Brewing instructions: Jasmine Dragon Pearls
Weigh out 2 to 3 grams / 1 teaspoon of pearls. Infuse the tea leaves in a teapot or gaiwan filled with freshly-heated 75-80ºC water for around three minutes. The hot water should magically unfurl the pearls - yielding a lovely pale green liquor in the process. When brewing delicate green teas, it is important to avoid using too hot water that can ruin the leaves and leave a bitter taste in your cup. You can reuse the same leaves to steep many cups of tea, until the flavour from the leaves has been exhausted.
Jasmine Pearls are made using only the highest-quality green tea leaves grown from Fuding Da Bai Cultivar tea bushes in the Panxizhen Tea Garden. This tea garden is situated at an elevation of 400-500m in Fuding County, Fujian Province, China. The tea leaves are the processed in a tea factory just down the road in Hulin Village. The leaves are then kept in cold-storage until late summer, when they are transported to Hengxian County, Guangxi Province where scenting with Jasmine flowers takes place.
