Jasmine Phoenix Pearls are perfumy, hand-rolled jewels of tea from Fuding, in Fujian province, China. Any fan of jasmine tea should try this specially crafted wonder. When added to hot water, Jasmine Phoenix Pearls majestically unfurl, releasing their delicate scent and flavor. Also known as 'Jasmine Dragon Pearls', their liquor is sweet and almost sugary. Very soft, airy mouthfeel. The delicate quality of the flavor is due in part to the leaves used to produce this tea: two tender, tiny new leaves and one plump unopened leaf bud. Younger leaves will yield softer flavor.
Green Tea | Moderate caffeine | Steep at 195° for 2-3 minutes.
Our teabags contain the same high-quality tea as our loose-tea offerings. Their pyramid shape gives the leaves plenty of room to unfurl and infuse, placing more flavor in each cup. Enjoy the superior flavor of gourmet tea with the convenience of a disposable bag.

In mythology, the phoenix is a bird that dies in fire only to rise again from its ashes. Closely related to the idea of renewal or regeneration, it has inspired and influenced countless stories since its ancient legends, including Harry Potter, which features both the Order of the Phoenix and the phoenix character Fawkes, and X-Men, which boasts the famous Phoenix character (a cosmic force frequently associated with telepath Jean Grey) and the Dark Phoenix arc. We can’t promise any super powers from our tea, but we do think you’ll feel pretty super taking a sip.

How is this tea scented? By this I mean is the tea scented from jasmine flowers or are there oils, extracts or other natural or artificial scenting agents that are added to the tea to achieve the jasmine scent?

How long have you been growing tea?
What got you started in the tea industry?
“It is a family business. We live in the tea mountain area for many generations. I began to do some simply tea work since I was 10. When I was 16, I began to work formally for tea growing and production.”
Can you describe a typical day out in the field? How many hours would that be?
“I go to pick up the tea leaves in early morning at 5-6am and go back home around 6pm. Tea mountain is a wild and big area, we need to climb the mountain and need long walking. After picking we need to go to the factory to do some producing. Some times we have to work in the evening if necessary. Normally I will work 10-11 hours a day.”
