• Smooth and delicate with some body
Dragon Pearls are a green tea and are made from the top two leaves and the bud of new season growth (Late March /early April). These delicate leaves are then hand rolled into the small pearls. When you infuse these pearls in your tea cup, you will see the top two leaves and the bud come to life. In fact, you will see some small "hairy down" on the bud of the leaves, this denotes superb quality and very careful and delicate handling.

The extraordinary flavor of these Dragon Pearls is due to the time of plucking and manufacture. The new season starts in China in late March/early April (dependent on weather patterns) and it is during the first 4 weeks that the best teas are manufactured. After this initial period the quality of the teas and green leaf start to deteriorate rapidly and the teas become quite plain. Dragon Pearls are only made from tea plucked in the first 3 weeks of the new season.

Tea aficionados know that Chinese green teas such as Dragon Pearls are among the finest green teas produced. Clear and rich, they often have substantial body and pungency that belie their pale liquors. The aroma is sweet and floral, or like spring meadows or cool forests. After all, green teas are only steamed before drying and it is not surprising that good China greens such as this posses an ethereal but appetizing vegetative fragrance and flavor.

• full bodied, delicate flavor with toasty notes and sweet plum-like character
The shape of the leaves is reminiscent of an eyebrow, hence the word "mee" or "mei" which means eyebrow. Chunmee translated is "Precious Eyebrow." The leaves are hand-rolled in a traditional fashion and pan-fired requiring great skill since the final tea is considered a work of art. Patience, great hand coordination, temperature control and timing achieve a fine jade color leaf and mellow yellowish brew.

This tea reminds us of the "Tea Emperor" Song which notes "...it promotes such serenity that mundane cares fall away..." Truly a blessing. This same emperor had this to say about tea plucking, "Harvesting the leaves should begin well before day-break and stop shortly after. Picking must be done with the fingernails, not with the fingers, lest the freshness and taste be contaminated... Leaves of whitish color shaped like sparrows' tongues or grains of corn are best. One leaf per shoot is ideal; two leaves per shoot next best, if there are more, the product will be inferior."

• Smooth with delicate tea flavor and heavenly jasmine notes
Jasmine Dragon Tears are a green tea and are made from the top two leaves and the bud of new season growth (Late March /early April). These delicate leaves are then hand rolled into the small pearls. When you infuse these pearls in your tea cup, you will see the top two leaves and the bud come to life. In fact you will see some small `hairy down' on the bud of the leaves - this denotes superb quality and very careful and delicate handling.

The extraordinary flavor of these Jasmine Dragon Tears is due to the time of plucking, manufacture and the fresh spring jasmine blooms. The new tea season starts in China in late March/early April (dependent on weather patterns) and it is during the first 4 weeks that the best teas are manufactured. After this initial period the quality of the teas and green leaf start to deteriorate rapidly and the teas become quite plain. Dragon Pearls are only made from tea plucked in the first 3 weeks of the new season. Coinciding with the new tea growth, the jasmine bushes are in spring bloom. Only the most fragrant blossoms are used (from bushes that are known to produce the most fragrant flowers). These fresh flowers are layered between the tea and before long the intense and uplifting fragrance of the new jasmine blooms is passed on to the tea.

• Slightly piquant with an almost sweet honey-like flavor
The best Sichuan teas come from the central mountain peak of Mount Meng and this tea is grown on the southern and eastern slopes of this mountain. The heavy mists that surround Mount Meng and volcanic soils provide ideal growing for the special tea. A Ching dynasty record states that on one of the peaks in this mountain area there were 7 tea trees where a monk named Sweet Dew managed to gather only ninety leaves per year and made a most delicious tea. Though this is hard to believe, special tea from this mountain peak has always been scarce and is highly prized by connoisseurs everywhere.

