From Whittard of Chelsea

Jasmine Dragon Pearls make an exquisite green tea infused with the sweet scent of jasmine. Light and refreshing, it is a great tea for drinking throughout the day.

Jasmine Dragon Pearls are hand-rolled ‘pearls’ of the youngest silver tips and buds of green tea. These are then layered with whole jasmine flowers, picked at dusk when the blooms’ scent is most intense, and left to absorb their heady flavour overnight. A Gold winner at the Great Taste Awards in 2012, the judges loved it, saying it had “Good liquour, good colour and good jasmine.”

Jasmine Dragon Pearls Tea is an easy drinking tea that leaves you wanting more. Traditionally you can keep topping up a pot of this tea up to five times and still savour it’s glorious flavour.

Brewed well, this tea is a delight. Sweet, delicate jasmine flavour over a slightly tart green tea. However, it’s very easy to brew it so one or other flavour dominates, which can spoil the experience somewhat.

I found that a level teaspoon of tea – 20-22 of the pearls – is ideal for the amount I brew, about 250ml. Much more and the jasmine can become cloying. Like many delicate teas, this can be brewed a couple of times. The first brew I do for slightly longer, to give the leaves time to unfurl – 3.5 to 4 minutes, anything longer and the bitterness of the tea takes over. The second brew needs a minute or so less.
