What others say about this tea...
Buddhas Tears (Jasmine Pearls) is known as a premium tea that gives off the most exquisite jasmine aromas. Watch the balls uncurl over time, with only around 5 needed for the full effect.
A high quality tea naturally scented with Jasmine and made from young fresh leaves that leaves a very pleasant and floral fragrance that is neither overwhelming nor artificial.
What's our secret with our Buddhas Tears and why does it hold its scent so well? We don't carry a large amount of stock of this one and it has been scented 7 times, so the time between harvest and getting to you is drastically reduced. We may only hold around 3 months worth of stock at one time.

The Legend Behind the Name
Rooted in rich folklore, Buddha's Tears Tea derives its evocative name from an old tale. As per the legend, Buddha, moved by the sufferings of humanity, shed tears of compassion. When these tears touched the ground, they transformed into these tea pearls, symbolizing empathy and divine connection.
A Tapestry of Flavors
Beyond its intriguing name, Buddha's Tears Tea offers a distinct taste experience. Each pearl unravels delicate layers of flavor — floral, slightly sweet, with a hint of smokiness. As the pearls unfurl during brewing, they release a delicate aroma, reminiscent of jasmine, taking the drinker on an aromatic escapade.
