Jasmine Pearls

The best Jasmine Pearls in the UK. Naturally fragrant and smooth.
Our award-winning Jasmine Pearls are recognised as one of the finest jasmine teas in the UK. Hand-rolled young green tea buds are suffused with fresh jasmine blossoms in the traditional way. Most jasmine tea is artificially scented, but ours is natural, capturing the delicacy of the jasmine flower without overwhelming the sweet, creamy softness of the green tea.
This tea is also available in a Canton Pyramid teabag.

Winning multiple Golds in the Great Taste Awards each year we entered: irresistible aromatic notes in the perfect jasmine tea

A wonderful daily treat

5

/ 5

These Jasmine Pearls are simply the best and have become a daily treat. My wife and I share a pot everyday after lunch when we are at home. I brew them in a glass teapot so that I can watch them unfold and judge the strength. We then go for a walk and drink a second infusion when we get back. Both the flavour and the colour change from the first to the second infusion. Sheer magic!

New to Piao 1 and jasmine pearls

5

/ 5

Sorry this took so long to create but I had to wait over a week to get my temperature controlled kettle to go with my Piao 1 and pearls. The wait was definitely worth it! First infusion was very delicate and I am writing this as I drink. The next infusions should be even better. I am hooked! Still to try my Rooibos but expect the same quality. Much better than store bought teabags.

Excellent tea and lasts forever

/ 5

We bought 2 x 50 gram bags in early December and although we're drinking it every day we're still on our first bag. Delicate and fresh tasting. This is our new go-to pearl supplier.

Fragrant, refined, light golden tea for the connoisseur

My daughter-in-law is a selective tea-drinker. She put Jasmine Pearls on her Christmas wish list which rather amused me. I looked them up on-line and from the price realised they were a treat. I ordered them for her. Her light-weight gift from me did not disappoint and I now enjoy drinking it with her from glass cups and saucers.

Favorite Jasmin Tea

This is my favourite tea of all. It has such a beautiful, rich flavour with a lovely floral bouquet.

Fragrant, delicate, beautifully tasty.

A relaxing end of day or refreshingly bright reading the paper, sitting in the sunshine tea.

Best you can buy

5

/ 5

I love these and when Canton were out of stock just before Christmas I bought some from another reputable tea retailer and they were awful! Thank goodness Canton have these back in stock. I can't bear to be without them. They reward with multiple infusions and they are so fragrant and delicious. Thank you.

Best Jasmine pearls ever!

5

/ 5

I have been a drinker of Jasmine tea for many years in various formats but at long last and after continually searching for the best I have now found it from the Canton Tea Co. These little pearls are perfect for keeping in my handbag for trips out and I find that just 2 in a mug of tea produces the light fragrant tea I love.

The best I've found

5

/ 5

A couple of years ago, my wife brought a box of jasmine pearls back with her from a business trip to China. They made a delicious and subtle drink and when they ran out, I searched the internet to find more. I tried a number of different pearls but none came close to the flavour of the original ones. I'm very pleased to have found your website, as these pearls taste exactly as I remember. The real thing, in other words.

Great Tea

5

/ 5

A lovely delicate tea with a hint of sweetness. I have handed some around at the offices I am based in and folks love it.

Finest tasting tea anywhere

5

/ 5

This is the finest tasting tea I know. It is not too strong so I can drink lots of it, especially first thing in the morning, it is so refreshing. It is gently sweetened by the petals of the jasmine flower which gives it such a subtle taste and creates an aroma that is second to none!

Wonderful tea

5

/ 5

I absolutely love this tea. A cup in the morning when I start work is the most wonderful ritual, and it puts me in a really good frame of mind for the day.

My favorite tea

This is my favorite tea from Canton Tea Co. by far. So delicate and tasty. Could drink it all day. Love it!

Great tea

This tea is exactly as described and tastes great - beautiful, fragrant jasmine in subtle green tea.

Pure delicate quality

5

/ 5

I'm delighted with my order. It came promptly and well packaged. The fragrance of these jasmine pearls is fantastic - so fresh and delicate smelling. I like start my day off with a cup of jasmine tea, I feel like I've finally got top quality tea for my morning ritual! Great stuff.

delicious rounded tea great to have to hand when travelling

5

/ 5

This is a wonderful soft and rounded tea with no bitternness which has sustained me on my travels in all sorts of conditions. It can be calming but is also a good pick-me-up and is also quite good at halting hunger pangs. It works as well as a single pearl in a mug in a hotel room, or anywhere remote that has access at least to boiled water, as it does in a pot and a china cup. These days, I don't travel without it.

