Episode 029: Jasmine Pearls

Mmmm…jasmine pearls. In my regular rotation of teas, jasmine pearls is always there. Tightly rolled little nuggets of green tea dusted with the scent of jasmine blossoms? I’m sold. And for value, you can get several steepings from a few teaspoons.

These jasmine pearls from Ocean of Tea are something you definitely need to try. Try brewing in a glass teapot and watch the leaves unfurl!

Episode 133: Yunnan Gold

I recently picked up a few teas from Ocean of Tea, and this was the first one I had to try — Yunnan Gold. This is a black tea from Yunnan, China (where else?) characterized by soft golden tips on the leaves.

This is a really smooth and full-bodied tea with no bitterness or astringency. There’s a slight sweetness here that’s reminiscent of raisins and chocolate with a bit of a peppery aftertaste. It’s not quite Raisinetes, but you know what I mean. If you’re looking to upgrade your daily Black tea to something a little more refined, pick this up!
