Learn More: Jasmine pearls, also known as Jasmine Dragon Pearls, is a green tea that originated in the Fujian Province of China. Traditional jasmine tea is made from fresh Pouchong leaves that are picked in the early spring and then stored until late summer when fresh jasmine flowers are in bloom. The jasmine tea is then hand-rolled to form pearls. The resulting flavor of jasmine tea is subtly sweet, highly fragrant and is perfect for multiple infusions. Be careful of cheap imitations! There are many grades of Jasmine Pearls that are of lower quality tea and craftsmanship. These will look dull, a bit rough, and less tightly rolled. While less expensive, you can really taste the difference.
