Canton Tea Co. Jasmine Pearls

My favorite type of tea (thus far) is white tea, more specifically, silver needle, so I was crazy excited to try this one. The only thing that made me hesitate was the fact that it was jasmine flavored. I like the smell of Jasmine but I don’t like teas that taste like perfume. other Jasmine teas made me feel like I was back in the elevator with that lady who was wearing cheap jasmine perfume (ended up having the taste from it in my mouth all day).

So I sat down and brewed this tea, anticipating that funky taste. As soon as I opened the package, I could tell that this Jasmine was different. The pearls are really pretty and the tea smells like a dream. Steeped it for five minutes, though they recommend only a few, watched the pearls come to life and unravel in my cup. The color was really light as you’d expect from a silver needle. The smell was very calming, soothing and not even slightly artificial. Yes, I was pleasantly surprised – made me feel like I was in a spa. The silver needle is high grade and you can tell that it was harvested at just the right time. The Jasmine scent was infused naturally which explains why I was spared the aftertaste. Steeped it three times and it did really well. The scent was milder by the third brew but the silver needle carried it through perfectly.

One Response to “Tea Review: Canton Tea Company Jasmine Pearls”

  • Thanks for writing the post Jamie. Like you I never look forward to perfume tasting teas. Ive had both Canton’s and Metropolitan’s Jasmine Pearls in the past and I would hands down give Canton’s another try. Metropolitans pearls to me where “perfumey”.

    I had a question, being that I am a novice when it comes to white tea, I was wondering if you could give me any suggestions.

    I have had Silver Needle from Aroma. I found it to be a very light flavor and refreshing, and enjoyed it better than I thought I would. I have recently been pushing this tea for people to have never really enjoyed tea, for there first tea.
