Welcome back! Today is our fifth day of the 8 Crazy Days of tea–with me, the self proclaimed tea lady. We continue with one of DAVIDsTEA’s Black tea’s: Organic Jasmine Black Pearls. I’m glad you have tuned into episode 62 of Erin’s tea, please tell your friends about Erin’s Tea so I can work hard to bring you many more episodes!


  • It’s a Chinese Black tea with Jasmine blossoms in it… super rare to have this combination.
  • It’s special because it’s hand rolled, and they use black tea from China.
  • This tea is a little more delicate than other black teas, so do not use boiling water, water should be 94 degrees (boil your water and let it sit for about 3 minutes).
  • Steeping time is 5 minutes, and keep in mind you only need 2-3 pearls.
  • Jasmine tea offers many health benefits, including a reduced risk of cancer, lower heart rate, blood pressure, stroke and cholesterol levels.
  • It has a medium amount of caffeine.
  • It’s smells very clean and fresh, very floral.
  • Probably a tea I would add milk to.
  • If you are considering sweetening your tea, consider Steevia instead of Agave. Read why here.

The bottom line?

I loved this one! It’s not overtly floral and it’s a very light black tea. A lot of black pearled teas are quite intense, this one is just in the middle.   If you’ve never tried a pearled tea, you should definitely give this one a go.

So until next time,  That’s Tea To Me.

    Have to say, I’m not a huge Jasmine fan…

    You got me on “It’s a great breakfast tea”!  I like milk in my tea in the morning, too!

    tried this one yesterday and it was amazing!!  Couldn’t imagine what jasmin would taste like with a black tea, but it was surprisingly very delicious!!  Light, yet malty!

  • Tim

    After trying this tea today, I found it quite floral in taste, even with milk in it!  A nice black tea “malt” taste as well.  Steeped for 5 min at 94 C.
