Jasmine Dragon Pearl, China

Making traditional jasmine tea is a true labour of love. For fine quality teas such as this, the lengthy process has changed little over hundreds of years. Our Dragon Pearl begins as a single-estate green tea from Bailin village in Fuding, Fujian province. Known as Fuding Da Bai, this delicate tea is harvested in the early spring when the local bushes produce their finest, freshest leaves. The leaves are withered and hand-rolled before being gently dried. Each pea-sized pearl is a miniature work of art, its silvery bud skilfully wrapped around the rolled leaf. But this is just the first step…

In the late summer the dried tea is transported to Hengxian, Guangxi province, to an award-winning jasmine tea master with 34 years' experience. At this point the local Arabian jasmine plants are in full bloom and their flowers are at their fragrant best. Mr Huang mixes fresh jasmine buds through the tea. Then, as the humidity rises overnight, the buds open and infuse the pearls with their distinctive perfume. This is repeated over the next five nights, with the flowers sifted out and the tea re-dried each morning.

  • AROMA:

    Delicate mineral fruitiness and sweet floral notes

THE ART OF PREPARATION

JASMINE DRAGON PEARL GREEN TEA

  • 1 TPS

  • 90ºC

  • 3-5 MINS

  • TWO STEEPS

This is our recommended brewing guide, but by all means adjust to your own taste.

  1. Warm your teapot and cups with boiling water.
  2. Discard the water and add one level teaspoon of tea to your pot.
  3. Add 200ml / 7oz water (i.e. one teacup or small mug) at 90°C / 194°F. If you don't have a thermometer, let the boiled kettle sit for four minutes.
  4. Place the lid on the pot and steep for three-to-five minutes. Stir, then strain the tea into your cup.
  5. To re-steep the leaves, repeat steps 3–5 (up to two times).
Makes one cup. For more, add an extra teaspoon per person and multiply the amount of water accordingly.
Always use freshly-drawn and, where possible, filtered water.
