These Jasmine pearls are superlative! Bit pricey - but can't recommend it highly enough! I am a huge fan of Jasmine Tea, and this one takes the biscuit! Only downside is, runs out too quickly! Tin is too huge for the 50g bag - but a nice tin nonetheless. Compact and elegant.(Posted on 12/30/13)
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.

|Chinese Name||Mo Li Zhen Zhu Cha 茉莉珍珠茶|
|English Pronunciation||Maw lee jen joo char|
|Leaf Appearance||The long silvery tea buds are rolled into perfect spheres marbled with strips of sage green and pearl white. They unfurl as they steep in hot water.|
|Aroma||Sweet intoxicating Jasmine over soft honey notes.|
|Liquor||The liquor is a pale green.|
|Tasting Notes||A sweet, round, heady Jasmine infusion which allows the base notes of the velvety cream leaf to come through and make a perfectly balanced whole.|
|Quick Brewing Instructions||Use just a few pearls (1tsp) per cup (200ml) and brew cool, around 75°C (167°F), allowed to steep for 2-3 minutes and infuse at least 3 times. Infuse the leaves repeatedly. The pearls will unravel as they steep and continue to release a wonderful flavour.|
