2020 Spring Harvest - Fuding, Fujian Province, China.
Young, sweet, spring-picked green tea buds naturally scented with fresh jasmine flowers over seven whole nights. The result is a vivid infusion with an enchanting aroma of sweet, fragrant jasmine perfume.
A fully handcrafted process taking place during the Spring Harvest, the gold medal jasmine pearls are a top-quality artisan tea. It is as much an elegant work of art as it is a delicious tea.
Gold medal pearls are entirely hand-rolled, made with Chinese artisan green tea which has been naturally scented with fresh jasmine blossoms. When the tea-making process is complete in the spring harvest, the finished green tea is carefully stored until summer when jasmine flowers start to bloom. Then the tea is layered with fresh jasmine blossoms allowing the oils of the flower to infuse into the tea. This natural scenting process is repeated several nights with fresh jasmine flowers each time until the aroma balance of the jasmine blossoms and green tea meets the standard of the skillful tea master.
The tea-making process is organic and without the use of pesticides and additives. Fuding in Fujian Province is renowned for its premium JasminePearls.
