The Jasmine Pearl welcomes our first ever Japanese black tea, this one blended with yuzu rind. This Japanese black tea is naturally sweet and very smooth with a round mouthfeel and no astringency. In this blend, it is warmly complemented by the yuzu lemon-grapefruit citrus finish. Yuzu is a Japanese citrus lemon that is valued for its highly aromatic rind. Although this citron doesn’t contain much liquid, its zest and juice are used in perfumes, vinegars, syrups, and as a souring ingredient that stands up well to heat in cooking. Another iced pleasure!
