China Dragon Pheonix Pearl
From the mountains near the Chinese city of Funding comes this fine green tea. Each tea leaf and bud is picked in April/May and then rolled by hand into tiny pearl sized balls which are wrapped in silk mesh and set to form in a fire-drying process. When jasmine blossoms are in full bloom in August/September, they are layered with the tea and “married” to create a green tea whose concentrations of Vitamin C and amino acids surpass any other teas. This fine fragrant tea, a tea-drinker’s favorite for hundreds of years, has a great aroma, a smooth finish, and a flavor that is both vegetal and fruity.
