Phoenix Dragon Pearl Jasmine
Dragon Phoenix Pearl is one of the finest jasmine teas from the Fujian and Jiangxi provinces.
The tealeaves, buds and first open leaves, are hand harvested in April and May and stored until August when the finest jasmine blossoms are in bloom. White jasmine flowers are picked in the morning when the tiny petals are tightly closed and kept cool until nightfall. In the early evening the flowers begin to open and the jasmine fragrance transfers to the tea leaves. This process is repeated over a period of about 4 weeks. The jasmine petals are removed after each process. After the last process leave and bud sets are skillfully hand rolled into tiny pearl size balls.
3-5 pearls per cup, water temp. 90 celsius, ready to drink after 5-7 minutes.
