I love jasmine green teas. There is something soothinig, calming, and safe about these teas. The flavors are typically on spot and they jst allow me to sink into my favorite spot on the couch and relax.
With my how crazy my work days have been, tea hasn’t been on the forefront of my mind lately. Shame on me because I have been neglecting a lot of amazing teas. . like this one. . .
The other day I was determined to have myself a cup of tea before my inbox became crazy. My hand instantly grabbed the sample of Jasmine Pearls from My Tea Guy. I prepped up water a bit under boiling, scooped a few pearls into my teapot and allowed the tea to steep for 3 minutes.
Jasmine Pearls from My Tea Guy was gorgeous, and full of marvelous floral flavor. The green tea flavors were perfect, being both a bit sweet and a bit vegetal. Combine that with the floral notes from the jasmine, you have yourself a glorious relaxing cuppa to enjoy the afternoon or evening with. What I loved the most was just how crisp the flavors were and how fresh the tea tasted.
Overall, Jasmine Pearls tea variety is a pretty standard tea that you can find at most tea shops. What makes this variety different than others is the fresh crispness in flavor this tea delivers cup after cup. I’ve had enjoyable jasmine pearls before but this is one of the better varieties. I ended up brewing up several infusions with the tea leaves and was incredibly happy with the results.
Here’s the scoop!

Our Jasmine Pearls are hand-rolled under the supervision of tea master LIN ZHENG KAN (The fourth generation tea family descendant). The spring picked tea leaves are hand-rolled into pearls and then dried until summer when they are blended with unopened jasmine flowers which bloom overnight, releasing their aroma into the tea. The flowers are then removed and the process is repeated several times.
