Our very popular good quality Jasmine white tea good for calming, relaxing, and high in antioxidant, low in caffeine. Tastes aromatic with jasmine flavor. Each of this pearl was individual hand rolled. Highly recommended for everyday drinking.

Not a review for drinking this tea, but rather for sort of cooking with it.

This was originally posted by Tealeaves. I have modified the directions quite a bit to make it very simple.

5 ounce log of goat cheese (chevre)
5-6 teaspoons green jasmine tea (obvs I used jasmine pearls from Vital Tea Leaf)

Grind tea leaves fine in food processor, coffee grinder (one without coffee smell – I use mine for herb grinding not ever for coffee) or even with a mortar & pestle in old-timey manner. Roll cheese log in ground leaves. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill overnight.

Serve on really mildly flavored rice crackers or something similar. Or with a savory rosemary scone. Original recipe suggested drizzling with melted orange marmalade, honey is equally good.

These jasmine pearls have a sweetness to them that I think helps complement the sourness of the cheese. I don’t know how well this would go with a more floral jasmine. But I’ll try eventually. :)

Sounds yum!

Evol Ving Ness

Indeed. Delicious.

Fjellrev

Nice idea!

I am going to experiment with some other teas as well. It turned out much better than anticipated. I thought the tea leaves would be dry and prickly and throw off the texture, but after sitting overnight and especially the 2nd day, the moisture in the chevre had really softened them up and the jasmine started to flavor the cheese as well as the tea.

Evol Ving Ness

Mmm, even better.

This is my ever day tea while I’m at work. I find it very light and enjoyable to sip on while I work. I usually pop 2 of them in a cup of hot water and slowly refill it throughout the afternoon. The first three steeps are probably the best.

I picked this bag up from Vital about 2 years ago while I was in SF.
