    Tips for Tea Connoisseurs

    Jasmine Phoenix Pearls (aka. Jasmine Dragon Pearls) are hand-rolled, Chinese artisan green tea which has been scented with jasmine blossoms. When tea leaves are harvested and the green tea making process is completed in spring, the finished green tea is carefully stored until summer when jasmine flowers start to bloom. Then the tea is layered with fresh jasmine blossoms during the night and the jasmine blossoms are removed in the following morning. This natural scenting process is repeated several nights until the aroma balance of the jasmine blossoms and green tea meets the standard of the skillful tea master.

    Our exquisite Jasmine Phoenix Pearls Green Tea comes from Fuding, Fujian Province of China, which has the best reputation for jasmine tea. While brewing, the tightly rolled pearls start to unfurl, releasing opulent and rich, sweet jasmine aromas. The liquor offers almost acacia honey-like sweetness with a lingering refreshing, floral finish. As tea connoisseurs may well have noticed, the high level of craftsmanship is also shown in the unfurled, brewed tea leaves, which shows meticulous fine plucking of one tiny, tender leaf and an unopened bud.

    When cold-brewed, our Jasmine Phoenix Pearls Green Tea makes a highly fragrant, refreshing iced tea as well. Simply brew approximately 12g of the tea in 1L carafe overnight in the fridge. It can be enjoyed as a refreshing apero in the summer evenings as a healthy, non-alcoholic alternative. You may well find it as your all-time favourite after your gym session! 

    For jasmine tea enthusiasts, we suggest trying Jasmine Phoenix Pearls with our other varieties of jasmine teas - Jasmine Silver Needle, Jasmine Oolong and Wild Jasmine Green Tea - to taste the differences.

    A home-brewed quality coffee is far less expensive than cafes

    Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID and the cost-of-living crisis brings, many are tightening the purse strings and choosing cheaper alternatives. However...For more: Comunicaffe International
    ...Whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a better quality home-brewed coffee or tea is still far less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Over the last few years, many have taken the opportunity to improve their home brewing skills, and now with the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home, are enjoying cheaper quality coffees. With cafe coffees costing anything from £2.50-4.00 each, and with a bag of 250g quality coffee costing between £7.00-12.50 and providing you with enough to achieve up to 15-35 brews per bag (depending on brew method and strength preferences), the savings and better quality coffee are both there to be enjoyed.

    If this isn't you, there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our huge range of quality independent roasters and brands from across UK, Europe and North America to support you in doing just that. With it easy to browse and shop for coffee on the marketplace or subscribe to a coffee subscription, it also won't be long until you discover a new favourite. All marketplace purchases are shipped direct for product freshness, with all subscriptions roasted fresh for us as part of our monthly delivery schedules.
