Our hunt for the perfect tea takes us this time to China to find a very unique rarity - Jasmin Dragon Pearl tea. This tea grows in the Southeast mountains of China. Only the most delicate and youngest leaves of the finest teas are used to form the basis of this precious tea. It can be made with green, oolong or black tea, but in our case we use green tea.
The tea leaves are harvested in the early spring and stored until the late summer when jasmine flowers are in blooming. Jasmine flowers are picked early in the day when the small petals are tightly closed. The flowers are kept in a cool environment until the night when they open and this is the time when they release the fragrance. At exactly this point they are mixed with the tea leaves. This process is repeated up to 6 times until the fragrance has been absorbed by the tea. Then, they are sieved and rolled by hand into small pearls. The result is a tea that’s sweet and extremely fragrant!
