Jasmine Dragon Pearls - Loose Leaf

Size Guide
Size

A delicate 100% Organic, intensely fragrant speciality green tea from the mist shrouded mountains of northern Fujian, China. Tender silver-tipped tea buds are layered with freshly gathered jasmine blossoms - the production processes of this Artisan tea producer have remained largely unchanged for centuries.

Jasmine flowers normally bloom at night, so buds are picked in the afternoon and layered with tea in the evening just as they open. The blossoms can take about four hours to impart their lovely essence, requiring constant monitoring and this whole process is repeated several times before being hand-rolled into elegant pearls.

  • Ingredients:100% Organic Green and White teas, Infused with fresh jasmine flowers
  • Origin:Northern Fujian, China
    • Infuse for 3-4 minutes in water well below boiling (80°C). Add just a few tea pearls per serving and can re-infuse for up to 3 times.

    • According to legend a Chinese emperor in the Song dynasty (960-1279AD) regularly used several hundred pots of jasmine to perfume the palace grounds. And it was around this time the Chinese began to scent their teas by adding blossoms from jasmine, rose, lotus and lychee.

    • Comes packed in our distinctive airtight Chateau Rouge tins. Keep your tea fresh; reseal tin after use and store in a cool dry place away from strong aromas. All packaging is recyclable and labels printed on FSC approved paper.
