A speciality of Fujian Province in China, hand-rolled pearls of the finest jasmine-infused loose leaf green tea.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry place away from strong light and odours. Once opened, store in an airtight container.
Our artisan Jasmine Dragon Pearls have been crafted with extraordinary skill, rolling the youngest green tea leaves by hand and layering them up to six times with fresh jasmine blossoms, ready to absorb their fragrant oil as the buds begin to open at dusk. The pearly leaves unfurl like blossoms in the infusion, creating a beautifully light and aromatic brew which releases layers of flavour with each steeping.
You'll find it's the perfect loose leaf tea for enjoying over the course of the day, and we tend to brew a fresh pot as an after-dinner palate-cleanser.

During the scenting process, the green tea leaves are layered up to six times with fresh jasmine once the buds start to open at dusk, then carefully turned to release the flower’s essential oils. It takes months of labour and no less than 400 jasmine flowers to make just 100g of naturally scented jasmine tea, but we think the effort’s worth it.
