From Zen Tea

This Jasmine tea uses fine young buds from the Dai Ba or Big White Trees of Fuding, Fujian China. Pure fresh jasmine flowers are added to the tea and through seven levels of heat processing, the tea is infused with the delicate scent of the night-blooming jasmine flowers. This production process yields a fragrant and refreshing tea that offers a lingering floral note with a sweet after taste. When added to water, the pearls majestically unfurl, releasing their delicate scent and flavor. While not cheap, this tea is well worth the experience.

Price: $19 / 100g

2 steeps of this yesterday, for some reason the 2nd didn’t turn out as good as it usually does. I love this tea, but I hate messing around with temperatures.

Just made a Zen Tea order :D this tea, OF COURSE (because I only had a small pack last time) and a few caffeine free things (because I only have 2 that I LOVE right now, & something must be done about that!) >:D

Nice! I just bought a few rooibos/honeybush things from Della Terra Teas because of the same thing! Those Dragon Pearls sound interesting. I think I’ll order from Zen Tea sometime too. I need more coconut oolong!

Ozli

I’m putting some of both into the mail for you on Monday! :D :D

Ozli

You should prob see your package on Wed/Thurs! :D

Cavocorax

“some” is used pretty loosely! Those packs were pretty big!

Ozli

oh yeah, because i knew i was getting more jasmine pearls ANY DAY and because i can take or leave the oolong, but you love it. :D

Cavocorax

Note to self/others: do not cold steep in the fridge. Or, if you do, don’t use many pearls.

This is undrinkable.

OMGsrsly

Tastes like soap? :)

Ozli

Hahaha good to know as I love this tea and probably would have tried it cold eventually… :D

The unfurling of the dragon pearls from this Jasmine green tea from Zen Tea was a joy to behold! The leaves are whole, and they just kept unraveling, until at last each pearl (I used 10) was completely unrolled and fully extended. In fact, the leaves are so long that I was able to fish them out, rather than using a sieve to remove them.

The liquor is pale greenish yellow, and mixed in with the green tea leaves were full-on jasmine petals. A very nice tea—the flavor is lightly floral but also slightly sweet from the green leaves. I am looking forward to the second steep!

Thank you DigniTea for sending some of these precious pearls! I usually love Zen (I actually just placed a smaller order yesterday because they have the best sales…and because I was sleepordering. Whoops. Also, the book I’m reading at the moment ‘The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing’ is fantastic. ) Zen suggests one teaspoon at 176-195 degrees for 2 1/2 minutes.

Steep #1 // 25 mins after boiling // 2 1/2 min steep
Oh I feel like I’ve had this exact tea before somehow but I love this! (They might be Ovation’s pearls… I’ll have to try them again soon.) The jasmine is so sweet it is on the verge of tasting like bubblegum to me. I remember a jasmine tea that did this before. The jasmine takes front and center, even though it doesn’t seem like a strong jasmine to me, more sweet than floral – the green tea itself stays in the background. It’s very nice!

Steep #2 // 20 min after boiling // 3 min
This cup was still delicious but it had a slight tinge of the overbrewed-green-tea flavor. A little brisk. Still plenty of jasmine flavor though. If you’re looking for jasmine pearls, these are those. Tea tea tea. Tea.
