This was my first online order from Golden Teahouse (a Canadian company) and these jasmine pearls are not their premium jasmine pearls. What makes me a little wary is that in their own description of the tea, they say “scented five to seven times with fresh, aromatic flowers (mostly jasmine)”, “mostly” being an indication that there may be magnolia flowers involved in addition to jasmine. Whether that is really so or not, I cannot say as I did not see any purple traces of magnolia among the pearls. Nonetheless I found the tea quite all right (jasmine teas are my favourite). This tea was not perfect as for me it seems that the jasmine (or possibly magnolia?) dominates a bit in the smell, making the smell more sweet than fresh. But the tea tastes good (rather mild, somewhat sweetish) and I used up the first 50 gram bag I had within a little more than a month quite smoothly without any bad emotions. Not sure if I will buy it again but maybe. Overall, a decent jasmine tea but not special.
