Oh my goodness this tea smells magical. Jasmine Phoenix Pearls are fragrant, hand-rolled jewels. As they are infused in the water they unfurl releasing their delicate scent and floral flavour. Very refreshing. I was reading somewhere that there are up to 14,000 pearls in a kilogram!
When Jasmine Pearls are on the tea menu I know I need not look further. Decision made. This is also my “go to” tea when I have had a busy day at work and need some tea to relax me. I usually get at least one or two re-brews out of them as long as I don’t leave them submerged in the water.
Like the Golden Monkey Tea this tea comes from the Fujian province, China.
In northern China it is customary to serve Jasmine tea as a welcoming gesture to guests, so why not start this tradition in your home and treat your guests and yourself?
