These fresh flowers are layered between the tea leaves and the intense and uplifting fragrance of the new jasmine blooms is passed on to the tea. These delicate leaves are then hand rolled into the small pearls. When you infuse these pearls in your tea cup, you will see the top two leaves and the bud come to life. In fact you will see some small "hairy down" on the bud of the leaves - this denotes superb quality and very careful and delicate handling. Much more delicate and refined than other jasmines you may have tried. This tea is good for four or more steepings.
