Sloane Jasmine Jade Pearl Tea
The most tender green tea leaves and silvery down-covered buds are gently steamed after plucking, hand-rolled into small "pearls" and scented with fresh jasmine blossoms.
This tea from Fujian Province, China, undergoes a traditional scenting process whereby the tea is married with five times its weight in jasmine blossoms. The flowers blossom in the cool night air and leave behind their lavish and intoxicating fragrance.
When steeped as an iced tea, it very simply transforms into a remarkably refreshing thirst-quencher.
TEA PROFILE Golden ivory liquor, light-bodied, flowery and fresh with a lengthy jasmine linger.
TASTE AND STRENGTH Truly refreshing and fragrant.
WHEN TO DRINK Ideal at any time of day.
STEEPING INSTRUCTIONS For best results, steep 1 teaspoon per 12 ounces of water that has just come off the boil for 3-4 minutes, depending on taste.
