Our most treasured Green Tea.

Grown among the mountainous tea gardens of Yunnan province, the tea leaves are shipped to Fujian for pearl shaping. Once the leaves have been hand-shaped, the pearls are sent to Guangxi province where they are scented by tea masters using the "Hong Ti" technique. These premium leaves are infused with a high quantity of buds, bringing a bright and energetic character to every cup. Fashioned in the most prestigious regions of China, every cup of our Jasmine Jade Dragon Pearls is a treasure to enjoy. 

The Hong Ti scenting technique uses two rounds of scenting ("Yin" in Chinese). The second round is of crucial importance as it uses a high concentration of jasmine buds to create that energetic floral character. Following the second scenting round, the pearls undergo a light roasting. Roasting after scenting ensures the tea is embodied with a lasting floral character.

 

Tasting Notes: Soft and Sweet with an Energetic Jasmine aroma and Delicate body.
