An exquisitely fragrant green tea that’s so good, even Buddha would burst into tears when taking a sip. Also named jasmine downy pearls or dragon pearl tea, this Chinese green and white tea is beloved for its unique shape. Buddha’s tears unfurl into a wiry tangle of leaves that release the most aromatic floral scent when brewed. The exceptional jasmine perfume pairs aesthetically with this tea’s appearance. It takes on the loveliest light golden hue when infused.
To pair this pristine tea with milk or honey would be a crying shame. Buddha’s Tears are best enjoyed on their own at any time of day. Our unique jasmine downy pearls combine jasmine flowers with a blend of high-grade green and white teas. Both of these tea types boast high levels of antioxidants that help rejuvenate the body and calm the mind. This blend boasts a premium tea grade as the balls are made from only the buds and first leaves of the tea plant (camellia sinensis). In fact, the ‘downy’ in jasmine downy pearls is a reference to the soft hairs that only cover the newly formed buds of a tea plant.
White tea is also the most naturally processed tea types. Paired with the healthy amounts of caffeine in green tea, our jasmine downy pearls will always leave the tea drinker feeling refreshed and revitalised. This tea also makes for a luxurious gift. As for those looking to expand their tea knowledge, The Tea Centre stocks a range of premium and jasmine teas.
