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.
This tea contains a moderate level of 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.

Fresh From Origin
Jasmine tea production is a two-step process. The tea is harvested and finished in the spring, then carefully stored until the summer, when the jasmine starts to bloom at night. Each evening, the tea is carefully layered with fresh blooms, which will open and give their scent to the tea. In the morning, the flowers are removed and the process is repeated again that evening. This happens several nights in a row until the tea master has the aroma balance just right. In the end, the tea is refired to dry off any flower moisture imparted to the leaf. This is why some jasmines can have a toasty finish.

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.”
