The extraordinary White Dragon Pearl is a delicate hand rolled white tea. Each is individually handcrafted with care into a medium sized “pearl” (~3-4g each) that gently unfurls as you steep it. Fine white tea from China’s coastal Fujian Province is known for its excellent standard of quality due to the high elevation tea gardens that are shrouded in cool mist with abundant clean air- these tea gardens produce some of the world’s finest white tea.
The tea is picked in a ratio of just two leaves to every bud, following a strict quality and tasting standards introduced during the Ming Dynasty. Processing of the tea is kept to a minimum, with the freshly plucked leaves and buds hand-rolled, dried and withered almost immediately after picking!
Once steeped, the result is a delicate, fine flowery white tea with a mild flavor, and a gentle fruit blossom finish. White Dragon Pearl has a taste that is much more delicate than a Bai Hao Yin Zhen, or Bai Mu Dan.
