A rare tea produced by hand rolling green tea buds and silvery tips into a tight, pearl shape. The hand-rolled tea is then scented repeatedly with jasmine, creating a wonderfully fragrant bouquet. Upon brewing, each pearl unfurls to show the tender tea leaves. This is one of rarest tea offerings.
Brewing Tips: Our Downy Pearl Jasmine tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a point just short of boiling (190-200° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Downy Pearl Jasmine tea should be steeped for 3-4 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!

My favorite way to start every day. I first discovered Jasmine Pearls at an imported tea shop in Chinatown in Manhattan, and I have been in love with it ever since. The aroma and the lift it gives me sets my mood to purely happy. This version of it never fails to remind me of that first time.
When I feel like something light and flowery, this is just the tea. The scent of Jasmine fills the kitchen when ever I brew a pot. It seems to be a favorite of guests.
I drink this at work almost all day. The first cup in the morning is so light and sweet. Not perfumey in the least. The leaves are still fragrant after they completely unfurl. I adore jasmine tea and this is the best I've had.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take for my order to ship?
We strive to ship orders within 2-3 days of receipt. However, due to the handcrafted nature of our products, combined with inventory limitations, some orders may take longer to ship. If there is a significant delay in shipping your order, we will contact you directly with details.
Are your teas cultivated naturally? Are they Organic?
All our teas are sourced from tea estates, suppliers and importers that we have personally worked with for decades and many for generations! We only purchase teas that have been cultivated naturally, devoid of pesticides and growth agents.
Teas that have the term “Organic” in the products name have gone through additional certification by the country or origin and USFDA. Even though all our products are natural, we are unable to list them as Organic unless they have gone through these steps. Sometimes, this certification can be costly and time consuming for growers. Each country has different regulations, so many sell the teas to us without this extra labeling.
How long does tea stay fresh?
If sealed properly and stored away from extreme hot/cold temps and moisture, tea will stay as flavorful as the day you bought it, even after 18 months.
How long should I brew my tea?
Tea brewing times and water temperature can vary between tea varieties. Please consult this link to find the best method for your tea!
