Dragon Pearl Jasmine Green is our finest Jasmine scented tea. We only use spring-harvested leaf buds from Fuding County, Fujian for the base tea. The buds are handpicked, then steamed and individually rolled by hand. The finished tea is then stored to await the blossoming of late summer jasmine.
Once jasmine flowers begin blooming, the tea is taken out of storage and baked to remove residual moisture. Fresh jasmine flowers are then layered on top of the dry tea in such a way that the tea absorbs the moisture and aroma of the flowers. This process of scenting is repeated over the course of ten summer evenings using fresh flowers for each round.
The result is an intense and persistent jasmine aroma over a base tea that is both sweet and smooth. While pearl jasmine teas have become quite popular and are readily available, we have yet to come across one as delicious, balanced and aromatic as this one.
