Dragon Phoenix Pearl

Dragon Phoenix Pearl gets its name from the visual characteristics of the tea bushes "climbing" the hillsides like a Dragon coming out of the water. The tea is picked in April/May and is processed by hand, by rolling each leaf and a bud into tiny pearl size balls. Once rolled, the tea is wrapped in silk mesh and dried by fire to set the form. The tea is then held until August/September when the finest jasmine blossoms are in bloom. The two are married together and the result is amazing!
