Jasmine Pearls Tea

  • Sale
  • $ 5.50


OVERVIEW

Fine Chinese green tea leaves carefully hand-rolled into pearls and scented with jasmine blossoms.

Like a plant growing from a seed, Jasmine Pearls go through the "agony of the leaf" during brewing and unfurl in a similar manner. Give them a try and you'll see why we took this tea as our namesake. Fresh and sensual, Jasmine Pearls can be steeped up to 3 times. Jasmine Pearls are hand-rolled young Chinese green tea leaves, generally from Fujian Province, though they are produced in other provinces. The rolled pearls are dried, then blended with unopened night-blooming jasmine flowers. Over the course of a night, the flowers open and release their aroma into the tea, flavoring it and giving it the heady scent associated with the tea. The next morning, the flowers are removed and the operation is done all over again - up to six times for high-quality jasmine teas!

INGREDIENTS:

Hand rolled Chinese green tea leaves scented with jasmine blossoms.

BREWING INSTRUCTIONS (8 OZ. SERVING)

  1. Scoop a slightly heaping teaspoon of tea leaves into your infuser.
  2. Heat water to 190° (just before boiling).
  3. Pour 8 oz. of water over tea leaves.
  4. Steep tea for 3-5 minutes (depending on taste preference).
  5. Remove infuser and enjoy tea.

POTFUL:

Simply add to your infuser one heaping teaspoonful of leaf per 8 oz. of water and place it in your pot, then add the appropriate amount of 190° water and let it steep for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the infuser and serve!

ICED TEA INSTRUCTIONS:

Our opinion is that a cooled concentrate works best, as regular-strength brew tends to become watery as the ice melts. So, use the above leaf quantities, but half the water, allow it to cool, then pour it over ice and enjoy! The brew will dilute down to proper strength as the ice melts.
