China Dragon Phoenix Pearl Green Tea

Green Tea ChinaSince the Sung Dynasty over 800 years ago, Green Tea enriched with the fragrance of jasmine has been an all-time favorite. Dragon Phoenix Pearl gets its name from the visual characteristics of the tea bushes “climbing” the hillsides like a dragon coming out of the water.

The tea is picked in April/May and processed by hand. Once rolled, the tea is wrapped in silk mesh and dried by fire to set the form. The tea is then held until August/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. Order this truly remarkable China Dragon Phoenix Pearl Green Tea today!

Fun Fact: The Chinese Character for Tea

Tea originated in China thousands of years ago.  No one knows exactly when it became popular, but some legends date tea as far back as 2700 BC.  This makes it older than the Great Pyramids of Giza!

Despite its popularity, tea did not have its own unique character for hundreds of years.  In fact, it shared the same character with sow thistles and was only distinguished in pronunciation.  It wasn’t until around the year 750 AD that it developed its own character, but it has remained the same for nearly 1300 years!

Pronounced cha, the Chinese character for tea is a beautiful one that’s written from top to bottom.  The top strokes (shaped like an H) represent “grass” or “plant,” designating that tea comes from a plant.  This H-shaped stroke appears on related Chinese characters such as flower and petal.  Even if you don’t know Chinese, you can spot plant-related characters by this H-shape!
