These beautifully rolled pearls represent the finest Chinese tea making traditions. The tea itself is small, dark green pearls that are hand rolled and layered with jasmine blossoms for several days. Fresh flowers are brought in each day, until the pearls are infused with fragrance & flavour.
Crafted from spring picked green tea leaves and fresh jasmine blossoms. Each pearl is a tender silvery bud, carefully rolled and dried with jasmine blossoms. When brewed, the pearls unravel, producing a mellow honey flavour with fresh floral tones.
This tea makes a wonderful gift.

Highly Enjoyable Review by ['Daneski']
With each cup I easily fall into a relaxed savour the moment. While reading or after a meditation session the smooth light golden honey hue and heady scent of the jasmine flowers is my idea of nirvana.Posted on 2022-04-02

Vancouver has a lot of great tea shops and sellers of quality green teas. I have consistently found Murchies product to be comparable in quality to these sellers. It's my go to place for this product.Posted on 2020-06-19
Excellent Tea Review by Jackie
I have tried several kinds of dragon pearl jasmine tree over the years. A friend brought me some from her home, Vietnam, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I found that this tea is just as good. I really enjoy it and plan to order some more today.Posted on 2020-05-06

not worth the money Review by Mervette
when I bought this tea from Murchies I believed it would be top quality. I tried other jasmine pearls from other merchants and they turned out to be better than these. perhaps the tea I received was old and stale but it definitely would be more worth your money to buy the loose jasmine tea and forget about the pearls.Posted on 2018-09-11

Flavour Profile Guide
Tea and coffee tasting is a very individual, multi-dimensional experience: one person’s perfect cup can be too strong or weak, too brisk or watery for the next person. At Murchie’s, we believe that the best tea or coffee is the one that YOU like the best! We use the following flavour profile guides to help compare our teas and coffees within a relative scale.
Tea Strength Ratings
This rating method indicates the strength of flavour each tea has when brewed according to our brewing guide.
|Light/Delicate: Very light in colour and delicate in flavour|
|Medium: Medium-light cup with slightly fuller cup|
|Medium-Strong: Medium-dark cup, medium body, and full flavour without harshness|
|Strong: Full body, rich cup, takes milk well|
|Very Strong: Rich, dark cup with very full, strong flavour and briskness|
We rate the flavour properties of our coffees along two dimensions: roast and body.
Roast is simply a result of how long and how hot the beans have been roasted, which can be seen in the colour of the finished bean, and typically results in general flavour traits:
|Light Roast||More acidity, brightness and a slight pucker|
|Medium Roast||Slightly richer flavours, some acidity, enhanced creaminess|
|Dark Roast||Distinctive roasted flavour, sometimes notes of toasted sugar or charcoal|
Body is the term used to describe how the brewed coffee feels in your mouth:
|Light Body||Easy to drink with little lingering flavour, ‘thin’ or ‘clean’ feeling on the palate|
|Medium Body||Heavier, creamier mouth-feel with more lingering flavour|
|Full Body||Rich, full-mouth feeling: hits all of the palate and lingers|
Tea Brewing Guide
Different types of teas should be brewed according to certain times and water temperatures to bring out their best flavours. Use this guide as a starting point, and then experiment until you find the perfect brewing method for your favourite tea.
Based on approximately one level teaspoon (2.5g) of loose tea or one tea bag per 6-8 ounce (180-240ml) cup. For stronger flavour, add more tea. Brewing for longer may increase the strength of the tea, but will likely also cause bitterness.
Brew times shown in minutes.
Coffee Brewing Guide
The simplest methods for brewing coffee are drip coffee, pour over and French press. These guidelines are a starting point; modify the ratio of coffee to water, the grind, and brewing time to your taste. If your coffee is not strong enough, increase the proportion of coffee per cup of water, grind the beans finer, or allow them to brew longer – or any combination of these factors. If your coffee is too strong, simply do the opposite.
Drip coffee or pour over method: hot water is gradually poured over coffee grounds and slowly drips through
- Fine to medium grind coffee
- 1.5 to 2.5 tablespoons of coffee per cup of water
- Coarse grind coffee
- 1 to 1.5 tablespoons of coffee per cup (e.g. 4-6 tbsp for a 4-cup French press)
- Pour about 1/3 of the water over the coffee grinds; wait about 30 seconds and then pour in the rest
- Wait 4-5 minutes, then push down the plunger to separate the grounds from finished coffee, and enjoy!
