Jasmine Pearls Pyramids

Green tea buds infused only with fresh, natural jasmine blossom.
Our handmade Jasmine Pearls deliver one of the world's finest jasmine teas. Soft young green tea buds are infused with fresh jasmine blossoms to make a heady, fragrant, infusion. Most so-called jasmine tea is artificially scented, but ours is completely natural, capturing the delicacy of the jasmine flower without overwhelming the sweet, creamy softness of the green tea. This is why it has won multiple stars at the Great Taste Awards every time it's been entered.

This tea is also available in loose leaf.

Our customers call it: Awesome. The best. Full-flavoured. Fantastic! Available in biodegradable pyramids so you can always have it with you.

THE BEST IN THE WORLD !

These Jasmine Pearls are the best in the world . I have travelled all over the globe and can not find any tea to touch this beautiful brand . The Pyramid bags are great . I leave mine in for 4 minuets not 1-2 as recommended for an outstanding result .

Still the freshest, still the best there is anywhere. I tried another brand as a stopgap but they were bitter with very little Jasmine flavour, so I won't be doing that again, I will just need to get my order in before I run out.

Sorry!

This pack just did not live up to the name Jasmine Pearls. I've watched this tea being made in China - with the grower throwing the beautiful blossoms onto the dried leaves. I love my jasmine tea and I had some wonderful stuff from you some time ago, but this was tasteless and what I might have expected from a much less specialist company for a fraction of the price. Like the previous reviewer, I wondered if I had just got a bad bag. I would very much appreciate a free sample of something that tastes like your old jasmine tea to prove that it is still available.

does not brew to full flavour

I am sorry to be probably the first negative review. Everyone keeps raving about full flavor but I don't feel so at all. In a normal tea-brewing time, it turns out so faintly flavored that I stopped drinking it. Could it be that my pack was faulty?

Great fresh flavour and lots of scent

Really pleased. Will definitely order again. Have tried other jasmine teas but the flavour is often too subtle. No such problems here. Great quality well-scented tea.

Well, what a refreshing change, I have some existing Jasmine Pearls from another supplier in pyramid bags but these are overloaded with leaves and the taste is very, very strong. With these from the Conton Tea Co there are not so many pearls in the bag but the taste is sooo fresh and full of Jasmine flavour, these are by far the best I have ever tasted.

A gorgeous treat for a jaded palate, subtle, refreshing, quite beautiful, really.

