Jasmine Phoenix Pearls:
Very much like the more expensive Jasmine Dragon Tears. However, sometimes the jasmine leaves are mixed in with the pearls.
Use one pearl per ounce of water. No infuser, required if you separate the pearls from the jasmine leaves by hand. Use freshly boiled water and steep for about 3 minuets. The pearls will open into large tea leaves that stay at the bottom of your cup. When your cup is half full, refill it with hot water. You can refill your cup over and over again.
Jasmine Phoenix Pearls are perfumy, hand-rolled jewels of tea from Fuding, in Fujian province, China. Any fan of jasmine tea should try this specially crafted wonder. When added to hot water, Jasmine Phoenix Pearls majestically unfurl, releasing their delicate scent and flavor. Also known as 'Jasmine Dragon Pearls', their liquor is sweet and almost sugary. Very soft, airy mouthfeel. The delicate quality of the flavor is due in part to the leaves used to produce this tea: two tender, tiny new leaves and one plump unopened leaf bud. Younger leaves will yield softer flavor.
Steep at 195° for 2-3 minutes.
