Jasmine Pearls from My Tea Guy . . . .

  I love jasmine green teas. There is something soothinig, calming, and safe about these teas.  The flavors are typically on spot and they jst allow me to sink into my favorite spot on the couch and relax. With my how crazy my work days have been, tea hasn’t been on the forefront of my mind lately. Shame on me because I have been neglecting a lot of amazing teas. . like this one. . . The other day I was determined to have myself a cup of tea before my inbox became crazy.  My hand instantly grabbed the sample Read More

Jasmine Dragon Pearls from Enjoying Tea

In the early days of my loose leaf tea drinking, I first encountered jasmine green tea pearls.  I was working evening shifts at the college library and we had a small, varied supply of tea, mainly our favorite tea bags.  But one night, one of my coworkers had brought in loose leaf teas they were looking to share.  I was fascinated by these little green pellets in one of the tea canisters and dropped a few in mug even though we didn’t have tea bags or filters.  I watched the balls of tea unfurl and fill my mug with flavor.

Aphrodite

Aphrodite from Fox Tea Club. . .

I am a green tea kinda gal.  Green teas just give me all the feels.  So when Fox Tea Club’s samples arrived and I saw Aphrodite-a green and white tea blend- in this adorable and let me repeat ADORABLE canister with a wax seal- I immediately prepped up my tea pot.   (Sorry for the dull picture.  It was a cloudy day.) First whiff of the tea yielded a fresh floral sweet aroma.  My husband said the tea smelled like purple. Brewed with water prepped at 190F and allowed to steep for three minutes and cooled for an additional three minutes, Read More

White Jasmine from The Cozy Leaf. . . .

I received this as a sample simply labeled “White Jasmine.” I assumed it was a white tea scented with jasmine, but I looked it up on the company website. Good thing, too, because it is actually a blend of jasmine green tea, white tea, heather flowers, and rose petals – all organic, so that’s nice! While it carries a little of the scent of the flowers, it really does not taste anything like jasmine tea to me, white or green! Mostly I just taste green tea. It isn’t a bad tea and it’s great that it is a fully organic Read More

Dragon Pearl Jasmine from Teavivre

Jasmine – Take Me Away! I swear this stuff is better than any bubble bath for soothing frayed nerves! My jasmine vines are in bloom which set me to hankering for some delicious jasmine tea. The first jasmine tea I ever tasted was a painful experience. I will try to distance myself emotionally enough to recount it for you. It was EXACTLY like drinking perfume. Or soap. Or something nasty that was supposed to taste like a flower but tasted like chemicals instead. It was synthetically flavored with jasmine, and it showed. Then along came Teavivre and they sent me Read More