The method of manufacture of this tea is quite interesting. The tea leaves are only plucked during the last 2 weeks of March and must be plucked before the rising sun dries the misty dew on the early morning leaves. The leaves are plucked every day and only new leaves that are less than 20 mm long are used. These leaves are lightly rolled to break the cells every so slightly, immediately steamed to stop any possibility of fermentation and then painstakingly hand formed and pressed before final drying. The result is an early morning fresh green tea with wonderful flavor and an extremely pale liquor.

• A hint of toastiness with a pleasant jammy-like character
The method of manufacture of this tea is quite interesting. The first and second leaf of new shoots are painstakingly plucked during the end of March and the first two weeks of April, (the bud is used to make special needle teas). These leaves are allowed to wither every so slightly steamed, and then hand rolled (lengthwise, where a few of the leaf cells are broken allowing some of the green tea flavor to develop). Following the rolling, the best leaves are selected and curled around a "beauty stick," pressed flat and then dried in a special oven to lock-in the flavor and preserve the unique shape. Note that the bottom of the new leaf is covered with a "new down." This signifies new, fresh and pure, characteristics that were held in high regard by those striving for ultimate beauty. There are only two villages in the Mount Meng region which make these teas. These two villages are the holders of the beauty sticks, sticks that the favorite consort of a 13th century Emperor blessed with her beauty.

Green tea, above all others has a very delicate flavor which is easily marred by the impurities in the water used for brewing it. In the Tang and Ching dynasties water filters were not available and teas were often as expensive as gold. In those days the wealthy tea drinker would bring water from afar (sometimes up to 1000 miles away). Lu Yu, the Tea God, declared, "Mountain spring water is best, river water is next best, well water is the poorest."

• Surprising body and a captivating floral character!
Green tea and jasmine - perfect companions!

This jasmine tea is an extremely popular and economical alternative to "whole herb" jasmine tea that contains very expensive jasmine flowers only. It is essentially a high quality green tea base that has been scented with premium jasmine flowers, and the spent jasmine blooms are added as a decorative element to the tea. Years ago, layering of the two different types of leaves was the common infusion process; today a more sophisticated hot air process is used allowing for reuse of spent blooms. The result is a green tea adorned with an exquisite floral character!

Obviously, the result is a milder jasmine tea as compared with true jasmine flower tea, and one cannot obtain similar medicinal properties as a true jasmine tea. In fact, green tea health benefits are more applicable to this particular tea, and the added sedative aroma of its floral companion is simply a wonderful bonus. After all, most of the purported benefits of jasmine are associated with its aromatic qualities! In a nutshell, this tea provides all the antioxidant goodness of a quality green tea with the relaxing properties of jasmine flower.

Jasmine tea is one of the most pleasant tasting green teas available on the market. On the nose, the dry tea has a floral bouquet which literally causes your senses to come alive with pleasant thoughts. The flavor is enhanced with the addition of jasmine blossoms which give the tea a visual appeal few other teas are capable of copying.

There are many different grades of jasmine tea. This particular grade is the first grade below the exotic jasmines. It has all the flavor, aroma and good green tea qualities but not the exorbitant price. In China they declare this jasmine tea as "Jasmine #1."

The production of jasmine tea, as touched upon earlier, is quite interesting. It is important to begin with high quality green tea - tea that has been produced between the middle of March and the middle of May. Equally important for jasmine tea are fine jasmine blossoms - flowers that bloom between the 1st of May and the end of May (these have the most intense aroma). Traditionally layers of jasmine blossoms were placed between fine green tea. In time the scent of the jasmine permeated the tea. Today, hot air is passed through the jasmine blossoms and then filtered through the tea so that the blossoms can be used more than once. The exhausted blossoms are then used to decorate the tea. Produced in both China and Taiwan, jasmine tea yields a cup with all the concentrated heady bouquet of a garden in bloom.

Osmanthus tea is produced in a similar fashion to jasmine tea. A layer of osmanthus blooms are placed between the fresh tea leaves and the delicate scent of osmanthus is allowed to permeate the tea. Following this, most of the osmanthus blooms are blended into the tea to enhance the visual appeal and boost the flavor. Osmanthus blooms are very delicate and the aroma from the blossoms is equally delicate resulting in mild peach flavor notes on the tea.

