! Its a very natural tasting Jasmine that perfectly
Compliments the tea. Love it, but didn’t love the price. Nice cold or freshly brewed around 170.

I bought a few packs of Wrigley’s Jasmine chewing gum in China. It had a minty background. Pretty nice!

Ooh my kind of flavor! I wish they would bring that to the US. Or one day when I visit China I will keep an eye out

I bought this for my jasmine-loving mother, decided to try it first to advise on brewing parameters and ended up drinking through the entire tin. Bought another and it’s going the same way. Oops.

It’s not my favorite jasmine pearl but it’s a nice one when I feel like jasmine but don’t want to put as much thought or effort into the preparation as a higher quality tea deserves. It’s better than the average grocery store jasmine tea, always in stock at my local natural/organic foods store, and cheaper than the jasmine pearl my local tea shop carries (the tea shop’s is tastier so the higher price is probably somewhat justified). The jasmine flavor and aroma is nice and strong. It’s not as smooth as the pearls from my local shop or Yunnan Sourcing but it’s perfectly drinkable brewed any style. Lately I’ve been doing grandpa style in a Fellow Carter travel mug. The splash guard thingie (that absolutely looks like a kitchen sink drain plug) that comes with the mug works really well for keeping any floaty leaves out of the way for grandpa style brewing. It keeps my tea hot for ages so it’s been my go-to vessel while sewing and embroidering.

Ever since I had Teavivre’s Premium Jasmine Dragon Pearls, no others will do, but I haven’t seen this one for sale anywhere around here.

The mug sounds Neato!

I looked up the company. Those really are cool. I like that they have a ceramic interior. Might be a good gift idea for people who actually leave the house, unlike myself.

The ceramic lining is what first caught my attention! I wish it went all the way to the top instead of ending below the edge, but I suppose there would have been problems with the ceramic coating wearing where the lid threads on.

Had this tea at a restaurant and then directly from the source. It has a subtle taste that sneaks up on you. To me it definitely is a top rated tea but lacks the stronger jasmine taste that seems to characterize the higher quality teas.

Great tea, nice jasmine flavor not to strong, really good iced. I get two good steepings out of it at 3 min at 175 and 4 for the second. Third steeping is a little thin even at higher temp or longer steep time.
