From Imperial Tea Court

We are pleased to maintain our fanatically high standards for the great jasmine tea you’ve come to know and love. We individually wrap “pearls” of fine spring green tea in cotton paper to protect against unwanted moisture. The tea has been enhanced with more tips and additional scenting, and between each scenting, the tea is fired with charcoal by hand. The result is almost snow-white “pearls,” which are scented to maximize the floral aromatics, yielding an intense fragrance with an ultra-smooth mouth-feel.

Preparation:
For best results, we suggest brewing this year’s Jasmine Pearls in a gaiwan at near boiling point. Infuse the pearls for a minute or two (depending on strength desired), and wait for the tea to cool a bit before enjoying. Use approximately 5 grams of “pearls” per 8 oz of water. As always, adjust the quantity of leaves and the water temperature according to your personal preference.

Song pairing: Darkside — Heart

Ethereal nature of jasmine combined with the cold and rainy front approaching quickly this morning. I better mow the lawn right now.

I can’t recall what I was drinking or eating. I remember the intoxication, though.

She sat at the table next to me, both of us seeking respite, tucked away in the rear section of the tea house away from the ant-like movement of the tourists throughout the ferry building. I commented on the aroma escaping in wispy fingers from her gaiwan. We made eye contact and I was floored by the beauty that radiated from within her. She wore jasmine in her hair, plucked from somewhere in the city on her way to this quiet moment. In a style of interaction that I realize now will never happen in a post-pandemic timeline, she offered her next pour to me. I put a stranger’s cup to my lips and drank her perfume, supposedly the finest jasmine tea in the world.

Foolish decisions leave lasting impressions.

I found in the kitchen a large tin of this tea of unknown age; old, that’s for sure (the address on the bag in the tin is for the original Imperial Tea Court location on Powell Street in San Francisco), but it’s still very good. Best western. Very strong jasmine can get chemical tasting if brewed grandpa style.

I did not noticed any chemical tasting while drinking grandpa! I have to prepare it in gaiwan too. Hopefully soon!

derk

I think maybe I just used too much leaf the last time I prepared it grandpa style. For a dozen or so mornings I was giving a teaspoon of pearls the thermos treatment (20 oz, lower temp water, stewing for several hours) and it ended up being a really nice tea to drink throughout the work day with no chemical taste. I dunno.

I still have alf you sent me. Keeping it for some nice afternoon.

derk

I’m so glad you enjoy this one! I have only 1 tsp left, else I’d send you more.

Martin Bednář

Don’t worry, your sample was very generous to try it!

Another Sample from derk!

I hope I’m putting this in the right place!
This is a lovely, delicate cuppa. There’s the obvious floral that you would expect, but there’s also notes of stonefruit, grass, hay, a strong natural sweetness, and did I mention stonefruit? This tastes surprisingly like peaches! It’s very lovely. The flavor is mellow enough to be smooth, but strong enough not to taste weak. Put this one on the pile of “May have to acquire for me later!” It’s one of the best jasmine pearls I’ve tried, although that’s not saying much, I don’t have a ton of experience with jasmine pearls!

Very good. Lovely cuppa. Highly recommend.

Have you had peach jasmine dragon pearls from Teavivre? They are really good! I also adore their Premium Jasmine Dragon Pearls, my fave of all jasmine I have tried.

I think I had some samples of the peach jasmine dragon pearls. IIRC, I loved it, but it’s all gone now…

Sample from derk and she don’t know how old it is. No matter what, it is still very jasmine.

Oh yeah, wonderful pearls of tea withwhite notes on them. I have tossed about 4 grams in my cup and prepared grandpa.

It turned out great. Very strong in jasmine, but base green tea was delicous as well. Very refreshing, mood lifting and enjoayble.

There is not much to write about to be honest – it’s clear jasmine tea, without any off flavours or aromas. Yeah, dry aroma reminded me rather honey, than jasmine. Maybe it was honeysuckle? I never smelled that flower, so I have no idea how it smells.