• Surprising body and an intense but captivating floral perfume
This Jasmine is an exceptionally well-made tea. The leaves have a very tight and wiry roll with an over abundance of white mottled tips. The "tippy" nature of the tea signifies a superior tea. "Tip" is only possible when the estate practices fine plucking and a 3 or 4 day plucking rotation. The mottled effect is from teas that are plucked in the first 2-4 weeks of the new season when the days are warm but the night temperatures are piercingly cool. Further into the season when the evenings are warm as well, the bush grows 24 hours per day eliminating the possibility of fine plucking. The quality of this exceptional jasmine evokes adjectives such as complex, subtle and mystery from long-unopened jewelry boxes.

New jasmine blossoms become available about mid-May. The new blossoms have the most intense fragrance. After the blossoms are layered between the fine green teas, slightly warmed air is drawn through the layered tea. The delicate fragrance of the blossoms impart itself on the tea. Interestingly jasmine blossoms are used about 9 times. It is only during the 2nd use of the Jasmine blossoms that this tea is made. Each time the Jasmine is used the flavor becomes less delicate and subtle. The more common grades of Jasmine contain the flowers. You will note that this tea has virtually no flower petals, an additional sign of superb quality.

Lucky Dragon Hyson Tea (Loose) 4 oz 510618 $14.10
8 oz 510619 $22.22

• A fresh, greenish taste
Hyson translates to "Flourishing Spring" and this particular varietal imparts the fresh green character you would expect to be a part of any springtime tea experience. Traditionally, hyson referred to old to medium leaves (leaves below the new growing shoots at the top of the bush) manufactured in a rolled long twisted and sometimes almost clam shaped. The term "young" was added to the nomenclature to distinguish that the tea was made from young leaves (new shoots) and therefore better quality and better tasting. This tea became so highly favored in the 1700's that the British Tea Tax was actually higher for this variety over other teas. Lucky Dragon is from a specific factory that further identified their tea because even though produced in the young hyson style it is much better than typical young hyson.

Right from the first sale of tea in England in the mid 1600's, the English took a shine to tea. The government quickly realized the possibilities and levied taxes on tea that remained until the late 1700's. With all the associated taxes on tea and young hyson being taxed even higher, there were all sorts of various schemes done to dodge the taxes. Servants in upper class homes would dry the used leaves and resell them. Other unscrupulous people would "cut" the tea with leaves from various trees such as beech or hawthorn. Smuggling China teas into England reached a feverish peak in the mid 1700's and the ports of France and Belgium were used as the jump-off points for night voyages to Cornwall and Wales. The chancellor of the exchequer and the East India Company were aware of the extent of their losses and realized that only a large tax cut would make legal imports competitive with contraband tea. This finally occurred in 1784 with the passing of the Commutation Act.

Product Name Size ZIN Price Quantity Add to Cart
Jasmine Silver Balls Tea (Loose) 4 oz 510596 $48.25
8 oz 510597 $84.88

• A smooth and delicate jasmine flavor
Jasmine Slivering Balls are hand rolled and hand tied. The method used to make these special Jasmine tea balls is:
  • they begin with specially selected tea leaves (Leaves that are long and mottled white)
  • the leaves are then tied together and the centre leaves are cut and the outer leaves remain long
  • the outer leaves are then carefully and painstakingly rolled into a tight ball
  • the tea is steamed and dried with fresh jasmine flowers which impart the delicate flavor and aroma
The dry leaf appearance of the tea balls is tending towards a mottled and white appearance, indicating very early new season tea and extremely careful plucking and manufacture. (New season tea of this quality is rare and only available for 2-3 weeks each year!)

When you place a Jasmine ball in your cup you will see the outer leaves begin to uncurl. Once the infusion time is complete the tea looks like a chrysanthemum flower with long petals on the outside and the short petals on the inside. The chrysanthemum implies tranquillity, beauty, longevity and rejuvenateth.

