Wednesday, 8 April 2020 | The Tea Makers of London
Summer breezes and warm long evenings. Red and gold autumn leaves crunch beneath foot. Winter morning mists thinly veil frosty hillsides, streams and woodlands. But what of spring? Only apple blossom, only little lambs hopping in buttercupped meadows, only a new beginning and the perfect time to take pleasure in the finest loose leaf teas around.
If you love your tea, don't let spring pass you by without having taken a well-earned moment to exult in these magnificent offerings:
Jasmine Dragon Pearls, No.55
Our perfectly balanced Jasmine Dragon Pearl green tea imparts an intense floral flavour and a beautiful fragrance. The infusion has an elegant champagne colour which looks stunning when served in glass teaware.
Jasmine Dragon Pearls is an artisan Chinese tea made from premium green tea leaves and jasmine flowers. During production, the tea leaves are layered with bloomed jasmine buds, which allows the essential jasmine oils to seep into the tea. The tea leaves are then delicately rolled into beautiful little pearls that unfurl when steeped into hot water.
Jasmine Dragon Pearls tea is named so because of the pearl shape of the tea. The jasmine green tea grows in the Fujian Province of China. Jasmine Dragon Pearls tea is created by hand rolling specially plucked long, silver, velvety shoots into little tea balls which are then naturally scented with fresh, aromatic jasmine flowers.
Watching this this tea steep will be as much fun as drinking it because once you add hot water to your cup, the pearls slowly unfurl and releases a charming aroma, as well as floral and smooth taste.
