Jasmine Pearls is a delight to watch unfold as well as to drink. Early-picked green tea leaves are carefully rolled into small pearls with a white downy striping. Once rolled, the pearls wait until the jasmine flowers are harvested later in the summer. For a high-grade pearl such as ours, the flower petals are introduced and then removed after imparting their fragrance, a process that may be repeated up to seven times. Our supplier's family has been making jasmine teas for generations in Fujian Province and his skill is evident. This tea is exquisite, a sweet and delicate green redolent with fresh scent of jasmine.


Tea Notes

Once the pearl is rolled, it is allowed to lightly oxidize. This renders the leaf "tea ready" to better absorb the jasmine flower scent.

The pearl is a high quality green leaf and bud. Picked early in the spring for its appearance and "sweetness".
