Chinese Green Tea

Jasmine Dragon Tears Significance:

Handmade Chinese green tea made from the top two leaves and a bud during the first growth of the season during late March or early April. The remaining downy hairs are an indicator of quality, illustrating the light touch during plucking and rolling. Fresh Jasmine flowers are layered between layers of tea to impart flavor and aroma. Jasmine Dragon Tears, or Jasmine Pearl Tea balls, unfurl beautifully while they are infused in hot water.

Step 1:
Add boiling water to mug and allow the water to cool to 170°-185° or simply wait 2-5 minutes.
Step 2:
Steep 1 round tsp or 3-4 grams of tea per 8 oz of water.
Step 3:
Steep for 3-5 minutes. Green teas often have substantially different character depending on the time and temperature used for steeping so experiment with water throughout the range. Try 2-3 steepings. Great candidate for cold brewing.

  • Delicate, aromatic

    This is a wonderful spring/summer tea. Just the right infusion of jasmine flowers to lend a delicate perfume to the taste and aroma of this luscious tea. These green tea leaves are smooth. If you brew it at the correct temperature and time you have all the sweet flavor of green tea with none of the grassy undertones. Highly recommend.

  • Perfect

    fresh green tea leaves and the richness of the flavor on a warm cup! u will only need a tablespoon of these tea balls and you'll have the perfect taste on 2 cups, to be shared on this winter season or anytime of the year. i have recommended this to my friends who are also trying to lose weight since green tea boosts the metabolism and has lotta benefits for the health. i myself drink this every breakfast, surely a lot healthier than a cappuccino at starbucks
