About Jasmine Pearls

Small round balls made up of rolled-up tea leaves, silvery-golden to gray-green in colorA typical example of jasmine pearls, showing a more silvery color than most jasmine green teas.
Jasmine pearls, often called jasmine dragon pearls, is a type of jasmine tea, tea scented with jasmine blossoms, in which the leaves are tightly wound into small, round "pearls". Jasmine pearls tend to be silvery in color, which is a function of the leaves they are made out of and not anything having to do with the way they are packaged. When brewed, the jasmine pearls unfurl.

The tea used as a base for jasmine pearls tends to be more delicate and higher quality than the base tea for regular jasmine tea. This is due to the fact that the extra work involved in creating the pearls would make it uneconomical to use lower-grade tea.

Like regular jasmine tea, jasmine pearls can be made out of different types of tea, but they tend to be made out of white teas more often than the plain jasmine teas. Silver needle white tea is a favorite base tea for jasmine pearls.

Although Jasmine tea could be viewed as a blooming tea because each individual pearl unfurls into a flower-like shape, we classify it as a loose tea because typically, a spoonful of pearls is required to brew a single cup. We reserve the categorization of blooming tea for large blooms that brew one or more cups of tea with a single piece.

Lovely jasmine pearl tea. The hand rolled pearls open gently as it brews. The taste is delicate—not as grassy or as floral as a few of the other jasmine greens out there. Nice tea that is smooth and easily drinkable.

An amazing tea, somewhat soapy(probably due to steeping error), but the taste is excellent, and it smells amazing, but that is typical of a jasmine tea. This tea is very expensive, and I didn't see much improvement over other jasmine pearls.

I received this tea as part of a tea trade(4 ounces of this) for free, and am really enjoying this. I'd say it tastes very similar to Harney and sons' jasmine pearls with a slightly less dominant jasmine taste. The aroma is amazing and is almost purely jasmine. The flavor is sweet and of jasmine but can turn bitter/soa...

This is by far the best tea I have tasted. It has a smooth, delicate jasmine aroma without the bitterness. It piques my senses. Has a regal, elegant taste and doesnt cling to the palette. Blends well with fruit teas like mango and other citrus fruit.
