Smooth and delicate tea pearls with pleasing flavour and a heavenly Jasmine character. Jasmine is traditionally Chinese, however this tea is from the Japanese Tea Gardens in China's Fujian province on the southeast coast of the mainland. The long green tea buds are hand-picked from the young green tea plants and are heated soon after picking to arrest oxidation of the leaves. They are then carefully stored for several weeks until the Jasmine flowers blossom. The tea buds are very skillfully hand rolled into perfect spheres and layered over several nights with the fresh Jasmine blossoms. Just a few pearls yield a highly fragrant liquor, bright with refreshing Jasmine and sweet with the soft creamy undertones of the tea buds.
Suggested Pairings: This tea would pair well with fresh fruits and curried dishes. It would also taste superb if infused into custards and other dairy, or for steaming fish.
