Jasmine Pearls (Dim of Jasmine) - Flavoured green tea.
The leaves of this rare speciality tea from China are picked by hand and rolled into small balls, without breaking the veins, and flavoured with jasmine flowers. The tea leaves are harvested in the early spring and stored until the late summer when fresh jasmine flowers are in bloom. Jasmine flowers are picked early in the day when the small petals are tightly closed. The flowers are kept cool until nightfall. During the night jasmine flowers open, and release their fragrance, and this is when the tea scenting takes place. There are two main methods used to scent the tea with the jasmine. In one method the tea and flowers are placed in alternating layers; in the other, the tea is blended with jasmine flowers and stored overnight. It takes over four hours for the tea to absorb the fragrance and flavour of the jasmine blossoms. The tea absorbs moisture from the fresh Jasmine flowers so it must be dried again to prevent spoilage.
