Chinese Green Tea
In northern Fujian Province, China, Jasmine Pearls are produced using just the bud of the tea bush. Harvested in spring and pan fired to neutralize their oxidizing enzyme, the slender green buds are rolled into tiny pearls and stored until July, when the jasmine flowers begin to bloom. The pearls are then layered between just-picked jasmine blossoms. This scenting process can be repeated up to four times before the spent jasmine is removed to create the finest tea.
Fujian Province is one of the most famous tea growing regions located on the southeast coast of China. Black, white and oolongs teas are all thought to have originated from this province. With Taiwan so close in proximity, there has been much sharing of knowledge between the two in terms of tea plants and production. Jasmine Pearls begin their production in April and are finished in June and July.
