Jasmine Pearls is a delight to watch unfold as well as to drink. This tea is certainly one of China's finest jasmine offerings. The quality of the Pearl rests with two key attributes: a high-quality, spring pick leaf that is hand rolled then kept in cool place to await the jasmine harvest. Secondly, the number of scentings the pearls receive is key to the quality of their jasmine taste. The best quality pearls are scented up to 20 times but more typically 7-8 times for today's "high-grade" pearl. The resulting jasmine flavor should be smooth and natural, building on the sweet notes of the green pearl. Lot is 2019 crop made to EU Standard. Lot # 2.
The white downy color that wraps our pearls generally indicates an early spring harvest. Steeped the leaves will unfurl and open to two leaves and a bud. The scenting of this lot is natural, soft on the tongue and lingering. Once rolled, the pearls wait until the jasmine flowers are harvested later in the summer. For a high-grade pearl such as ours, the flower petals are introduced and then removed after imparting their fragrance.
The aroma of this tea is exquisite. With water, the pearl releases a sweet and delicate green tea redolent with the fresh scent of jasmine. The taste is very natural, smooth and clean. The jasmine is soothing and goes very well food.
Use 3 grams or a bit less than a full teaspoon of pearls. Use water at 185-195 degrees F and steep for 2.5 minutes and taste. A longer steep time, of course, will build more strength in the cup. Drain the water from the pearls and use them for multiple steeps.

This is the best jasmine tea I ever. Love the strong fragrant and taste.
Silk Road Teas Jasmine Pearl is one of the best I have had. It has such a delicious jasmine flavor the fist sip that you take. It is as if you were smelling a delicious Jasmine flower. I highly recommend it!
This one is a winner among all Jazmine infused teas. I have been ordering from this company for over 15 years now, and they never fail! Thank you for the quality teas!
Wonderful jasmine tea! First steep is mainly floral (1 minute steep otherwise it is too strong for me), the green tea flavor is more evident with successive steeps. I enjoy the second steep the most. A very lovely tea!
This tea is delicious and has the best jasmine smell and taste. I have it every morning.
Have been drinking loose leaf teas for years and never get tired of this tea. great aroma and can be stepped more then the average tea. I have introduced loose leaf teas to many friends they usually don't like them, it's an acquired taste. But this tea never fails to please the novice or the seasoned pro.
I have to say this is my favorite tea. It is pricy but well worth it; so if any holiday comes up that involves present giving, my husband knows just what I want. This tea provides a wonderful jasmine aroma along with being full bodied. The morning seems brighter and calmer after a cup.
My smile appears just when I begin to brew Jasmine Pearls and when I pour and drink this doesn't disappoint--fragrant, full bodied and flavorful.
