Hand rolled pearls made by rolling tender shoots and buds of tea leaves. As the tea steeps the pearls gently unfurl to release the aroma of jasmine.
Jasmine pearl is made by rolling the tender shoots of the tea leaves and buds into beautiful pearls. The tea is then separated into mesh trays and placed in a heated drier. In between each tray of tea pearls, a mesh tray of freshly picked jasmine flowers is placed. The drier gently blows warm air through the tea and the blossoms, allowing the tea to gently absorb the scent of the flowers. In the morning the trays are removed, and the process repeated for up to 6 nights. The pearls are then re-fired to remove any moisture absorbed from the blossoms.
- Start with your favorite spring or filtered water. Heat the water to between 160 F and 180 F,
- Use a teaspoon (3g) for a 6oz serving. Please note, for denser teas this is about 1 teaspoon; for larger-leaf teas this could be up to 2 tablespoons.
- Steep for 1-3 minutes. Experiment with steeping times, amount of tea and water temperature to personalize your tea experience. Rely on taste, not color. Lengthen subsequent steeping times for additional infusions.
