Jasmine Dragon Pearls Loose Tea
Out of stock
A speciality of Fujian Province in China, hand-rolled pearls of the finest jasmine-infused loose leaf green tea.
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.

More about this Tea
Sweet and fresh, with floral jasmine
Pair with spicy food for a tingling mouth sensation
In Chinese folklore dragons are said to have 117 scales in the perfect proportion of Ying and Yang, so we thought we’d give this tea the number 117…
The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.
