Product Description

Pale green liquor with a smooth and delicate Jasmine flavor. Watch as the hand-tied tea ball transforms into a flower-like blossom.

Jasmine Balls are hand rolled and tied. The leaf appearance tends toward a mottled and white appearance, indicating very early new season tea and extremely careful plucking. New season tea of this quality is rare and only available for 2-3 weeks each year. When you infuse a Jasmine Ball, you will see the outer leaves begin to uncurl. Once the infusion time is complete the tea looks like a chrysanthemum flower with long petals on the outside and the short petals on the inside. The chrysanthemum implies tranquillity, beauty, longevity and health

About Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearl Tea

Dragon-phoenix ball or pearl tea was a general designation for Song's North Garden tribute tea, which included the Dragon ball tea and the Phoenix Cake Tea. The North Garden was located in Phoenix Mountain of Jian'ou, Fujian Province. The Dragon-phoenix ball tea was already made during Song Taiping Xingguo period (A.D. 976-983). During the Xianping period (A.D 998-1003), Ding Wei made "Big Dragon Ball" to pay tribute. During Qingli period, Cai Xiang made "small Dragon Ball" which got the better of the "Big Dragon Ball". The Dragon-phoenix ball tea was the greatest achievement of ancient Chinese cake tea production.

This lovely tea is now grown in the Fujian and Jiangxi provinces, and Guandong province. Some say Dragon Phoenix Pearl gets its name from the tea bushes "climbing the hillsides like a Dragon rising from the waters". Others suggest it refers to the way the green and white leaves of the tea twist and swirl around one another. It is grown in a mountainous, often fog-shrouded area near the border of the Fujian and Jiangxi provinces. Dragon Phoenix Pearl is one of the finest jasmines shipped from the port of Foochow.

Jasmine pearls are tightly rolled white tea leaves (in tea talk, white = buds only) that have been suffused with Jasmine essence in the drying process. Lower grade Jasmine teas are packed with the flowers included; the best jasmine teas are not, since the scenting process has completely infused a very strong flavor and essence of Jasmine over a very delicate tea. Guandong province tea is excellent and very similar to the Jasmine Pearls from Imperial Tea Court at almost half the price. The base flavor of the Imperial Tea Court Pearls is superior, but it is not an exceptional difference.

The tea is plucked in April and May and stored until August when the finest jasmine blossoms are in bloom. Night blooming white jasmine flowers are picked in the morning when the tiny petals are tightly closed and kept cool until nightfall. In the early evening the flowers begin to open with a popping sound which is the signal for the scenting to begin.

Once open, the "mating" of the jasmine and tea leaves takes place in up to seven applications, each taking up to four hours, after which the jasmine petals are removed. Once the petals are removed each leaf and bud set are skillfully hand rolled into a tiny pearl size ball. The tea is then wrapped in silk mesh and dried to set the form. The "pearls" vary somewhat in size, with the higher grades containing larger and fewer broken pearls.

When steeped, these leaves unroll and produce a tea with a pronounced floral and fresh green tea scent, a full-bodied refreshing sweet taste, and a pleasing long lasting floral aftertaste. The hue of this tea is a light peach color.

During the first infusion the boiling water causes the tiny pearls to open like flowers and then sink slowly to the bottom of the cup. Amount? It is recommended to place 12 to 20 of these tiny pearls in a clear glass mug (10-12 ounces) to watch their graceful unfurling- some Western restaurants even serve it in a wine glass. Enjoy the superb fresh bouquet, delicate flavor and unique leaf without milk or sugar. This tea is special due to the scenting process, the tea that is used as its base, and the care taken afterwards. A typical grade of jasmine tea is scented once with jasmine petals, but in Pearl Jasmine the tea leaves are scented seven times. The green tea that is used as the Pearl Jasmine's base is a very high grade of green tea grown in China.

Dragon Pearl tea leaves are customarily reinfused by adding additional hotter water to the cup for a morning of drinking. Tea connoisseurs suggest pleasant differences in the flavor can be perceived for four to seven brewings.

It is recommended that oolong and white teas be brewed at a slightly lower water temperature than black tea, as the flavors are more delicate and volatile. Remove the freshly boiled water from the heat and allow it to stand for at least one minute- temperature 170-180 degrees. For multiple infusions, increase time and water temperature with each infusion.

The water used to steep this tea should be about 160-180°F or 70-80°C. Use about 2 teaspoons (3 grams) of tea leaves for about every 5 ounces (150 milliliters) of water. A steeping time of about 3-5 minutes with more or less time is recommended depending on the desired concentration. As a rough guide, the hotter the water or the greater the amount of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be. The use of a covered glass or ceramic cup is recommended for steeping in order to appreciate the tea leaves..