Great tea

5

/ 5

This is excellent tea, though I just use one pearl per cup and get great flavour.

Great Tast

5

Love this Jasmine, better than all others I've had so far. I can tell a big diff. between the quality of CantonTea and other brands. This is too tasty!

By far my favourite

5

/ 5

This was my first taster of Jasmine Pearls and I was taken aback by the beautiful delicate flavour. Price is good as you do not need many to make the perfect cuppa. Light and refreshing - my favourite tea by a long way.

Excellent

5

Light, fragrant and delicious.
I order this with a couple of other teas and have to say am very impressed with the quality of all the teas and the service.
Thank you Canton Tea Co.

Great taste and Very Refreshing

5

/ 5

This is my daily tea and its great to drink at work. I usually put 4 pearls into a cup of hot water and watch the pearls unfurl. My work colleagues are fascinated by this and I regularly have to purchase orders for the department - I think we are all hooked on Jasmine Pearls. This tea also has a great fresh and refreshing taste. This is a great word of mouth tea that your friends will also want to try. Go and place your order - you wont be disappointed.

Excellent jasmine tea.

This is the very best Jasmine tea I have ever had the -pleasure of tasting --- I am hooked!!
The sample pack was for my son, who loved it! Thank you Canton

Excellent, fragrant tea- highly recommended.

5

/ 5

Green tea has amazing health benefits and I frequently recommend green tea to people. However, many people have only tried green tea from a tea bag with sub par taste. Jasmine pearls are an excellent introduction to green tea. In my family, jasmine pearls are a staple and we always purchase a smaller bag for when we travel to ensure we do not miss out. Canton's jasmine pearls are wonderful, incredibly fragrant and their delivery impressively fast. There is nothing sub- standard. I have brought home tea directly from China and I actually find this tea much nicer. They have obviously sourced their tea in China better than I had while visiting. Thank you, Canton!

Delicious tea

5

/ 5

These taster packets are great for little surprise presents, or a treat for me! Delicious, delicate tea.

the lengths I have gone to.....

5

/ 5

My passion for Jasmine tea has meant that for many years I have badgered, harassed, ordered and insisted that my friends travelling to the far east bring me back the best Jasmine tea they can find. They dutifully have, and mostly I have been delighted until a friend was stopped and kept by customs officers for several hours while the tea in his bag was checked in case it was not actually tea at all ! I felt terribly guilty, and switched to scouring the internet. I have tried it all and been hugely disappointed until now. Eureka, the best Jasmine tea available in this country. Happy bunny.

Fantastic!

5

/ 5

Love these jasmin pearls. The taste is wonderful as is the fragrance. Would hesitate to get them anywhere else as not sure the quality will compare.
The service is also unbeatable as both times I have ordered with Canton my delivery has arrived within 2 days!!

The delivery was fast and the tea is delicious.

5

/ 5

Thank you very much for the delivery of my order placed with you for Jasmine Pearls.
I was very happy with your service. The delivery was fast and the tea is delicious.
I would definitely recommend you to my friends – when hopefully they can too enjoy some of your wonderful teas.
Very happy with the Canton Tea Co website and services received.
I will definitely be ordering from yourselves again in the future

Fabulous!

The best Jasmine tea i have ever tried. Easy to get right - just count the pearls - I use.

Excellent product, outstanding service

I had ordered some pearls as a birthday present for my mother in law and she was very impressed with the tea, so much so I have ordered them for me and the taste is so amazing! Excellent service as I also had to call up to change the delivery address and customer service outstanding.

Lovely tea

5

/ 5

I bought jasmine pearls from this company as a friend recommended how lovely the tea was. It really is very good. I was also very impressed and surprised at the speed of the delivery. It came the following morning and I ordered it the previous afternoon. I bought the glass teapot and infuser which i really like. I will be using the canton tea company to buy my tea in the future as I can't fault it.

Smooth fragrant tea

5

/ 5

An excellent tea for bouquet and flavour. Many infusions from the same serving if treated with respect (water at correct temperature). Well packaged although there was some crushing (possibly the post) and therefore the pearls were about 50% broken up, the flavour was unimpaired. It has just meant having a little tea dust in my brews.

an exceptionally pleasing example of Jasmine tea

5

/ 5

Overall an exceptionally pleasing example of Jasmine tea, with a taste that continues to linger of the palette, both with tea notes and most surprisingly the sweet flavor of Jasmine is still very much apparent as well as hanging around on the nose. And joy of joys, not a smidge of that of-putting bitter soapiness so often found in a Jasmine tea. I’d certainly purchase this again, indeed this is already my second order!

