A tightly rolled, pearl shaped 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, and harvested in spring with a picking standard of a bud plus a leaf and sprig. The tea is rolled into the desired pearl shape and dried, then layered with jasmine blossoms (approximately 70% tea to 30% blossoms), allowed to rest, sorted, fired and the process is repeated several times to ensure a fine, beautifully scented tea. Upon brewing, the tightly wound pearls unfurl in the cup, resulting in a highly fragrant, aromatic brew.
