To help offset the expense I sometimes mix it with other flavors. I've tried a lot of combinations, but the best I've found is this with a nice, hearty black tea. Since it's organic I try to stick with other natural blends and I found this to be the best choice: All Natural Organic Instant Black Tea Powder 8 oz. - Buy One Get One Free!. Most people wouldn't think to mix the two, but they compliment each other so well and help stretch your tea and your dollars. You can still taste the jasmine when you add the black tea mix. None of the flavor it lost, it simply blends which is great for the adventurous tasters!
Now, as to the tea itself. This is EXTREMELY fine jasmine tea. Rishi's offering uses "dragon pearls" of excellent quality--Chinese green tea leaves that are hand-rolled into little...well, pearls. The pearls are then scented, over the course of several days, with fresh jasmine blossoms--20 lbs. of fresh jasmine blossoms are used to scent each pound of tea. This is excellent, absolutely delicious tea that, excepting the word "jasmine," has virtually nothing to do with cheaper grades of tea that are scented chemically with perfumes. It scents the whole room as it brews. :)
Bearing in mind that there are no bargains to be found for top-grade tea--it's never cheap--Amazon has the best price I've yet found for Rishi Jasmine Pearls, especially if your order qualifies for free shipping. It can and should be infused three times, which might take some of the sting out of purchasing, the health benefits of green tea providing the final push.
Rishi Dragon Pearls are now a part of my parents' daily routine. In addition, I made a gift of a can to a friend's mom--that can went all the way to Russia and was, predictably, received with delight and appreciation. A cousin in California, on my recommendation, went a bit hog-wild and bought four cans from Amazon--she's now a fan, too. I doubt there are any better green jasmine pearls to be found.Read more ›
The instructions say that you can resteep a few times, but I find that they lose the fragrance after the first time around, so I usually toss the leaves and get a fresh cup going. Since they are rolled up into little balls, it's fairly easy to measure out the amount of tea you need. I typically put one little pellet for each ounce of water I'll be using, and the tea turns out great. It's also eerily therapeutic and calming to watch the little pearls/pellets "blossom" in your cup (so get a nice, see-through cup or steeping pot) -- in a manly way, of course.
It seems fairly expensive, but the package lasts for a while. I haven't counted how many cups I get out of a container, but I do drink a lot of tea, and I haven't once thought,"Man, I went through this way too fast..."
