This famous hand-rolled White Tea from the Fujian province has been produced this way for over 100 years. We are delighted to welcome this speciality back as it has been a long time since we last had some. Plus, it's Organic, making it very unusual and much sought after. The still slightly damp 'two leaves and a bud' are carefully rolled into these exquisite silvery pearls. Watch them carefully unfurl, like newly hatched dragons, once placed in hot water gently releasing a wonderful bouquet and a light, mild, refreshing sweetish flavour. As with all green and white teas, hot never boiling water and re-infuse 4 or 5 times. I would use 10-12 pearls per individual serving, they would look lovely in a glass teapot or glass cup, helping you to see the unfurling of the leaves, a contemplative moment of Zen. Whilst not cheap, an experience this fine should have some worth.
You will receive 20 grams of this tea for £5.00 (over 100 pearls) this will allow you to make a between 10 cups and 40-50 cups of tea. Two grams per cup, this works out at between fifty pence and twelve-ten pence per cup when re-infused. We also sell larger quantities of this tea at a more economical rate; the price will therefore be lower.
