With a history dating back over 1000 years, tender organic green tea leaves are kissed with fragrant organic jasmine blossoms over time to create an exquisite imperial tea once enjoyed only by the emperors. The making of jasmine pearls is one of the most intense and time consuming processes in the world of tea making. The leaves are harvested in the prime spring picking season and are rested until the harvest of fragrant jasmine vines in late summer. The prepared leaf readily absorbs the delightful perfume emanating from fresh jasmine blossoms over the course of several hours to several days based on the tea maker's desire. Once infused with the ethereal essence of jasmine blossoms, the leaves are hand-rolled into small pearls that bloom to reveal a smooth and enticing jasmine flavor.
This reusable round gift tin contains 2.5 ounces of loose leaf tea, yielding approximately 25 eight-ounce servings plus 2-3 re-steeps.
