Leaf Type:  Green

Where to Buy:  Yezi Tea

Tea Description:

This exquisite organic green tea is harvested in the city of Fuzhou in the famed Fujian province of China. Mo Li Hua is sold as a mix of carefully oxidized green-tea leaves and fragrant jasmine flowers.

Jasmine is the municipal flower of Fuzhou—and for good reason. The citizens of Fuzhou know that there are fewer sensations more rejuvenating than the fragrance of jasmine flowers wafting through their windows on evenings ideal for quiet contemplation. Now you, too, can enjoy this carefully handcrafted loose-leaf green tea. Be sure to note how, as soon as the Mo Li Hua leaves come into contact with water, they expand into exquisite floral patterns, further accentuating the goodness of the brew.

Taster’s Review:

I love jasmine pearls!  And these Jasmine Pearls Mo Li Hua Green Tea from Yezi Tea are some of the finest I’ve tried.  The aroma is captivating, and the flavor … amazing.  And drinking jasmine teas is always a treat for me … not just because I love jasmine, but it also means that I get to get out my Yixing mug.  It’s Jasmine time!

The leaves have been carefully wound into small pellets, and these “pearls” slowly unfurl to release their flavor.  It’s fun to watch them do their elegant dance in the hot water, so if you have a glass gaiwan … you should use it to brew this tea!

This is a lovely jasmine tea.  The jasmine is not nearly as strong in flavor as the fragrance suggests.  It is a highly aromatic tea:  both the dry leaf and the brewed tea emit an outstanding bouquet.  But the flavor of the jasmine is soft and smooth … not at all perfume-y.  It is beautifully exotic and feminine without tasting like a bar of soap from one of those luxury bath stores in the mall.

The green tea is sweet and it has a delicate taste that is a perfect complement to the subtle taste of the jasmine flower.  There is no sharpness and very little astringency here.  It’s just a pleasure to sip, from start to finish.

Yet another amazing tea from Yezi Tea … I’m really impressed with this company thus far!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
