Jasmine Pearl China Sourced from:
China

Louise the tea taster says

These tea temples house lovely little pearls of hand-rolled green tea tips which have been delicately infused with pure jasmine flowers. The leaves are just allowed to rest amongst the flowers to pick up their floral scent - jasmine tea doesn't get any purer than this. Once you cover with water,, the leaves will unfurl from the hand-rolled pearl to reveal a whole leaf and a bud - surprisingly hypnotic viewing we think! These particular pearls are often called "dragon phoenix pearls" – that’s because the tea bushes on the hillside  look like a dragon coming out of the water. Although I've seen these bushes climbing the hillside I've yet to see a dragon getting out of a bath, so I can't vouch for the accuracy of this claim, unfortunately!

How does it taste?

Very delicate green tea with a light, floral, refreshing, natural jasmine taste.

Good if you're feeling

in need of relaxation and detox. Like all teas, this is bursting with antioxidants - the good guys that help keep us young and healthy

How we like it

Brew Time

  • boiling_water
    Boiling Water
  • brew_for_3_minutes
    Brew for 3+ minutes
  • One tea temple per person, infused with water at 80 degrees C. (If you don't have a fancy kettle or thermometer to hand, grabbing the kettle just before it boils will do the job!) .
  • Loose tea - 4 to 6 pearls per person. Infuse for 3+ minutes.

Whole leaves take longer to brew, but the little wait is definitely worth it

How we like it

Au naturel - glass teapot, jasmine pearls, add water and relax.

 

Iced

Just cover one tea temple with boiling water and infuse for 3 minutes. Remove temple and top-up glass with iced water.

The best

Love this tea so much! Jasmine has always been my fave, but the price elsewhere has always meant it has been a treat. Buying it through Teapigs is great because I save money and the taste is still fantastic. Really high quality tea, lovely fragrange and taste. Love it!

Delicious!

I usually hate green tea but after getting this as a gift I thought i would give it a try. It is absolutely delicious! Its light, not bitter and has a lovely light taste of jasmine! I would recommend it highly!

Another tea that has ruined any brands chance!

I'm not a massive fan of Jasmine Tea - until I tried TeaPigs Jasmine Tea - now I know I cannot buy any other brand of jasmine tea and enjoy it; they're all so bitter tasting now!

My only gripe - when can we have a 50 box please??

Simply Amazing

This tea not only smells heavenly but tastes even better. One of the best teas I have tried, and I have tried many.

persevere with it

Nearly threw up when I smelt it, very flowery (felt like I was drinking bath water)
Only have it occasionally as I prefer other flavours,but it's refreshing
