jasmine phoenix pearls (#12)
hand-made by farmer Lin Chui Feng in Fu Ding, Fu Jian Province
Perfumy hand-rolled tea from Fuding, in Fujian province, China. Any fan of jasmine tea should try this specially crafted wonder. When added to hot water, the pearls majestically unfurl, releasing their delicate scent and flavor. Sweet and almost sugary. Very soft, airy mouthfeel. The delicate quality of the flavor is due in part to the leaves used to produce this tea: two tender, tiny new leaves and one plump unopened leaf bud. Younger leaves will yield softer flavor.
Steep at 195° for 2-3 minutes.
