From the small rolled ‘pearls’, to how they sink to the bottom of your cup and slowly unfurl, to the light yet lush jasmine flavour – this is a beautiful tea from start to finish! Its also one of those teas that seem expensive up front, but as it stands up so well to multiple infusions I’d say it’d end up on par (or maybe cheaper) than a regular jasmine green. And much nicer too!
Brew this in a glass cup or teapot if you can, so you can watch the pearls do their thang!
