Jasmine Dragon Pearls

Other names: Mo Li Long Zhu

This spring green tea is rolled into beautiful pearls that are scented with fresh jasmine flowers. Once brewed, the pearls unravel to reveal long, juicy buds that create a strong floral aroma and taste that will entice the senses and inspire thoughts of long summer days.

Our Jasmine Dragon Pearls are made with real Jasmine Flowers. The green tea used is picked during the green tea harvest in spring and is stored until August when the Jasmine flowers are picked. For every 1 kg of Green tea, 2 kg of Jasmine flowers are used. The tea and flowers are mixed together and left for 12 hours overnight. The next day the tea is sieved out and is heated. This process is repeated over the next few days until the required taste has been achieved. After much deliberation we have settled on infusing our Jasmine Pearls for three nights in a row as this resulted in the greatest harmony between the green tea and jasmine flavours. 

We visited the Jasmine Farm in Changle where our Jasmine Dragon Pearls are made. It is a beautiful farm surrounded by mountains in the province of Fujian. The Jasmine Flowers are picked when they are still buds and only when they are a certain size. We spent some time picking Jasmine and getting to know the farmers. 

The quality of the tea depends on the quality of the base green tea and the effectiveness of the scenting which is why we found it so important to be involved with every stage of this tea! 

The jasmine plant was brought to China from Persia in the third century but was not used in tea making until the fifth century. Jasmine tea became most popular in China during the Sung Dynasty when it became a speciality and remains a highly popular drink to this day!
