I generally find Silver Needle just a little too mild for my liking, but I love these. The jasmine accent sets off this delicate tea beautifully, and I love watching the pearls unfurl in my glass tea pot.
Jasmine Dragon Pearls
Possibly the most popular white tea in Australia, Jasmine Dragon Pearls are beautiful hand-rolled Jasmine scented tea pearls made of Silver Needle young white tea leaves.
Jasmine Dragon Pearls are also known as Downy Pearls and Buddha Tears. Watch the tea pearls slowly uncurl itself – beautiful to watch and a nice light cup for anytime of the day. Each pearl is about 0.5cm diameter, use roughly 1 small teaspoonful of pearls per cup (about 6 pearls). Fantastic tea to take to work without fuss!
If you like Chinese green tea such as the Green tea with Jasmine, you will love this white tea!
Ingredients: White tea (Camellia Sinensis), jasmine
