Jasmine Pearls

茉莉龙珠绿茶

This well-loved tea begins its life in China's Fujian province. The freshest spring buds and young leaves are picked to produce a high quality green tea, which is hand-rolled into individual pearls, ready for scenting. Come early summer, the pearls are carefully transported to Guangxi province, where they are placed onto bamboo mats and laid with fresh jasmine flowers repeatedly for five nights. This meticulous process imbues each pearl with a deeply floral aroma, a sweet, honey-like liquor and a long-lasting finish.

  • Cultivar - Fuding Da Bai Hao
  • Picked - Spring
  • Oxidisation level - 0%

    Smooth and bright green tea lifted by fragrant, long-lasting jasmine.

    Superb

    For many years I have been buying Jasmine Pearls and Jasmine Silver Needle from Jing and they are, without doubt, the best teas that I have ever tasted. I have tried many Jasmine Teas over the years and these seem to have the perfect balance. I only buy from Jing having been disappointed with other brands.

    Perfect balance

    A good balance between the green tea and the jasmine. I have experienced others where the mixture is too heavy on jasmine but not this one; the best I have ever tried! I also love the pearls shape which makes it so easy to measure and dispense.

    Love it!

    Earlier this year I became lactose intolerant and have been trying to find since then a perfect green tea - well I have to look no further. Having tried many different green teas this is my absolute favourite, it has a wonderful jasmine flavour without being overpowering, it has a lovely clear colour instead of the muddy sludge of some supermarket brands and I would not hesitate to recommend it. I am not an expert on green tea but I can tell quality when I drink it. Buy and enjoy!

    Gorgeous cuppa

    in my opinion, these are the best jasmine pearls you can buy in the UK, the jasmine flavour is not overpowering and it makes a lovely cup of tea. Like others I have found a little goes a long way, I brew in the cup (using a strainer) and find about 10 pearls makes 2/3 cups - perfect to get me through the afternoon without feeling sleepy.

    Use sparingly

    Wonderful natural flavour, but use sparingly (I find just a few pearls in each brew, 5/6, sufficient ... way less than a spoon full) or the jasmine can be overpowering, at least for me.

    come sit under the jasmine tree....

    and savour a pearly queen of a tea! despite the abundance of jasmine teas on the market today, JING was my first and will be my last. like a fine perfume, it's smooth yet potent. I've found it to be a wonderful introduction to the world of green tea for those who are wary.

    Delicate and delightful!

    Easily the best jasmine tea I've ever had. The flavour is subtle and refreshing, and the tea is of good enough quality that you can re-steep several times provided you remove the tea from the water. Excellent value for money, highly recommended.

    Jasmine tea

    Jing is my fav place to buy tea leafs. Everything is quality. Once you drink tea from Jing you can really tell the difference when you try other tea leafs from other places! I had to return to Jing because I could not seem to find another place better than Jing! I love their Jasmine tea! It is my fav and no where does it better!

    The best tea ever!!

    This has got to be my favourite green tea blend off all time. It smells devine and tastes even better. Even on the 3rd brew it still tastes fantastic. Perfect anytime of the day, but the mid afternoon cup the perfect way to get over the mid afternoon lull. I can't rate this enough. Anyone new to green tea, really should try this !st, youll never look back!

    Smells, Tastes & Looks Amazing!

    I was thrilled to discover these Jasmine Dragon Pearls. They make a tea that is a real treat for the senses. it's such a fresh and clean taste, very refreshing, and the fragrance is enticing to anyone who may be nearby :) I love watching the pearls unfold into a garden at the bottom of my cup. The subtle changes to the flavour that occur with multiple infusions are part of the charm of this incredible tea. Try some.

    The Best Jasmine Tea I have found outside of China!

    I have been buying this for a few months now, the result of a lucky search on the internet! It is incredibly hard to find affordable jasmine pearls. I started drinking green tea many years ago and became hooked on jasmine pearls during two years living in China. These are simply the best I've found in this country, refreshing and fragrant. I tend to just add some balls to a cup and pour water on and keep re-using them, adding a few more balls every so often but I have just bought a infusing teapot to try instead! Thank you Jing for a lovely tea but also a very fast and efficient service!

    Perfect Jasmine tea

    I first tasted Jasmine tea in a small Chinese teashop in Bristol in 1983. Since then I have been looking for the perfect Jasmine tea - light, floral, slightly heady. This is TOTALLY IT!!

    Hooked

    Never thought I'd get hooked on tea, but Jing Tea has made me crave it with their Jasmine Pearls. The more I drink, the better I feel (any mysterious ingredients we should know about?). I recommend it warmly.

    A Real Taste of China!

    I visited China 5 years ago and have drunk Jasmine Tea ever since then as a result of that visit! It has not been until I discovered Jing's Jasmine Pearls that I could compare the tea bought here to what I had experienced back in Beijing! Totally delicious and by FAR the best Jasmine Pearl Tea I have ever tasted. Thank you so much!

    The best jasmine tea Ive ever had

    My introduction to good green teas came from Twinings, but frankly, since I got a tea sampler from JING, I am hooked on this jasmine tea. Beautiful, delicate but intensely floral, it is arguably a tea that should be a staple in any household, and any restaurant that has such teas in its arsenal.The little pearls may look strange, but they soon unfold in the hot water and give off the most amazing taste and scent. don't steep for too long, enjoy it while it is at its best.

    Truly Mind Blowing Introduction to real tea.

    I'm overwhelmed by the scent and balanced taste of the Jasmine Pearl tea from Jing. Being a noobie to green teas, I first tried supermarket tea bags, then loose leaf... and then after reading some reviews here, I plumped for a mixture of the range of green tea.If you are thinking of buying some - don't hesitate... it truly is an amazing experience.I'm unsure if Jing advise re-use, however I use a coffee pot and ensure the water is just enough for one cup. I can brew this 3 times with equally balanced flavour and aroma... which MUST make this tea somewhat of a bargain at this price for 50g (if you x3)!!Lovely brew, relaxing experience - go on, indulge your senses!:)Stu

    The best jasmine tea

    This is one of the best jasmine scented teas I ever tasted. Its aroma and taste are mild and pleasant, so you can use a few degrees higher water temperature if you prefer stronger and full taste. Steep until pearls unravel into open tealeaves, make a second infusion a little shorter. 3 minutes as declared by Jing is absolutely too much if you intend to prepare multiple infusions.

    jasmine

    I was introduced to jing a couple of years ago after mentioning to a friend a growing interest in Chinese teas. One of the very first ones I tried was the jasmine pearls. I had tried a few other jasmine teas and found a lot of them quite bitter but this one was very smooth , it seemed to be in a gear above the rest. I find this tea so enjoyably fresh and aromatic and serves me very well as a staple part of my morning. It definately awakened me to a new style of tea, and as I continue to discover and enjoy teas I salute this one for bringing me into the world. thank you jing!
