From Teapigs

About this tea:
Inside this packet are little pearls of hand-rolled green tea tips which have been infused with pure jasmine flowers. This is done in the most delicate of ways – the leaves are just allowed to rest amongst the flowers to pick up their floral scent – jasmine tea doesn’t get any purer.

Seeped in water the leaves will unfurl from the jasmine pearl to reveal a whole leaf and a bud – surprisingly hypnotic viewing in my opinon.

These particular pearls are frequently called dragon phoenix pearls. Dragon Phoenix Pearl gets its name from the visual characteristics of the tea bushes “climbing” the hillsides like a dragon coming out of the water. Although I’ve seen these bushes climbing the hillside I’ve yet to see a dragon getting out of a bath so I can’t vouch for the accuracy of this claim, unfortunately.

naturally contains caffeine

very delicate green tea with a light, floral, refreshing, natural jasmine taste.

Try it:
naked… this tea alone, with hot water.

Good if you’re feeling:
In need of relaxation and detox.like all teas this is bursting with antioxidants, the good guys that help keep us young and healthy.

To buy our jasmine pearl tea online, select the quantity of loose leaf tea or tea temples you would like and then add to basket. If you are buying the loose leaf pack please note we’ve made a mistake on the making instructions on the pack. It should read 4-6 pearls per cup, not 4-6 rounded teaspoons. Whoops!

Pure green tea from the Fujian province in China infused in jasmine flowers.

Brewing Instructions:
One tea temple per person, infused in boiling water for at least 3 minutes. Sit back and watch the magic of the pearl.

Sipdown! Another one from the selection box done and dusted. I’ve reviewed this before, and I don’t really have anything earth shattering to add this time. It’s a nice, fragrant, delicate tea, perfect for afternoon sipping and frazzled nerves. Not one I’d keep around all the time, but nice to come back to every now and then.

A one of sample I ordered just to log this one. (Temperature and length was taken from the official website).

Colour: Very pale yellowy green
Smell: Fresh Jasmine

Sips tea What a lovely and refreshing example of a nice jasmine green this is, especially for pre bagged. Very fresh tasting and very much jasmine tasting but without bitterness or being too over the top. Green tea is not very strong but I like the subtleness of it all.

Even after half of the cup has gone it still tastes subtle and fresh and it’s super duper relaxing. :) Bliss in a cup.

Although enclosed in tea bags, this jasmine tea is not finely cut leaves, but fuller, high quality leaves that have been rolled into “pearls”. There are pros and cons to selling these quality pearls in teabags. Teabags are more accessible and inclusive to the average tea drinker, therefore less daunting than loose leaf, if one should fancy a change from the standard black tea. Therefore, these teabags are great for introducing newbies into the wonderful world of good quality tea. However, the teabag isn’t quite big enough to let the pearls fully unfurl and agonise without over steeping. Luckily though, you can actually buy this as loose leaf from the Teapigs website! They taste really good, with just a hint of green tea being detectable and a very strong, pungent jasmine flavour, that has an incredibly dry finish.

So I was v excited for this tea to come in the mail! I was sick a couple weeks ago and needed some peppermint tea, so I was all “What tea company have I not tried yet??” And Teapigs came to mind! Last I checked (like a year or so ago), Teapigs didn’t ship to the US. Well, they did but shipping costs were a pain. But then, I saw that they actually had the usual “spend $50 and shipping is free” deal!!! So yes. I got Teapigs and spent $50 on this, my peppermint, and a sampler pack just to get free shipping :)

This jasmine is okay?? I’m a huge fan of jasmine and so far the best jasmine I’ve ever had is David’s Butterfly Jasmine. This one seems a bit too week to my liking. An okay jasmine, but I prob wouldn’t repurchase. I’ll def try their other teas though! I have plenty more to try since I did get that sample pack :)

Sipdown! (15/203)

Another one I forgot to remove from my cupboard a while ago. If I’m remembering right, this was the first time I tried a jasmine tea, a flavour which I still love. Despite my usual indifference to/slight dislike of green tea, I can drink it all day when paired with jasmine. For now, I have a few better loose jasmine greens, but when I first tried this, it was mind-blowing to me. The jasmine isn’t so subtle the green tea overpowers it, but it also isn’t too strong that it’s offputting or perfume-like. A delicate and tasty match, overall. Possibly my favourite of the Teapigs teas I have tried.

I have a box of this, loose-leaf, and it really was the tea that turned me on to drinking leaf-tea.

I just love it. I’ve only had two other jasmine teas in my time, but this one is such an easy-brewing (and extremely forgiving), deliciously floral tea. It’s exactly what I want from a Jasmine Green.

It works well as a ‘mug’ tea with a basket (I tend to use a generous 1 – 1.5 tsp in ~300ml and brew it for two mins or so) or as a more refined, lots-of-short-steeps tea (again, I’ve used ~1 tsp in ~150ml and brewed for 30-45 s at a time). It does get very bitter if you oversteep, I should add, but this isn’t a problem I tend to encounter.

I love this as an everyday Jasmine tea. The jasmine is delicious and strong, without becoming cloying or excessive. And the green base that they use adds a really nice floral, fruity undertone that just rounds off this great, bargain tea.
