    Jasmine Dragon Pearl is an artisan green tea, infused with freshly picked jasmine blossoms.
    During the process of scenting, the tea leaf is exposed to some heat. Because of that the tea which is used for production of jasmine tea is only partially finished leaf called “Zao Pei”.
    Zao Pei is then fused with fresh jasmine blossoms and layered like a cake for several weeks with a repeated turning to avoid heat building up. Each day at dawn the jasmine blossoms open and scent the tea. Each day the used jasmine buds are replaced with new ones. This is very laborious process that takes time and effort. Traditional crafting of jasmine tea is by using fresh flowers not artificial perfumes or essential oils and the flowers are being removed afterwards. The tea leaves are then delicately rolled into beautiful little pearls that unfurl when steeped into hot water.

"Litlle Poetry" by JD

"You run through the knee high grass, up to the hill
You hear them laughing behind, but they don't know your intentions
You run as fast as you can
With short breaths you smell the mellow grassy sweetness, but mostly you smell the strong jasmines all around the crooked stone wall
They are so sweet and strong they fuzz your brain like sticky glue
You reach the top, your calves are shaking; you look down just to see your friends slowly walking up.
You take a deep breath in and shout fully from your overworked lungs
“Mazzletov” and throw yourself on your side to roll back down like a child
Everything blurs and spins, but you feel invigorated, inspired, and alive.
The smell of jasmine is everywhere as you tumble
You reached the bottom of the hill
Dizzy, but uplifted; you felt like eight years old again, even if you are over thirty."
