Jasmine Pearl tea is your new best friend. 💚🌿

History

The use of fresh jasmine flowers to scent green tea is estimated to date back to the South-Song Dynasty in China during the thirteenth century. Although green, black, and white teas are scented with jasmine, green tea remains the most popular. Jasmine Pearl tea was originally reserved as a drink for the Emperor, and is still known in some markets as “Emperor’s Tea” today.

Summary

Jasmine pearls are hand-rolled from early spring, high elevation tea harvests. These individually made pearls are then dried and scented with fresh night-blooming jasmine blossoms to create a singular flavor that is exquisitely floral, delicate, and sweet. 

Why We love It

This tea is the closest you’ll find to pure joy in beverage form. The floral aroma and sweet grassy flavor are so uplifting and so delightful they can turn around even the glummest of mornings and make a good day even better. The pearls can be brewed in a short, hot infusion, or cold brewed overnight for a light and refreshing iced tea . 

From our staff herbalist:

Combine with roses, chamomile, and a dab of honey to lighten your heart and lift your spirits.
