An elegantly complex and truly exquisite tea. Carefully hand-picked in the spring, hand-rolled and expertly perfumed in the mountainous Fuding, Fujian Province.
Jasmine Pearl tea really is the finest example of the art of traditionally hand-crafted tea. Only the finest young, Chinese green tea leaves that have been naturally scented with fresh summer jasmine blossoms are used to produce this smooth green tea. The bud and long stem of the leaves are dried in direct sunlight in traditional bamboo trays to lower their moisture content so they become supple before the delicate leaves are ready for rolling in to their namesake “pearl” shape.
To make a pound of tea it takes at least 2,000 pearls.
Once rolled, the pearls are carefully stored to await the jasmine flower harvest in summer. Over consecutive nights the pearls are repeatedly and expertly heat infused with the freshly picked jasmine flowers to achieve the desired strength of aroma. For High Grade Jasmine Pearls the process is repeat at least five times. This is an ancient technique and is a skilled art handed down through generations of tea makers.