My first taste of this tea was a beautiful surpise, I could not believe how light, floral and delicate it was to drink at anytime of day I'm now about to order a larger amount. My tea order arrived so fast. What great customer service.

most elegant tea!

Such a beautiful tea, it looks great and it is just amazing, I have given it as gifts to a few none green tea drinkers and this has converted them!
It really is the best jasmine green tea I have ever tried and I no longer look to better it, this is my tea of choice.

Pearls of the Orient

These jasmine pearls are as pearls of the orient and early as gorgeous as jasmine silver needle!

Makes a brilliant present

5

This is my favourite tea from the Canton Tea co and makes a brilliant present. Friends remember it and come back months later asking me 'Where did you get that lovely jasmine pearl tea? ' The excellant booklet makes it a special gift too.

very smooth

/ 5

I bought some jasmine pearls in Harrods 10 years ago and have yearned to find something as good....... this was an excellent find and is spot on. These 'pearls' are a perfect balance and nice and fresh. One dropped into hot water is my bed time tipple!

Excellent and refreshing

5

/ 5

Just a few pearls in a pot or cup create a really delicate, fragrant and refreshing brew that goes on for many infusions. I love this tea. I even love watching the pearls expand in the water.

Outstanding

5

/ 5

Canton Tea Co has just sent me a nice box containing Jasmine Pearls. Thank you. Inside is also your lovely booklet entitled Fine Tea.

I just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed the booklet and jasmine pearl tea. It is beautifully presented and printed, a great find. Nice picture of the Taeping clipper too. For what it is worth I prefer jasmine pearls to the classic Long Jing and to Silver Needle but that is of course a matter of taste.

In the Shangri La Hotel Shanghai in a superior way I asked for their best green tea. Long Jing appeared in a tiny cup; and it cost a fortune, 60 Yuan. Cheaper from the Canton Tea Co.

it's obvious why this is a world-class, award-winning tea. It's exquisite.

"The tea is unbelievably smooth. Unsurprisingly, it has none of the bitterness that comes with cheap jasmine flavoured teas. It's creamy, milky, and gentle with a surprising very subtle smoky undertone. The smokiness comes out more with later steeps, but even then, the tea remains smooth. The creamy base tea pairs beautifully with the floral jasmine. It's a very delicate tea, so on the surface, it seems simple, but once you start looking, you notice all the subtle complexities" Read the full review here: http://www.teaviews.com/2012/01/27/review-canton-tea-co-jasmine-pearl-tea-6/

Amazing - best value for money anywhere!

5

/ 5

So having lived in Hong Kong I used to have something similar shipped over. Having found Canton tea there is no need for that anymore. These pearls are amazing. YOu may be wondering if you should spend the money but trust me it is worth it. They go a long way, can be re infused and best of all the flavour is amazing, delicate and just perfect! Nothing artificial just pure, gorgeous tea!

aromatic but not overpowering

5

/ 5

I'm one of those people who tried a (probably cheap!) jasmine tea years ago and couldn't fathom out why anyone would drink "perfume".

Along came my sample pack from Canton Tea so I thought I'd try it out. What a difference! It's not an overpowering tea at all - it's scented and delicate and an incredibly relaxing tea. It's my new favourite (and I have many!). I would highly recommend this to anyone a bit cautious about jasmine tea. And there is the added bonus of watching the lovely pearls unravel in your cup!

a phenomenal jasmine pearl

"The flavor is so soft and creamy. Not a buttery kind of creamy taste (although every once in a while, I could swear I taste a buttery note). Instead it’s a smooth, rich kind of creamy taste. The green tea/white tea tastes so fresh and even though it is a lighter tasting tea, it has a richness to it that ties in to that creaminess I mentioned."

The best I've tried so far

5

/ 5

Refined, balanced, persistent without being overdone. The aroma is intoxicating, but with elegance and naturalness; the flavour is sweet and complex throughout many infusions. The best jasmine pearls I've tried so far.

