Not quite what the name implies, these leaves aren’t actually pearls at all. They’re light whispy dark green leaves with plenty of visual character. The aroma is light and vegetal, smooth and savory. Hints of fresh spinach with the sweetness of steamed bok choy.

When you brew this tea, you get a clear yellow liquor with an aroma that’s pleasant but lacking in additional subtleties compared to its dry counterpart. This isn’t necessarily bad though. Predictability and consistency are the stalwarts of perfection.

The flavor is light and thin at first, but seems to gain weight through the sip. There’s no astringency here. Instead, you’re presented with a very smooth brew. Overtones of steamed bok choy take the forefront while hints of a buttery sweetness seem to pop in and out.

Insane about tea and technology!

Born in Maryland in a suburb of D.C. humorously named “Chevy Chase” I moved to Cincinnati as a… wait… you don’t want to read this crap!

My tea birth came in 2004. While I had been drinking tea throughout my life it was more of a seasonal enjoyment and not something as empassioned as what it gives me now.

I’m currently working to start a couple tea related businesses and run a little tea blog reviewing tea and tea related items.

You should drop by! Seriously! The door’s open!
