Description

The use of Jasmine tea can be traced back to when it was being transported through the Silk Road when the Song dynasty reigned, and considered to be an art in the eastern Fujian Province for years. The Premium Pearl Jasmine uses spring-harvested tea sprigs, a premium-grade tea that is identified by its white-tipped buds, and often mistaken for white tea. Each Premium Pearl Jasmine is made by rolling a sprig of two tea leaves with an unopened bud to form its signature pearl form, and then processed as green tea. It is then infused with real jasmine blossoms, so that the soothing scent lingers long after than as with teas that use artificial flavoring.

Taste, appearance, aroma of the tea

The Jasmine pearls come complete with a fat rounded bud and hand-rolled dainty tea leaves. They are less likely to break than their flaky leaf-shaped counterparts, and offer more infusion play options, as the pearl takes longer to infuse. The Pearl Jasmine buds unfold beautifully when they come in touch with water, and the subtle floral scent of the jasmine infusion gradually takes over to indulge your taste buds and senses. The light-colored medium bodied brew is a delight to the eyes and the taste buds.

Health benefits of the tea

The Premium Pearl Jasmine brings the traditional benefits of green tea such as boosts the metabolic rate, stimulates the brain (without the side effects caused by caffeine), lowers cancer risk (due to anti-oxidants), and improves brain functionality. The jasmine blend in the concoction promotes natural detoxification, reduces stress, alleviates depression and reduces risk of cancer.

Preparation

Westen-style steeping

  • uses large teapots (500ml or bigger)
  • uses a large quantity of water and a small quantity of tea
  • time in the water for the tea is long – steep times of 2-5 minutes depending on the tea
  • some teas can be successfully be re-steeped but the taste will be thin and light due to the large amount of water used in this method
  1. Warm the pot with hot water and discard.
  2. Add water of approximately 85⁰C, or between 75⁰C. – 85⁰C/167°F – 185°F.

  • uses a small quantity of water and a large quantity of tea
  • time in the water for the tea is very short – steep times are 30 seconds to 1 minute
  • tea is re-steeped multiple times to reveal a different facet of flavor each time. Flavor will be rich in dimension and very full bodied due to the ratio of tea to water

    This is by far the best jasmine pearl I have tried and I have tried so many… The freshest young buds picked at their most tender under ideal conditions and dried perfectly then scented several times so they are gloriously full of jasmine scent and flavour. Every other time I have purchased jasmine pearl elsewhere I have been disappointed it just doesn’t compare to this jasmine pearl – not even close. Other tea sellers sell tea that is revealed (when unrolled to be tough older leaves that are often too oxidized from the wet conditions and that have only been scented a couple of times). When you do a side comparison with this real top quality jasmine pearl you’ll see that almost every other jasmine pearl Is pretty much garbage compared to this one. TeaCanvas is the most honest and excellent tea seller I’ve ever come across – everything is of the very finest quality and that’s very very hard to find in a tea seller… Often they figure most customers won’t know the difference but not at Tea Canvas – if they say it’s premium and top quality you know you are getting the very best teas in the world.
