Hunan, China renowned for both their aroma and appearance, Jasmine Pearls are a fine representative of the art of Chinese handcrafted teas.
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.
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.
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.
Jasmine is by far one of the sweetest, most soothing aromatic flowers. Jasmine Pearls capture this essence in every brewed cup.
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.
Green tea leaves, jasmine flowers.

First, the can: It used to have a vacuum lid under the twist off outer lid on the can. Now it just comes with the twist off lid. Next, the pearls: the last can I received had mostly broken up pearls (loose leaves), and the flavor is harsher than previous batches. Will not repurchase since the quality seems to be on a downslide. I will try "Just a Leaf" jasmine green tea next and hope it has the quality and taste of earlier versions of Tao's.
