chahdragonpearlsAt some point I should just get over the seemingly countless tea merchants in existence today, but today as I sampled Chah’s Dragon Phoenix Pearls, I marveled at the fact that there was (yet another) new-to-me tea vendor. Chah is a UK-based tea company whose website seems very user-friendly and offers a nice variety of tea and teaware, although perhaps not as large of a variety as many other online tea shops. The dragon phoenix pearls present themselves as smallish, tightly rolled spheres with a pleasing jasmine aroma that I, as if I was Goldilocks, found to be “just right”. The brewed tea, which was prepared by infusing about 10 pearls in 10 ounces of sub-boiling water for two minutes, was sweet with a soft jasmine flavor. This tea was very easy on the tongue. An ideal one-word description for this tea, whether with respect to the jasmine flavor or the green tea base, would be “delicate”. By this, I do not mean that the tea was weak, but rather that neither the floral nor the green tea component was too pungent or overpowering. The overall effect was a refined cup of tea with a remarkable smoothness. The Chah website mentions that the tea leaves are scented with jasmine petals six times before being rolled into the pearl shapes. After reading that, I would have expected a much more potent flower flavor, but I also must say that I was personally pleased that the jasmine contribution did not become too excessive. I don’t drink jasmine teas all that often, but I would have to rank these pearls among the best of all of the jasmine-infused teas that I have had. I think this is a good option for those that are just venturing into jasmine teas, and I also see this as being an ideal selection for those who, like me, enjoy floral teas that do not reach “maximum strength” floweriness.
