Jasmine Dragon Tears (organic)
After a hiatus while we sourced a new garden for this tea, it’s back! And unlike before, we have found an organic cultivation. Very high quality green tea leaf which is hand-rolled into tears. You may have also heard them described as balls or pearls. They open into fragrant long green leaf tendrils once water is poured over. Very fragrant and smooth palate. Calming and contemplative. An aromatic tea with lighter body texture. Can be resteeped multiple times.
Ingredients: Organic hand-rolled green tea, organic jasmine.
Caffeine Content: Low
Water Temperature: 90C/195F
Steep Time: 1 min. (don't discard leaves as tea can be resteeped 5-6 times.)
One teaspoon per 8 ozs water
"This traditional tea is bursting with flavour, longevity, and delight! When it comes to green tea, I prefer it lightly brewed, and only steep the leaves for a maximum of 2 minutes. If a strong cup of green tea is your preference, place the leaves directly into your cup and add the water. The dragon tears will sink to the bottom of your cup and then begin to unfurl before your eyes. Do not throw the leaves away after one steep! Unlike some other tea blends, this tea will keep on giving, offering you the opportunity to re-steep many times!" - Patrice, tea tender 2010-2019