Superlative Jasmine

5

/ 5

Wow. I was totally blown away by this tea. From the moment you open the foil bag, the rich jasmine scent pervades throughout the tea. But this alone does not define this tea. What defines this tea is a superb balance achieved through the blending of a rich and flavorful green tea and beautiful floral notes of jasmine that work harmoniously with one another and simply tastes amazing. Truly this tea excels in its iced form, I simply could not stop drinking this tea. A decadent fragranced iced tea that was soothing and refreshing simultaneously. One thing I truly appreciated about this tea was that the jasmine was not overpowering. My girlfriend, a new tea drinker, was readily able to distinguish the gentleness of the jasmine and how it lent to creating a more flavorful tea, as opposed to being overpowering. We had tried jasmine pearl blends from other companies, and it was evident that they all employed Jasmine oil to over fragrance their tea. Instead of something that tastes of jasmine all you could taste was the Jasmine. In Whatever form you choose to enjoy this tea, you will certainly be rewarded with one of the best flavors without exception. I love this tea. Beyond endorsed.

Exceptional

5

/ 5

This tea is wonderful and perfect. The jasmine flavour is both pure and delicate. The mouthfeel is silky. Drinking this tea seems to transport me somewhere else...

Awesome!!!

5

/ 5

Finally, after spending nearly £50 on so-called "Jasmine Dragon Balls", "Jasmine Flavoured Tea" and other teas masquerading as the real thing I found a company who obviously knows what they are talking about. The second you open the bag the heady aroma of Jasmine fills your nostrils and the taste and balance of the tea to Jasmine ratio is just spot on. Please, please, please, if you like Jasmine tea then dont waste your money on inferior products when this is quite possibly the best on the market.

Delicious

/ 5

"If a flower could be described as being delicious, this would be the epitome of such a description. The amount of jasmine is enough to lend great character to the tea, while not completely dominating it."

"The only word that I can find to describe this tea is lovely. It was perfectly balanced between the sweetness of the jasmine and the white tea. It was not perfumy as some jasmine teas can be and there was very little astringency."

This is Jasmine tea!

5

/ 5

I believe many (if not all) of the Jasmine teas I've had over the course of my 30 some odd years, have been flavored with oils or who knows what. This tea is clearly not. It is just absolutely delicious.

Delicate and genuine jasmine

5

/ 5

This is truly one of the most delicate and genuine jasmines i have tasted ever i've tasted plenty (nearly 2 decades in China!). It has a subtle, insinuating sweetness, that unlike so many jasmines found in the west is not overpowering or artificial. I really enjoy it first thing in the morning, it's got to be one of the nicest ways to digest dreams and slip into the day! Thank you Canton Tea, looking forward to the Oolongs!
Fantastic Tea!!!

The silver needle is high grade and you can tell that it was harvested at just the right time.

5

/ 5

My favorite type of tea (thus far) is white tea, more specifically, silver needle, so I was crazy excited to try this one. The only thing that made me hesitate was the fact that it was jasmine flavored. I like the smell of Jasmine but I don’t like teas that taste like perfume. other Jasmine teas made me feel like I was back in the elevator with that lady who was wearing cheap jasmine perfume (ended up having the taste from it in my mouth all day).

So I sat down and brewed this tea, anticipating that funky taste. As soon as I opened the package, I could tell that this Jasmine was different. The pearls are really pretty and the tea smells like a dream. Steeped it for five minutes, though they recommend only a few, watched the pearls come to life and unravel in my cup. The color was really light as you’d expect from a silver needle. The smell was very calming, soothing and not even slightly artificial. Yes, I was pleasantly surprised – made me feel like I was in a spa. The silver needle is high grade and you can tell that it was harvested at just the right time. The Jasmine scent was infused naturally which explains why I was spared the aftertaste. Steeped it three times and it did really well. The scent was milder by the third brew but the silver needle carried it through perfectly.

Absolutely gorgeous

These pearls are absolutely gorgeous, and are filled with the intoxicating aroma of Jasmine. The taste has a sweet finish, leaving the Jasmine flower smell in the aroma and the Jasmine sweetness in the liquor. I really enjoyed this tea, and imagine that it would be amazing iced!

Stunning

By far the best Jasmine tea I have ever tried and I have tasted loads!

Amazing Taste!

5

I have tried a number of Jasmine Teas, they often taste enhanced by oils or flavours. The Canton Tea Co. tea is unrivalled in comparison, fresh, crisp and an amazing jasmine flavour that runs through but without overpowering - perfect. The best tea I have tasted.

Wonderful flavour

I have always loved the taste and fragrance of Jasmine Tea. I have shopped around and tried many Jasmine teas but none of them could ever be compared to this jasmine tea. This is a wonderful tea, loads of flavour and the fragrance is amazing. Perfect Jasmine 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.
