Pearl Jasmine Green Tea

The pearl jasmine tea is a green tea that is scented with jasmine flower petals. This tea comes in hand rolled pearl shaped balls. When steeped, the balls unroll and the tea leaves release a wonderful fragrance. The end result is an excellent tasting green tea with a bright floral smell and taste.

Steep 4-10 tea balls in hot water for 3-5 minutes or longer depending on your taste.

(3.5 ounces per package).
