A true white tea, hand-picked, hand-selected, meticulously perfumed, and then sorted twice (by size) in the mountainous Fuding, Fujian Province.
A few of the finest fragrant leaves are selected and deftly hand-rolled into a tight pearl, sealing the sweet scent deep within the leaves. Scenting is absorbed in 4 hours with 7 cycles. When submerged in hot water, these hand-rolled fragrant pearls unfurl seductively in your cup, releasing their enchanting jasmine perfume. The rolled shape helps prevent oxidation (loss of precious essential oils and flavours) and ensures longer optimal maturation. Make in a glass teapot for optimum enjoyment.
Scented seven times in the imperial custom, this premier grade of white tea, comprised entirely of handpicked top leaves and buds, is covered with silvery white down. Its composition is both white and light green leaves with exquisite subtle cup.
This blend can be steeped multiple times – infuse for 3 minutes, followed by a second steeping for 4 minutes 30 seconds, and subsequent steepings to taste.
Jasmine blossoms are picked during the heat of the day, when the flowers are closed tight. The scenting is done in the cool of the evening when the blossoms open, releasing their intoxicating scent. The blossoms are heaped in piles next to the drying tealeaves, which absorb the fragrance of the jasmine. This process is repeated up to seven times for the most prized jasmine teas.
With its white tea character, oversteeping is acceptable – infuse for 3 minutes followed by a second steeping for 4 minutes 30 seconds.
Best made with reverse osmosis water (with low mineral content) to appreciate the soft-mouth feel.
