Jasmine Downy Pearls by the Pound

Floral and refined, with a beauty as compelling as its flavor.
About this tea

Tea story

A unique and beautiful tea from Fujian province, China, only the youngest leaves are plucked. Three leaves are rolled together into a spherical “pearl” and then wrapped in silk mesh and dried by fire to set the form. Each pearl is streaked with the pale white down of the young buds. Scenting the pearls twice with fresh jasmine flowers gives the finished tea its final character.

Brewing Tips

Start with a preheated cup or teapot.
Measure 1 spoonful (3g) of tea for each cup of water.
Bring the water to boil; let it cool for 1 minute (195° F) before steeping tea for 5 minutes.
Strain leaves while pouring. Or brew in a glass mug so you can watch and savor at the same time.

I searched for over 2 years for a good jasmine tea and tried many directly form China and other brands. I have known and used Peet's Jasmine Downy Pearls for years but thought I could find a better flavor. I was wrong. I am now a proud purchaser of 1 pound bags of Peet's Jasmine Downy Pearls. Very satisfying and very good with lime aid for a summer tea.
