Summer in subtropical Fujian, when the monsoons are at bay, is the only time of year to pick the night blooming, Arabic jasmine that gives this green tea its exquisite fragrance. Unopened buds are laid over beds of Fujian green tea leaves and left to blossom overnight. Every evening, the spent blooms are replaced with a fresh harvest. This is repeated four or five times until the leaves are finally rolled with fresh jasmine into tender pearls. The result is a smooth, sweet and viscous liquor with a distinct jasmine fragrance lingering well after your first sip.
Tasting Notes (6/18/2020):
The fresh jasmine smell is intoxicatingly sweet. Not rolled as tightly as last year's harvest. The tea liquor is cooling and refreshing.
