Or Tea?™ 'Dragon Pearl Jasmine' Premium tea - loose leaves
Each “pearl” is made from the finest jasmine flowers with unfermented green tea leaves. The choicest leaves are harvested during mid-Summer and many stringent steps are then applied to ensure the refreshing floral fragrance is fully infused into the tea. This is a tea so precious, even the dragons have given up chasing the good old flaming pearl. As one of Ten Best Teas in China, this green tea was reserved as a tribute to emperors. Commonly known as Mao Feng, with the best pick having 1 bud plus 2 leaves intact in emerald green. Indeed, it had entered tea markets of London and Paris early in the seventies.

Green Tea is plucked, dried and rolled. It is not oxidised because during the rolling process, oxidation is prevented by applying heat. Simultaneously, the leaves are shaped by curling with the fingers, pressing into the sides of the wok. The leaves are then rolled and swirled - countless shapes have been created, each with a different taste. The leaves are then given their final firing to fully dry them, after which they are done. The liquor of a green tea is typically a green or yellow colour, and flavours range from toasty, grassy (pan fired teas) to fresh steamed greens (steamed teas) with mild, vegetable-like astringency. The more popular varieties of green tea include Dragon Well (also known as Lung Ching), Genmai Cha, Gyokuro, Gunpowder, Hojicha, Pi Lo Chun and Sencha, just to name a few.
