These pearls are basically the crème de la crème of jasmine tea, particularly of the leaves available in the UK market. These pearl are super fragrant, without being sickening and the flavour is similar; a juxtaposition of punchy, delicate floral. Some jasmine tea can leave a very dry mouth feel and slight astringency, but these pearls only have the slightest dryness in the finish, making for a more enduring cuppa. I managed to steep these 3 times before they had fully unfurled and started to really lose their flavour!
Final Thoughts: These pearls are truly superior! I’m not sure how anyone could turn back after tasting these, other than the price tag, but can you really put a price on good tea?
