Jasmine Blossom ~ Tropical ~ Floral
A perennial favorite, fragrant jasmine pearls is a tightly rolled (pearl shape) tea, scented only with jasmine blossoms. Wonderfully floral, this exceptional grade of jasmine pearls is from the Da Bai Cha cultivar and processed, not as a white tea, but as a green.
This exceptional, hand-rolled tea is produced in Fuding, Fujian Province, China. The tea is harvested in spring, with a picking standard of a bud plus a leaf and sprig. Initially, the tea is rolled into the desired pearl shape and dried. Then, the processed tea is layered with jasmine blossoms (approximately 70% tea to 30% blossoms), allowed to rest, sorted, fired and the process is repeated several times which ensures a fine, beautifully scented tea. Upon brewing, the tightly wound pearls unfurl in the cup, resulting in a highly fragrant, aromatic brew.
