Organic Dragon Phoenix Pearl Jasmine tea gets its name from the visual characteristics of the tea bushes climbing the hillsides like a Dragon coming out of the water. The women pickers, chosen specifically to pluck this type of tea, give the appearance of dancing phoenixes next to the Dragon's long slender body. The tea is grown in an area in Fuding City near the border of the Fujian and Jiangxi provinces. The area is mountainous and is often shrouded in clouds or fog. The tea is picked in Apriland May and held until August and September when the finest jasmine blossoms are in bloom. The jasmine flowers are picked before noon and set aside until evening when the petals begin to open in the cool night air. Once open, the "marrying" of the jasmine to the tea happens in two applications after which the jasmine petals are removed. When the petals are removed, women begin rolling each leaf and a bud into tiny pearl-sized balls. Once rolled, the tea is wrapped in silk mesh and dried by fire to set the form. According to analysis done by Chinese researchers, Dragon Phoenix Pearl has a higher concentration of Vitamin C and amino acids than other teas. Use 1 rounded teaspoon (3g) dry leaves per 6 ounces spring water heated to a temperature of 80° to 90° C. (180° to 195° F.), steeping for 4 minutes.  This tea can handle multiple infusions.ECOCERT issues your organic certification for the European market

I have been purchasing this Dragon Phoenix Pearl Jasmine tea for years, and it is definitely the best I've ever tasted. The scent of this tea once it has steeped is like aromatherapy - a wonderful start to the delicious flavour that follows. It has a smooth, delicate taste that lasts through multiple steepings (I normally get 3-4 steepings from a rounded teaspoon). My favourite on relaxing, weekend mornings. I will continue to purchase this delicious tea.

I have not tasted a better Dragon Phoenix Pearl from anyone. I was getting this tea from Rae long before any of the other online stores sold it.
