China, Fujian Guangxi

The region of Fujian is one of the most important in the world of tea, both in terms of total production and also for the number of high-quality artisanal teas developed there. Fujian is quite mountainous, and the climate is moderate and warm, with abundant rain – ideal conditions for tea. The jasmine flower plant grows in Guangxi at very high elevation. It’s believed to have been introduced into China from Persia more than 1700 years ago. The young tea leaves are picked in early spring to make green tea and hand-rolled into small pearls and kept in cold storage until when Jasmine flowers bloom. The fresh blossoms are picked and night when they are opened and fragrant and placed on the tea and mixed for hours to infuse the pearls with their scent.
