What a gem!! Two leaves and a bud are hand plucked for this organic green tea. It is smooth, sweet and soft and naturally scented through a traditional manufacturing process. Tea leaves are laid out , then fresh jasmine flower blossoms are laid upon them. When the blossoms open, they impart their jasmine scent onto the leaves. This process is repeated numerous times for several days to weeks until the tea master is satisfied. Leaves are then rolled into pearls and the scent is locked in.
Have a little fun: a prime pluck is two leaves and bud. Once the leaves have unfurled in your cup, pull some out and take a look. Just know that someone hand plucked those leaves!

My first encounter with jasmine pearl tea was in Northern Thailand on a tea plantation near Chaing Rai. I have been enjoying this since and this is every bit as good as the tea from Mae Salong.