Jasmine Pearls Pyramids

The most Jasmine-y tea there is

5

/ 5

Well, if you like Jasmine tea, this is the most Jasmine-y tea I've tasted, tasting very much like Jasmine flower petals, a very light and delicate flavor. Most teas usually have at least some bit of a bitter flavor from the tea leaves, but in this, I can barely even taste the tea, well at least I can't taste the bitter flavor that usually accompanies most teas. The pearls, which are basically round balls that are rolled-up green tea leaves, are quite innovative, as they trap the flavor inside, not exposing the tea in the middle of the rolled-up area to the outside air, which could lead to oxidation (given the oxygen omnipresent in Earth's atmosphere and the air we breathe), or lead to the taste/smell gradually dissipating into the air. The first time you open the bag full of teabags, if you sniff inside you will smell a VERY strong smell of Jasmine. The pyramid-shaped teabags are also quite innovative, I have seen this also used by other tea companies, it is generally considered the best type of teabag. None of the tea gets stuck in one place in the teabag, it is all free to float around inside the teabag. This is essential with these pearls, as the wrapped-up tea leaves that make up the pearls unroll and expose all their surface area, once exposed to hot water, and then, because they are inside pyramid-shaped teabags, they have enough room to unroll and float around inside the hot water, with all their surface area now exposed to the hot water, allowing for the tea to rapidly steep and become quite flavorful. So this is quite a brilliant way to trap the flavor inside up until the time that the tea is brewed, and then allow the flavor to be released into the hot water quite quickly. The smooth, delicate, flowery taste of Jasmine, without even the slightest hint of bitterness, is what you will taste when you drink it. Personally, I am so used to teas that have at least some bit of bitter aftertaste, that I currently mix the Jasmine pearls with more regular, cheaper sorts of tea, because I personally like at least some bit of bitter aftertaste, and this tea does not have any at all. But that is just something I do out of habit because I am very much used to ordinary, cheaper teas, and the stark difference between those and this sort of tea is a bit much for me to deal with, since I am so used to at least some bit of harsh, bitter aftertaste for tea after many years of tea-drinking, that the complete absence of it is a little bit shocking to me and I don't quite know what to make of it, I can hardly believe that what I am drinking is tea, if I have the Jasmine Pearls pyramid tea by itself without mixing in a bit of more regular tea, to make it taste a bit more like what I am used to drinking (I am a creature of habit after all, who has drunk cheaper teas for years and only recently decided to try out something special and get this really high-end, top-quality tea for once, and it is very very different from what I'm used to). Still, I like the flavor a lot and think that if I continue drinking it, I will get more used to the flavor and learn to prefer it better without mixing in cheaper teas just to add a bit of the bitter aftertaste that I am so used to, that I so closely associate with tea that if it isn't there, it is hard for me to conceive of what I am drinking as being tea. Anyway, just to reiterate, if you've tried Jasmine teas that you buy at an ordinary supermarket, and think that this tea is going to be similar to them but just slightly better-tasting, no, that is not true at all, this tea is altogether different from any of the teas you can find at an ordinary supermarket, and drinking it is quite a unique experience. I had 2 other family members taste it and the one who regularly drinks tea loved it but, like me, thought it was quite unique and different from any tea she'd ever had. The other family member, who almost always drinks coffee instead of tea, and tends to make his coffee using a machine that makes it taste extremely harsh and bitter and always has his coffee black without any cream or sugar, and generally isn't fond of tea or anything flowery or delicate-tasting, well he couldn't stand it at all, he hated it, said that the flowery taste was overwhelming and it was like having an entire flower garden in his mouth. So there you have it; if your favorite drink is black coffee this probably isn't for you, but if you like flowery, delicate teas, this should be at the top of your list. I am thinking perhaps I will try adding sugar or maybe honey to this tea and see how that tastes; I am pretty sure this tea would go very well with a bit of sugar or honey to make it taste nice and sweet. Usually the beverages I have that taste flowery or delicate at all have a lot of high fructose corn syrup in them, so the lack of sugar in this, combined with its lack of bitterness, means that none of the 5 types of taste receptors on the human tongue (sweet, salty, sour, bitter, and savory) get activated at all by this tea, and you only taste it due to the smell receptors in the nose that are also used whenever tasting a food or drink. Usually I am used to the taste receptors on my tongue having a response whenever I consume anything other than plain water, so the lack of any nervous system response from the sweet, salty, sour, bitter, and savory taste buds on my tongue made it seem more like I was smelling the tea than tasting it, when it was in my mouth. When you drink this it is a bit more like smelling a fine perfume than tasting something. Regardless, if you try this tea, I am sure you will find it to be unforgettable and quite unique, and you'll probably enjoy it, unless you're too closed-minded about trying new things. But anyone who is that closed-minded about new things wouldn't be buying this tea in the first place, so if you are already open-minded enough to be buying this tea to try it out, you are almost certainly exactly the sort of person who will love it.

I've had jasmin tea before but I wish I'd found the pearls version first. It is very tasty. I wanted something I could take with me and have the right portion wherever without the need for leaves leftovers so I thought I'd try these teabags.

After a long days work, and before I start my university work, I sat down with a nice large cup, with tea bag popped in. I boiled and let cool some filtered water (love my filter kettle) and poured in the water and let it steep for a few minutes. Sat back and took a taste, the aroma was stronger than I expected and the taste was awesome.

I would recommend filtering water beforehand but thats just my preference. It is tasty, enjoyable and can make more than one cup with the teabag. All in all, great in my opinion.

I've used both the loose jasmine pearls and the pyramid jasmine pearls. First of all, the tea is lovely! It's infuses nicely and has a really nice flavour to it. I really can't fault it! Out of all the teas I've tried (which is quite a lot now!), the jasmine tea has got to be my favourite. The pyramids are perfect at the office as it stops you having to fiddle about with the loose leafs and it contains everything nicely within the bag. Simply pop it in like you would with a normal tea bag and once it's finished infusing, put it in the bin. Simples!

Can't fault it, fast delivery, great quality tea and can't really fault the flavour at all. I couldn't tell the difference between the loose leaf and the pyramids as the other user above could...

I love loose jasmine pearls that I get from Canton - they are my regular afternoon tea of choice when I am at home but they are a bit more awkward to use at work so I was delighted to see the pyramid tea bags that I thought would be perfect for this purpose. They are miles better than your average jasmine teabag but I miss the flavours that seem to expand more with the loose leaf that I brew in a glass jug. Better than any other jasmine teabag but not the same as the loose tea!

The long green tea buds are hand-picked from the young green tea plants and are heated soon after picking to arrest oxidation of the leaves. They are then carefully stored for several weeks until the Jasmine flowers blossom. The tea buds are very skilfully hand rolled into perfect spheres and layered over several nights with the fresh Jasmine blossoms.

Jasmine tea is great with food - as delicious with a light summer lunch as it is with Dim Sum or a winter supper, it also makes a fabulous Iced Tea and a cocktail ingredient. Can also be used in cooking - try as an inspired way to add authentic jasmine flavour to rice.This is one of the few authentic Jasmine teas available in the UK and was made by our own supplier.

At the Great Taste Awards it was independently blind-tasted by a series of panels - comprising passionate foodies, food industry heavy-weights and well-known restaurateurs - and was judged to be the best.
