Long Zhu-Jasmine Dragon Pearl-Premium
Other Names: Mo Li Long Zhu, Dragon Phoenix Pearl, Dragon Pearl
Grade: Premium, Scented for 4 times.
The most popular of all scented teas. This stunning tea has an intense flavour and the beautiful aroma of jasmine. Dragon pearl are created by rolling specially plucked long downy shoots into little silvery “pearls” which are naturally scented multiple times with fresh, aromatic jasmine flowers.
It is named after the pearl like shape of the tea. Each small pearl is hand rolled. The tea is made by laying fresh jasmine petals atop the tea leaves, then tea leaves atop more petals, and so on. Up to six layers of blossoms alternating with tea leaves are used to create the highest-quality jasmines, using flowers picked at their aromatic peak. When the jasmine scent is fully merged with the leaves, the petals are removed, and the tea carefully dried again.
