(Gongfu) Certainly not my first jasmine pearl, but this wakes up a lot faster than the others I’ve had. The scent of the dry pearls is extremely sweet like sugar, and really enticing. The first few steeps are strongly floral without tasting like bad perfume like cheap jasmine pearls. The middle steeps were…oddly banana tasting, I can’t say I have experienced that before in a jasmine pearl and gave the experience more depth than other pearls I’ve gongfu’d. This tea only gets knocked down because there was more astringency than I like in my jasmine teas which I prefer to not have a bite to them.

Flavors: banana, Floral, Green, Jasmine

Thanks, you convinced me to buy but their all out of stock, do you have a recommendation for a fruity jasmine pearl similar to this?
