Dragon Pearls is Jasmine green tea scented with the aroma of Jasmine blossoms. Tea leaves are harvested in the early spring and stored until the late summer when fresh Jasmine flowers are in bloom. Jasmine flowers are picked early in the day when the small petals are tightly closed. The flowers are kept cool until nightfall. During the night, Jasmine flowers open, releasing their fragrance. This is when the tea scenting takes place. The tea is blended with jasmine flowers and stored overnight It takes over four hours for the tea to absorb the fragrance and flavour of the jasmine blossoms. The leaves are then tightly rolled in ball shapes. When placed in hot water they open up.

Available as loose tea or in biodegradable tea sachets.
