Information: Jasmine Dragon Tears are a green tea and are made from the top two leaves and the bud of new season growth. These delicate leaves are hand rolled into small pearls. When you infuse these pearls in your tea cup, you will see the top two leaves and bud come to life. In fact you will see some small "hairy down" on the bud of the leaves, which denotes superb quality and very careful and delicate handling. The extraordinary flavor of these Dragon Tears is due to the time of plucking, manufacture and the fresh spring jasmine blooms. Dragon Pearls are only made from tea plucked in the first 3 weeks of the new season. Coinciding with the new tea growth, the jasmine bushes are in spring bloom. Only the most fragrant blossoms are used (from bushes that are known to product themost fragrant flowers). These fresh flowers are layered between the tea and before long the intense and uplifting fragrance of the new jasmine blooms is passed on to the tea.
An extraordinary taste experience!
