Hand-rolled green tea from the Fujian province of China, infused with the delicate scent of night-blooming jasmine. Each pearl is made up of just one leaf and an unopened bud, which unfolds to release a delicate floral fragrance, and a liquor of soft texture and delicately dry finish. While these pearls are not the largest or the most evenly-rolled we've seen, we could not pass up the complex elegance of this tea and its quietly hypnotic jasmine fragrance. Fujian Jasmine Pearl is a treat for all jasmine lovers. Harvest: Summer 2019.
Green Tea | Moderate caffeine | Steep at 180° for 2-3 minutes.
Jasmine plants are a group of flowering shrubs and vines in the olive family famous for their fragrant white or yellow flowers. While they are grown primarily for their fragrance, they are also used for decoration in hair or for leis, in weddings and festivals, or for religious ceremonies. Of cultural significance throughout the world, they are considered national symbols in Syria, Hawaii, Indonesia, Pakistan, the Philippines and more. When used in tea making, it is interesting to note that only the fragrance and oils of the flowers are valued, with the actual petals removed after the infusion process.
