I must really be happy with me today, because not only did I have Norbu Oolong tea, but I’m treating myself to some Jasmine Pearls.

Now, a little explanation – these are “custom” because, well, I get my jasmine pearls from various sources. There are some perks to being a tea purveyor. Anyways… as I haven’t really found much difference from brand to brand, I just keep them in my pretty little washi paper tin, combining them as I get them… and to be honest, I really don’t know which source(s) I received these from.

Anyways, until I find the “perfect” pearl – if it exists – a pearl is a pearl is a pearl… and all are equally lovely in my eyes.

When it comes to pearls, I have found that a moderately low temperature and extended brewing time works wonders.

The flavor is amazing. Jasmine. Smooth, delicious, sweet green tea leaves, delicate in flavor. Sweet, floral jasmine tantalizing my palate. Delightful.

Good idea! Now that you made this listing, I may use it as well once I try each one separately once. Do you combine pearls of different sizes/types?

LiberTEAS

Well, most jasmine pearls (green tea pearls) I’ve come across are basically the same size, or vary only slightly, so I combine the pearls I receive from my various sources. They might call them jasmine pearls, or jasmine pheonix tears or jasmine dragon thing-a-ma-bobs, or whatever, but basically, I’ve found no real difference between one company’s jasmine pearls and another company’s jasmine pearls. And I do try them before I combine them… to see if there is a difference… because I am searching for the perfect pearl. However, these… are very, very close to perfection.

Jillian

If you want a good jasmine pearl, Harney & Sons’ Dragon Pearl Jasmine is excellent IMO, and I’ve heard a lot of people rave about Samovar’s Jasmine Pearl Green.

Cofftea

I’ve only had oolong pearls… combining them w/ green pearls (which is what I meant by “type”), might be kinda interesting.

LiberTEAS

Cofftea: No, I haven’t combined Oolong pearls with green pearls. By Oolong pearls are you referring to the rolled “greener” Oolong leaves?

Cofftea

I’m refering to oolongs like Adagio’s Jasmine #12.

LiberTEAS

Ah…yes, that is definitely a pearl… although I haven’t tried it – I imagine it’s a bit larger than a green pearl. I think I must try this one the next time I place an order with adagio. I do love jasmine Oolongs… this one sounds right up my alley.

Cofftea

The jasmine pearls (also oolong) in the maestro collection are quite tiny.

SoccerMom

LiberTEAS, I have a sampler tin of jasmine #12 if you’d like it I could send it to you?

Cofftea

Take her up on it LiberTEAS, it’s yummy!

SoccerMom

I must warn you both I have an ulterior motive.:) I want to send her another Oolong my favorite oolong ever and see if LiberTEAS has ever tried one similar and if SO what she knows about it. I buy mine locally and the shop owner doesn’t tell me much about it (I think she just orders it and doesn’t know much about it).

LiberTEAS

SoccerMom: I’d appreciate that a great deal! And I’d be happy to try your oolong and see if there is one similar. Is there something I can send you in exchange?

Mmmmmmmmmmm! I got jasmine pearls from Stephanie from an unknown source. I am a sucker for jasmine tea. This one was very light. But not bitter what so ever. The jasmine strength was perfect! Watching these little guys steep was so amazing. They were so pretty as they opened. Not only is this a tasty tea but an entertaining one too ha ha.
Thank you for this sample!

Stephanie

I don’t remember where I got those particular pearls, heh. Glad you enjoyed!
