Imperial Jasmine Pearls
$24.00 – $95.00
We are always maintain our fanatically high standards for the great jasmine tea you’ve come to know and love. This batch of Imperial Jasmine Pearls has been scented with Fujian Jasmine blossoms a whopping eleven(!) separate times, creating an incredibly elegant tea. Between each scenting, the tea is fired with charcoal by hand. The result is almost snow-white pearls, which are scented to maximize the floral aromatics, yielding an intense fragrance with an ultra-smooth mouth-feel. We haven’t seen Jasmine of this quality for many years, and are so excited to share it with you.
Fuzhou, China: Fuzhou, the capital of China’s Fujian province has been producing Jasmine teas since the Qing Dynasty. Most Jasmine tea experts will agree that the highest quality Jasmine blossoms and Jasmine teas are still produced in Fuzhou today.
For best results, we suggest brewing Jasmine Pearls in a Gaiwan at near boiling point. Infuse the pearls for a minute or two (depending on strength desired), and wait for the tea to cool a bit before enjoying. Use approximately 5 grams of pearls per 8 oz of water. Always adjust quantity of leaves, infusion time, and water temperature according to your personal preferences.
