type: green

origin: china

region: fujian uji

ingredients: green tea jasmine

caffeine: medium

price level: $$$$

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°F for 2-3 minutes

      adore jasmine tea, and like the story about the zen priests and it helping them stay up to meditate... these pearls make it extra pretty too

      Probably the best jasmine I've tasted. Not perfumy at all. Smooth. Nice with honey.

      The leaves of this are great. But the jasmine flakes are kind of soupy and too strong in flavor.

    • 

      There are good and better jasmines. Again you have to be careful with this or else you will wind up drinking perfume. Just a few pearls will do per cup and it’s a nice lovely cuppa.

    • 

      This tea smells amazing! Reminds me of walking through a botanical garden. I love the scent of jasmine, and this tea doesn't hold back!

      Bonus is that it's a rolled green - those are so interesting to watch unfurl as they steep! Make sure you give them enough room!

      The combo of the scent and the sight of the tea unfurling is a very relaxing, mesmerizing experience, for me at least.

      Unfortunately that's where the bulk of my enjoyment ends. While I love the scent of jasmine, I am not the biggest fan of their flavors. I can handle an accent of florals here and there, but ones of this strength are not for me.

      My favorite floral tea! The jasmine isn't a punch to the face like other jasmine teas have been for me. It's delicate enough to be complex without being too subtle. It doesn't really leave you wanting more but that's only because it delivers exactly the amount of floral flavors and aromas you want in a jasmine.

      I don't normally choose flowery teas, but this one is wonderful - it was a pleasant surprise for me! The floral flavor isn't too perfumy or bitter. It kind of has a sweet taste to it - it's hard to describe. And for a green tea, it wasn't bitter or biting! I'm so glad I got to try this one!

    • 

      I really enjoyed this green tea. Steeped at the recommended 180 degrees for 2 1/2 minutes, it tastes just like munching on the walls of grandmother's house, very perfume-y. Yes, this is a good thing!

    • 

      Very nice, smooth green tea with aromatic jasmine. I really liked the tea, and enjoyed three infusions.

      Soft and buttery tasting tea. Simple yet elegant enough to serve at a tea party.

      This is the 1st tea I’ve ever had and I loved watching the pearls unroll. The aroma is amazing. I love the flavor. This is one of my go to teas of all times. I don’t add any sweeteners it’s just perfect

      Some of the best Jasmine tea out there. Depending on your brewing method, these a so fun to watch unfurl as it steeps. The flavor is smooth and flowery without being overpowering.

    • 

      Really lovely and fragrant tea. Make sure to not oversteep. I've found that using hot but not boiling water is the best

    • 

      Sweet, pillowy, and fragrant. I love watching the pearls unfurl!

      The most floral jasmine tea that I've ever tried, its like drinking a bouquet.

      To me this is one of the better green teas. It had a good floral taste and smell. Mixes good with peppermint for a twist on a Morroccan Tea.

      This was a nice green tea. I really like the jasmine.

      It’s a very smooth cup I’ll give it that but god it’s so floral that it tastes like perfume and I just can not drink it

      Amazing tea. Very fragrant and pleasant. I love the jasmine scent added to the tea. So delicate

      My favorite jasmine tea i've tried. Delicious soft taste great with a small amount of honey.

    • 

      Not for me; this tea was in a sample pack and I took a few sips and although it came across as smooth, I did not like the flavor enough to finish it. It's all about personal taste, I'm sure others may love it. I think that 'perfumy' might be one adjective to describe it, unpleasant in my mouth or somehow between my mouth and my nose.

    • 

      Really nice jasmine green, wonderful fragrance, nice semi-sweet flavor. I love this cup.

      Great tea! I have discovered it can be brewed using boiling water, but It is very easy to make bitter, so one minute only. I can get 3 good steeps with boiling water at one minute each. 85 degree C water works too, but 2-3 min max for each steeping.

    • 

      I know most other people love these pearls, but I can't get behind them. The flavor is almost medicinal and no matter how pretty they are steeping, that can't get rid of the taste.

      I enjoyed this tea. I got this in my green tea sampler pack. This was not my favorite out of the bunch but it was still good

      It's really fun to watch the tea brewing. Great flavor also

      This is an awesome tea with a great flavor, and I love watching the pearls unfurl!

    • 

      My favorite Green tea of all time. It's amazing on its own with a little honey, or mixed with another tea like Honeybush Vanilla to add a little different flavour to the profile. I love that a little goes along way with this tea, and i can reuse the leaves for 2 or 3 cups.

      Top notch jasmine pearls. Excellent flavor hot or iced.

    • 

      Wonderful jasmine tea, it has a very strong aroma but the flavor is comparatively light and delicate

    • 

      Simply phenomenal. Very aromatic with a light, floral taste. If you're only steeping it once, you're missing out; the flavor gets more complex with the second and third infusions.

      I love this tea so much!!! I really enjoyed it shot

      These pearls were delightfully aromatic, with a soft flavor to the actual tea. One of my favorite Jasmine tea experiences

      I’d never tried jasmine pearls before Adagio - I got a sample in my Advent calendar last Christmas, and I loved it! Ordered my own standalone box of it. 🙌🏻

      I love this tea, it's well worth the price and a lovely gift for anyone who enjoys jasmine.

      I buy this for my daughter, she is totally addicted to it. I find it delicious as well, Easily get two cups from each teaspoon,(about 15 pearls) So really it's less expensive than it seems at first glance.. Delicious

      I personally don't drink this tea, but my mother loves it so much she's requested more of it.

      Absolutely loved this tea. I am not great at describing flavor but it didn't taste bitter or strongly of any type of plant like the green Gunpowder. It is a nice subtle flavor and an excellent compliment to flavored biscuits.

      This was a gift from a student. ABSOLUTELY my go-to special occasion tea.

      I just tried this green tea for the first time, and I love it! I think its my new favorite green tea that I have tried from Adagio. It tastes best very hot, if you can handle it. The pearls smells very fresh and herbal, kind of like grass.
