Jasmine Pearls Green Tea is one of the prettiest treasures from the world of tea. The tea gardens are in the mountains of southeast China, and for more than 100 years, only the finest and youngest leaves have formed the basis for this rarity. While the leaves are not quite dry they are mixed with fresh, delicately smelling jasmine blossoms up to six times, then sieved and rolled by hand into small pearls. When you infuse these pearls in your tea cup, you will see the top two leaves and the bud come to life and you will also see some small ‘hairy down’ on the bud of the leaves – this denotes superb quality and very careful and delicate handling.
The extraordinary flavour of these Jasmine Pearls is due to the time of plucking, the new tea season starts in China in late March/early April (dependent on weather patterns) and it is during the first 4 weeks that the best teas are manufactured. Jasmine Pearls are made from leaves plucked in the first 3 weeks of the new season which coincides with the first fresh Spring bloom of Jasmine flowers, only the most fragrant blossoms are used from bushes known to produce the most fragrant flowers! An extraordinary taste experience!
