Dragons collect jewels
and this dragon collects tea!
From the moment I opened the package
I was entranced by the pearl shape of the tea and the wonderful jasmine scent.
A real treasure for the senses.
Pearls of tea with obvious silver tips
hand-rolled into the pearl shape.
Brewed for one minute.
The tea is a very pale green.
The jasmine taste and aroma is strong, but not overwhelming.
Brewed for two minutes
the color of the tea is darker
and the jasmine is lighter.
Brewed for three minutes
the green tea is taking over
with hints of jasmine.
A full-bodied yet simple tea.
Elegant and complex taste.
Watching the tea leaves unfurl is half of the fun!
I continued to brew tea from these leaves.
Increasing the brewing time and the heat of the water (careful!).
With each brewing, the jasmine was weaker and the green tea stronger,
but never bitter.
A good jasmine tea is hard to find
and Teavivre produces one of the best.
I think I'm in love!
I've had it with and without food.
I have never added anything to the tea.
It's perfect the way it is.

I'm joining several tea parties:
Wishing YOU well, much joy and a wonderful cup of tea!
