A speciality of Fujian Province in China, our artisan Jasmine Dragon Pearls have been crafted with extraordinary skill, rolling the youngest green tea leaves by hand and layering them up to six times with fresh jasmine blossoms, ready to absorb their fragrant oil as the buds begin to open at dusk. The pearly leaves unfurl like blossoms in the infusion, creating a beautifully light and aromatic brew which releases layers of flavour with each steeping. You'll find it's the perfect tea for enjoying over the course of the day, and we tend to brew a fresh pot as an after-dinner palate-cleanser.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.
Green tea's fresh, verdant taste is down to its processing: the leaves are heated shortly after picking, stopping the oxidation process that would eventually turn them into black tea. Some of the best green teas are found in Japan and China, where the techniques of firing or steaming the leaves have been perfected over many centuries. Find out more about green tea here.
