How It Tastes

Jasmine Downy Pearls is a light and sweet tea, very delicate and delicious. The pearl-shaped green tea leaves taste close to white tea - very smooth, lightly herbal and grapey-sweet. The jasmine scent is clean and fragrant with a hint of magnolia. Even when brewed directly in a glass and left to steep, this tea will not turn bitter.

History

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.

Bought from Peet's and it is not nearly as good as the original Peet's jasmine pearl tea.

One of the first Green teas I tried after I started at Peet's in 2001 and have been hooked ever since!

I describe this as Heaven in a cup and never fail to smile in contentment when i catch the aroma, let alone enjoy the flavor as it dances across my tongue!

I totally love this elegant pearl shaped tea. Its light a light green tea and the floral fragrance of Jasmine is simply uplifting.

This was the first tea I totally fell in love with at Peet’s and still love to this day. The jasmine aroma reminds me of summers in Shanghai, while the leaves unfurling from their pearls is pure elegance (also a nice visual cue that the tea is ready to drink!).
