This tea is living archaeology
The leaves in this tea have been harvested and brewed just the same way they were over 1000 years ago.
Originally the tea was reserved for the elite of Chinese society, but due to changing times we can now brew and taste the same tea that has been prized for so long.
Whole tea leaves are harvested during the first growth of tea in the early spring. The leaves are then hand rolled into "pearls," dried, and finally rolled with jasmine flowers to absorb a natural jasmine flavor. This delicate process creates a very unique tea, a favorite of mine and revered among tea gourmands. When steeped the pearls expand and unroll to a surprising volume - great for multiple infusions.
