Tea & Flowers for Valentine's Day
Jasmine Pearls is a scented green tea from Fujian, China
Valentine's Day is the perfect time to show your loved ones how much you care. What better way to do it than with a gift of unique loose leaf teas touched by flowers? For centuries, flowers have been a symbol of love, representing beauty, grace and passion. However, unlike flowers, the joy of loose leaf tea is sure to last for a life time, so why not gift them an unforgettable tea experience to cherish. Here’s two floral teas with distinctive, single garden tastes worth sharing this Valentine’s Day.
You may have tried cheaper jasmine teas, usually served over-infused in restaurants to cut through salty dishes. These can be sickly sweet, oily and in some cases very bitter, having been infused with an essential oil that smells fantastic but tastes inauthentic. By comparison, these Jasmine Pearls are much more intense; crafted with hand-picked tea leaves from the mountains of Fujian, China, which are expertly fired and rolled to preserve their fresh and grassy flavour. They’re then hand-scented with real jasmine flowers for five consecutive nights to create an abundantly sweet fragrance and delicious floral taste. The perfect tea for a romantic dining experience, try it with any rich savoury food for balance or, go full indulgence and enjoy with a creamy dessert.
Here's our go to recipe for the perfect cup: 5g or 2tsp Jasmine Pearls per 250ml; 80˚C water; 3-minute infusion
Try our latest Jasmine Pearls Sparkling Tea, a lightly sparkling infusion crafted using our Jasmine Pearls for a refreshingly grown-up taste to celebrate in style with.
