Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearls | Green Tea
Our sweetest jasmine tea. The pearl shape softens the steeping, but the large quantity of buds provides some bright and energetic character to the traditional floral flavor.
These are the highest quality jasmine pearls at the best price we have seen in a long time. These pearls were scented by Mr. Lin Hua Gui on July 13, 2021 in Guangxi, China. In China this particular style of pearls is referred to as “liǎng xūn yī tí” ( 两窨一提), which can be translated as “twice scented, one soaring/flying.” It is jasmine scented two times, each time followed by a light roasting. The roasting helps the leaf to absorb the jasmine aromatics. The third and final scenting uses a particularly high quality jasmine flower without any final roasting.
