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.
