2 reviews for Jasmine Downy Pearls
Aside from the fantastic flavor of leaf and flower, the tea is wonderfully textural, filling the mouth and nose with full feeling and rich scent and flavor. The finish is very dry but doesn't seem especially astringent or puckery. As the tea cools a bit, a high, fresh and lightly vegetal taste is discernible - peeking out intriguingly from the interesting "smoky" floral brew.
The dark, cidery gold liquor has a fantastic, slightly "smoky" flavor that merges perfectly with a sultry jasmine for a flavor impression that makes you sit and pay close attention to what you are tasting. I say "smoky" but I mean that not in the sense of something like a Lapsang Souchong at all. In fact, it's more smoky in the sense that you are tasting a bit of the processing of the leaf itself. The "smokiness" is more like a step up from a roasted flavor - and perhaps is somewhat the taste result of an alchemy between leaf and flower. Whatever it is that produces it, it's incredibly pleasing!

Fantastic tea. Has to be the best quality and freshest we have tried. More expensive than others, but it is definitely worth it.
