Tea Review: Green Tea Pearl (Kaley Tea)

Green Tea Pearl
Kaley Tea
Type: Green
Origin: Sri Lanka, Kotapola
Product Description:
Tender leaves and buds from a rare Chinese cultivar are plucked at dawn, steamed, panfried and rolled delicately on the palms of artisans.
Temperature: 190° F
Amount: 1 pearl (2.3 grams)
Steeping Time: 5 minutes

The dry leaves have a lightly sweet green aroma.

The pale peach yellow liquor has a light, sweet, green aroma with hints of grass and nuts.  The taste is light, savory, and green with a clean finish.

This tea has a particularly gentle flavor and aroma.  I would recommend using two pearls and/or steeping longer using hotter water to help the tea leaves unfurl and release more flavor.

Kaley Tea is located in a forested, lowland region of southern Sri Lanka, adjacent to the Sinharaja Forest Reserve, a tropical rainforest and UNESCO World Heritage Site. They specialize in organically grown teas plucked from 100-year-old tea trees and hand-processed in limited batches.
