Origin

Hunan, China renowned for both their aroma and appearance, Jasmine Pearls are a fine representative of the art of Chinese handcrafted teas.

Choicest Leaves

In making Jasmine Pearls only the choicest leaves of the tea plant are used. After plucking, the leaves are 'withered' on traditional bamboo trays to reduce their moisture, making them supple and condusive for hand rolling. Mature leaves are then removed leaving only the newly sprouted bud and its long stem.

Handrolling

The technique for handrolling pearls takes years to master. Using a soft cotton paper, the top bud stem are gently twisted between the thumb and index finger into a small 'pearl' shape. After firing over low heat, each pearl is removed from the paper. One pound of tea is composed of nearly 2000 pearls.

Jasmine Infusion

In the summer, when Jasmine flowers are at their most fragrant, the pearls are scented overnight in a room with thousands of blossoms. High grade Jasmine Pearls undergo this process at least five times.

Sweet Fragrance

Jasmine is by far one of the sweetest, most soothing aromatic flowers. Jasmine Pearls capture this essence and release the fragrance of night-blooming jasmine in every brewed cup.

Suggested Use

Brewing

Steep one level teaspoon of pearls in eight ounces of pure spring or filtered water of 175F for four minutes. Provides at least three infusions.
