Dragon Phoenix Pearl Jasmine

Dragon Phoenix Pearl Jasmine

This green tea gets its name from the tea bushes "climbing the hillsides like a Dragon rising from the waters". It is grown in a mountainous, often fog shrouded area near the border of the Fujian province and is one of the finest jasmines available. The tea is plucked in April and May and stored until August when the finest jasmine blossoms are in bloom. Night blooming white jasmine flowers are picked in the morning when the tiny petals are tightly closed and kept cool until nightfall. In the early evening the flowers begin to open with a popping sound which is the signal for the scenting to begin. The "mating" of the jasmine and tea takes place in several applications, after which the jasmine petals are removed. Once the petals are removed each leaf and bud set are hand rolled into a tiny pearl size ball. The tea is then wrapped in silk mesh and dried to set the balls.
Preparation: Use around 10 balls (around 7-10g) per 1/2 pint of water. Let brew for 3-5 minutes ( to taste ).
After drinking, pour on more water and start again. The same balls can be re-infused upto 4 times.

Please note price stated is for 50g
