"Tried 3 jasmines of higher prices. This was the favorite! Lovely floral smell as if I were in a greenhouse with a blooming jasmine. The flavor, however, was not an overwhelming taste of jasmine. Slightly sweet and smooth finish." A tea drinker

"I love watching the pearls unfurl as they steep. They remind me of little sea creatures reaching their legs out of their shells. This is a great tea to enjoy in a teacup or bowl with an interesting pattern or texture on the inside because the liquor is so pale. The aroma is delicately floral and not overly "perfumey". The taste is sweet jasmine, smooth and subtle."
