This tea exudes a lovely scent of Jasmine upon opening the package. While brewing it strengthens and never leaves (unintentional pun). I enjoyed this tea both hot and iced and surprise myself to be leaning toward preferring it iced. It seemed a bit smoother.
The description of the process for producing this tea fascinated me. Green tea leaves are wrapped in jasmine petals creating jasmine pearls. Pictured below, they are tiny black beads moving loosely around in the bag. In the photo at right, I have shown the brewed tea bag next to the package. When the flower petals release during steeping, they fill the bag totally.
The entire experience was a delight from start to finish. If you enjoy Jasmine Tea, I highly recommend trying Jasmine Pearls from Teapigs.
