Jasmine Phoenix Pearls|茉莉鳳眼

Tasting notes: Bright, delicate, jasmine

A light, refreshing tea with an unforgettable aroma, Jasmine Phoenix Pearls require a lot of work, skill and time to produce. It is essentially a green tea infused with jasmine flowers.

Once the blossoms are harvested, they are sorted by hand and laid out on bamboo baskets.

Green tea leaves are layered with the fresh jasmine blossoms and left overnight to absorb the essential oils. The blossoms are then separated out from the tea leaves by hand and fresh blossoms are layered in. This entire process is repeated seven to nine times over 14 days.

After the tea has absorbed the desired level of aroma, it is then painstakingly hand-rolled into almond-shaped balls which slowly open up during infusion.

This traditional craft goes back generations and requires a great deal of expertise to master. Only the Tea Master knows when it’s time to move to the next stage, through sight, smell and touch.

As with most green teas, it’s best to avoid boiling water with this one. We recommend a gentle 80°C to prevent the tea becoming bitter, astringent or too perfumy. For a stronger flavour, try adding in more tea or steeping for a longer time.

Pro-tip: You can rinse the tea with hotter water first to speed up the unfurling process and get a stronger first infusion.

These are just guidelines. As we always say, it’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.
