Review of Jasmine Pearls from Canton Tea Co.

Brand: Canton Tea Co. Jasmine Pearls

Tea Rating: 90/100

Steep Time: 1-3 Minutes

Steep Temperature: approx. 170 Degrees

This is a green tea that is infused with the jasmine flower. An interesting thing about this tea is the leaves are the Silver Needle white tea harvest, but are processed as a green tea. Usually Jasmine teas are very perfume  like, where you have to be very careful when steeping them, because one mistake could lead to disaster. I didn’t find that with this tea at all. On first impression, the pearls were gorgeous, they looked soft and smelled divine. The pearls are much smaller than I have experienced in the past. The tea is not like some jasmine teas that can be excessively scented through oils or flavoring,which usually cause a highly floral taste and aroma, which is unsettling for me. Instead, Canton Tea Co. naturally scents the Silver Needle hand rolled pearls with Jasmine Blooms. The smell and taste of the Jasmine was authentic, and not artificial. The aroma of the tea was of Jasmine flowers, sweet and soft, calming me down and reminding me of a sleepy time tea. The color of the liquor was very light, as expected from the white tea leaves. The white tea is tasty, I could taste the creaminess and sweetness from the Silver Needle tea. I steeped this tea 4 times, and by the 4th steep, the Jasmine had slowly gone away, but the Silver Needle was still as tasty as the first steep. In addition to the Silver Needle flavors, the taste has sweet finish, leaving the Jasmine flower smell in the aroma and the sweetness from the Jasmine in the cup. I really enjoy this tea, and imagine that it would be amazing iced!

  2. Yup. This is the best jasmine tea that I have ever tried. As you say, it is not perfume-y at all. Amazing stuff. Great review!

  3. I haven’t tried any Jasmine silver needles (other than that made into Jasmine pearls) but I’ve definitely noticed that the character of Jasmine pearl teas I’ve tried has been really different from the Jasmine greens and pouchongs, which I find to be more perfumey. But I even find a huge difference in quality of those…some blend better whereas others come across as outright harsh.

    I only recently learned of Canton Tea Company and I’m starting to hear good things about their teas, so this review was an interesting read! =) I have yet to try anything from them.
