Jasmine Pearls Green Tea Rolled Leaf Various Options

£2.10

 Jasmine Dragon Tears

A rich, soothing cup of indulgence this little treat is as good for you as it tastes. Jasmine Dragon Tears are made from the top two leaves and the bud of new season growth (Late March /early April). These delicate leaves are then carefully hand rolled into the small pearls.

Upon infusion, you will see the top two leaves and bud come to life and unfurl. The Small ‘hairy down’ on the bud of the leaves is a sign of the highest quality and delicate handling. A pale peachy gold colour, the cup is aromatic and relaxing.

The extraordinary flavour of these Jasmine Dragon tears is due to the time of plucking, manufacture and the fresh spring jasmine blooms. The new tea season starts in China in late March/early April and it is during the first 4 weeks that the best teas are made. After this initial period, the quality of the teas and green leaf start to deteriorate rapidly and become quite ordinary.
Dragon Tears are only made from tea plucked in the first 3 weeks of the new season, coinciding with the jasmine spring bloom carefully selected individual plants are chosen for the most fragrant blossoms to used. These fresh flowers are layered between the tea and in the goodness of time the intense and uplifting fragrance of the new jasmine blooms is passed on to the tea, leaving the bag open is enough to scent a whole room.
We all know that Green teas are very healthy, not so many people know that Jasmine is also very good for you. It is great for relieving nervous tension, a remarkable soothing tea, ideal for busy people who would like to relax.
An extraordinary taste experience! Jasmine also helps break down saturated fat, reduces cholesterol and improves circulation.
