Jasmine Pearls otherwise known as Buddha's tears is one of our most famous high-grade green teas from Fuzhou, Fujian Province China. Each delicate leaf has been infused with jasmine flowers then individually hand-rolled into pearls which consist of one tender shoot and two leaves, which slowly and gracefully unfurl when infused with water, releasing the glorious floral tones of jasmine blossoms. The sensory experience offered by this tea is an absolute must.
