Brew with water at a temperature between 75 and 80 degrees and leave to infuse for 1 to 3 minutes
Jasmine Pearl Tea is a scented White and Green Tea Blend. It comes from the Chinese Hunan province where producers roll the leaves into elegant pearl-shaped balls.
While brewing, these leaves unfurl before your eyes in what most would describe as a truly captivating experience. The greatest pleasure of all, however, is their exquisite taste, which consists of an enchanting floral flavour with sweet undertones.
What is Jasmine Pearl Tea?
The history of Chinese Jasmine Tea Pearls arguably began not in China, but Persia (Iran). This was where the flowers first grew millennia ago. But when did Jasmine and Tea meet? No one knows for sure, although some believe it occurred during the Chinese Song Dynasty (660-1279).
One thing is certain: Jasmine-scented Tea became popular in the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), a time for all things floral.
China remains the largest producer of Jasmine Tea - including, of course, our Jasmine Pearl Tea. Its processing has changed little over the last few hundreds of years - which is unsurprising, really, because if it’s not broken, why fix it?
Workers continue to create this infusion with artful precision, ensuring that when you make a cuppa, you fall for its mesmerising character.
Does Jasmine Pearl Tea Have Caffeine?
But character only takes you so far when you need to get out of bed in the morning. The question then begs: What is Jasmine Pearl Tea’s caffeine content? White Tea and Green Tea are the least oxidised and second-least oxidised types, respectively.
This influences the caffeine they contain, which, when it comes to Jasmine Pearl Tea, amounts to around 30-mg per 8-oz cup.

Jasmine Pearl Tea Benefits
While it’s true that Jasmine Pearl Green Tea benefits your energy levels only minimally, it nevertheless has a significant influence on your health and wellbeing.
This is because it boasts one particularly special antioxidant called Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which can combat free radicals in the body. The result is that it reduces the risk of developing numerous chronic conditions. And that’s not all.
Arguably most noteworthy is its ability to improve skin health. The evidence comes from a study published by BioMed Central, which involved scientists examining Jasmine Tea’s effects on structural skin proteins called elastin and collagen.
The conclusion was that it prevented the breakdown of these vital proteins, thus helping to prevent age-related wrinkles and sagging skin.
