Mountain Pearls Loose Tea
Out of stock
We've sourced our exquisite Mountain Pearls from Fujian Province in South East China where oolong tea first originated. Dramatically different from richly roasted “dark” oolongs, high grown oolongs tend to have a sweet, floral quality and creamy mouthfeel, and this tea is an excellent example.
Similar in style to the famous Tieguanyin oolong tea of Anxi, the dewy, springlike freshness is matched by a full bodied, creamy mouthfeel. The pearls can be steeped multiple times; we'd recommend trying this tea as a cold brew infusion to bring out the clear sweetness of the leaves.

The famous tea growing province of Fujian is traditionally described as "8 parts mountain, one part water and one part farmland". That adds up to 10 parts in total, so we thought we’d choose the number 10 for our Mountain Pearls. It’s a nice round number after all…

Teaspoons (2 grams)
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.
Pearls of Wisdom
Our Mountain Pearls are created through a process of partial oxidation carefully controlled by artisan tea masters. The leaves are heated and rolled multiple times over a period of several days, producing delicate pearls which unfurl during the infusion to reveal large jade-green leaves.
