Ummmmm Jasmine Pearls!!! :-D These little beautys I received from Rabs (Thank you!) and they are a wonderful treat. No wait, they’re amazing! I noticed that the little pearls have some “fuzzy” white leaves wrapped in there, which I have never seen in a Jasmine Pearl before so because of that I knew right away this was going to be a great experience. I steeped my little treasures and watched them unfurl and then smelled they delicate (yet stong) aroma. My first sip was pure floral silk rolling around on my tongue, very smooth and nicely scented/flavored with jasmine! These pearls I believe have just beat Teavana’s Jasmine Pearls. I will have to test them side by side to see for sure, but I am almost positive!
Let me start off by saying I am not a fan of gunpowder green tea so I was expecting to not like this one, but I getting sick and my throat was hurting so since this was mint tea I decided I needed it! To my surprise this wasn’t bad, the mint complimented the taste of the gunpowder green tea… not bad, not bad and my throat was better the next day!
This rooibos is quite tasty and makes for a great dessert tea with some milk and honey! This tastes like amaretto with a slight chocolate taste to it. Almondy/cherryish/chocolatey all in one?! Yes please! Now, it’s rare that I will drink a rooibos tea that’s not blended with another tea, but this is good all on it’s own, but I would bet money that this would be amazing mixed with a smooth And bold black tea… Actually I will have to try that next time!
This is the first tea I have tried from the Georgia Tea Company and I must say it is VERY aromatic; I can smell the sweet fruits with no doubt! This is a naturally sweet tea without adding any sugar. The cherry and strawberry along with the mango and papaya stand out the most to me along with slight floral notes that linger in the background. I had half of this cup hot, which was good and then let it cool down to room temp. and tried it again and it’s even better and would probably be awesome as an iced tea!
