Steeped 6 pearls in water that was a little too cool. It’s a little tricky, as I’m in a hotel room so my water comes from the coffee pot. (I know, I know). It took about 5 minutes for there to be any evidence of a liqueur.
Jasmine-y, but the tea taste is not completely lost. Like it! Will do a second steep very shortly, as I have just about downed this mug.
Dragon Pearls (Long Zhu)
From Fujian Province, our pearls are picked early in the harvest and show a light downy color over light green leaves. The aroma is subtle yet unmistakable. Hand rolled, the pearls unfurl slowly showing delicate leaves that cup to a pronounced sweet liquor. Brew in water temperature of 175–190 degrees.
