Tips for Tea Connoisseurs
Jasmine Phoenix Pearls (aka. Jasmine Dragon Pearls) are hand-rolled, Chinese artisan green tea which has been scented with jasmine blossoms. When tea leaves are harvested and the green tea making process is completed in spring, the finished green tea is carefully stored until summer when jasmine flowers start to bloom. Then the tea is layered with fresh jasmine blossoms during the night and the jasmine blossoms are removed in the following morning. This natural scenting process is repeated several nights until the aroma balance of the jasmine blossoms and green tea meets the standard of the skilful tea master.
Our exquisite Jasmine Phoenix Pearls Green Tea comes from Fuding, Fujian Province of China, which has the best reputation for jasmine tea. While brewing, the tightly rolled pearls start to unfurl, releasing opulent and rich, sweet jasmine aromas. The liquor offers almost acacia honey-like sweetness with a lingering refreshing, floral finish. As tea connoisseurs may well have noticed, the high level of craftsmanship is also shown in the unfurled, brewed tea leaves, which shows meticulous fine plucking of one tiny, tender leaf and an unopened bud.
When cold-brewed, our Jasmine Phoenix Pearls Green Tea makes a highly fragrant, refreshing iced tea as well. Simply brew approximately 12g of the tea in 1L carafe overnight in the fridge. It can be enjoyed as a refreshing apero in the summer evenings as a healthy, non-alcoholic alternative. You may well find it as your all-time favourite after your gym session!
For jasmine tea enthusiasts, we suggest trying Jasmine Phoenix Pearls with our other varieties of jasmine teas - Jasmine Silver Needle, Jasmine Oolong and Wild Jasmine Green Tea - to taste the differences.
