From T2

One of our most famous and highly-prized teas, Buddha’s Tears provides contemplation of the divine. Made from a series of unopened tender white pekoe buds and young leaves hand-rolled into a sphere. Each tear gracefully unfurls and dances in the water, gradually releasing a sublime and refined flavour. A delicate and beautifully light infusion, flavour builds upon each sip, filling the mouth with an ethereal jasmine aroma. A meditation on heavenly art and a sensory treat to savour.

This tea is also known as Jasmine Pearls.

Divine tea … subtle, clean taste and gorgeous jasmine aroma. My only complaint is that I find the recommendation of 2/4 balls per cup way too weak. I’ve just made a cup (quite a large cup, admittedly) with 10 balls and it still tastes too weak!

I had read good things about this tea online, but was put off by the high cost. Then yesterday I was lucky enough to try this tea thanks to my dad’s partner having a sample in her cupboard.

I love how the little buds unfurl right there in the cup. The flavour was very light – we used 3 buds as they recommended 2-4, but I enjoyed it. We did use boiling water though, as we don’t have a tea thermometer, but it didn’t make the flavour bitter for me.

Thinking about it, I realised 100g of these little buds will go a long way with me using 3 per cup, so I took the plunge and put in an order from T2!
