Jasmine Dragon Pearls make an exquisite green tea infused with the sweet scent of jasmine. Light and refreshing, it is a great tea for drinking throughout the day.
Jasmine Dragon Pearls are hand-rolled 'pearls' of the youngest silver tips and buds of green tea. These are then layered with whole jasmine flowers, picked at dusk when the blooms' scent is most intense, and left to absorb their heady flavour overnight. A Gold winner at the Great Taste Awards in 2012, the judges loved it, saying it had "Good liquor, good colour and good jasmine."
Jasmine Dragon Pearls Tea is an easy drinking tea that leaves you wanting more. Traditionally you can keep topping up a pot of this tea up to five times and still savour it's glorious flavour.
Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and use freshly drawn water which is heated to around 80 degrees. You can either pour the water before it reaches boiling point or allow the water to sit for a few minutes afterwards. Allow to brew for 2-3 minutes according to taste. Should be drunk without milk.
Although this tea is really the best I have tasted in a long time,but do you really expect us to travel to the nearest Whittards shop from Brighton to Bromley each time to collect 1 packet of tea. Whittards are you mad!!
WHY NO SHOP IN BRIGHTON!! WE are the capital of the SOUTH.
Smooth, sweet and calming

By far the best green tea I have had. One cup only needs one pearl which unravels as it absorbs the water. There is no bitterness which is usually a tone of other green teas.
It's a price worth paying!

As a jasmine lover, I adore this tea. The taste is so good, you can brew it twice, the aroma is lasting. Totally worth the spicy price. Enjoy!
