Connoisseur grade, hand-rolled, jasmine white tea
Jasmine blossoms are picked during the heat of the day, when the flowers are closed tight. The scenting is done in the cool of the evening when the blossoms open, releasing their intoxicating scent. The blossoms are heaped in piles next to the drying tealeaves, which absorb the fragrance of the jasmine. This process is repeated up to seven times for the most prized jasmine teas such as this Organic Jasmine Pearl. It is important to use fresh, cold water (use reverse osmosis, low mineral water) that has a high oxygen content with white teas - particularly teas of single estate varietal. Best drunk in the morning, when your palate is fresh.
As a Chinese tea drinker living in Hong Kong, I have experience with many different teas available to me here. This is my first experience with Organic Jasmine Pearl (OJP), and my first tasting has given me a most positive experience. I like most the “mouth feel” of the tea, which is that of a green tea but much more tantalizing. Another good touch is the way the leaves come in a ball and unfurls I hot water, reminding me of several Chinese “flower” teas I’ve had where the dried flower opens up in hot water when brewing. Good job Tealeaves! Waiting to taste your Four Seasons Hong Kong Blend for a comparison.
My favorite. A must have for me.
I have had jasmine pearl tea years ago when travelling abroad, and had a dream to find another tea like it. This is it! A dreamy floral that takes me to a garden and brings total relaxation.