White Monkey Paw Tea (Loose) 4 oz 510612 $69.38
8 oz 510613 $123.51

• A delicate but intense full green flavor
White Monkey Paw is made from the top two leaves and the bud of new season growth (late March /early April). These delicate leaves are gently and gingerly steamed and dried so the end result is an exquisite hand-made green tea. You will see that the leaves still have the "hairy down" on them which indicates that these leaves were plucked very early in the morning and within the first two weeks of the new season of growth. When you infuse these teas you will witness the delicate two leaves and a bud uncurl in your cup almost coming back to life! The dry leaf appearance of these teas is tending white and said to resemble a monkey paw. Even though this is a green tea, the visual appearance and cup liquor is so delicate that is can also be almost considered a white tea.

The most famous Chinese description of the joys of drinking tea is by Lu Tong, a Tang dynasty (A.D. 618-907) poet:

The first cup caresses my dry lips and throat;
The second shatters the walls of my lonely sadness,
The third searches the dry rivulets of my soul to find the stories of five thousand scrolls,
With the fourth the pain of past injustice vanishes through my pores.
The fifth purifies my flesh and bone.
With the sixth I am in touch with the immortals.
The seventh gives such great pleasure I can hardly bear.
The fresh wind blows through my wings
As I make my way to Penglai...

• Light liquoring with excellent green tea flavor
Every now and then one comes across a tea that is quite unique. This is one of these teas. After the first 3 weeks of the new season, the tea used to produce the silver balls grows (but this special tea only grows until May 10th). Over the years special bushes which have a higher than usual incidence of mottled and "white" leaves have been cloned and planted in one location of the tea estate. The leaves of these bushes grow longer more quickly and are covered with hairy white down giving them a silver appearance. The top two leaves and the bud are plucked. The long leaves are hand rolled lengthwise, one by one! A group of them are tied together, the leaves in the middle of the cluster are clipped short (being careful to leave the outer leaves full length) and then the long outer leaves and molded over the short clipped middle leaves into the shape of a ball. The silver balls are then wrapped in a individual mesh covering and steamed to halt any possible fermentation. The mesh is then removed and the silver balls are re-wrapped in special paper so when they dry the beautiful round shape is maintained. When the tea is infused the silver ball "blooms," so to speak, and final shape is that of a chrysanthemum flower.

Green tea, above all others has a very delicate flavor which is easily marred by the impurities in the water used for brewing it. In the Tang and Ching dynasties water filters were not available and teas were often as expensive as gold. In those days the wealthy tea drinker would bring water from afar (sometimes up to 1000 miles away). Lu Yu, the Tea God, declared, "Mountain spring water is best, river water is next best, well water is the poorest."

There are many legends of the origin of tea. One such legend says that the founder of the Zen Buddhism cult, Saint Bodhidharma, once fell asleep during his meditation. When he awoke, he was so embarrassed that he decided to cut off his eye lids as an act of penance. "Cast to the ground, the severed eye lids grew into a tea plant which, when brewed, could banish sleep."

8 oz 510603 $28.42

• Surprising body and an almost nutty green tea taste
Legend has it that the name Gunpowder was given by an young English clerk who thought the tiny rolled green balls looked like gunpowder. The tea leaves are specially selected for quality, size and style. They are then rolled into very small tight nuggets. Gunpowder tea keeps a lot longer than other green teas and is favored because of this characteristic. Chinese exporters recommend gunpowder for iced tea flavored with lemon and sugar. Gunpowder tea is also very popular in Morocco where the leaves are boiled and mint and sugar are added.

Pinhead Gunpowder Pingshui tea comes from the province of Zhejiang across Hangzhou Bay from Shanghai. It was in Hangzhou that Mao Tse Tung (China's first leader on modern times) first met with Richard Nixon (President of the United States). This 1973 meeting which included gunpowder tea was the beginning of normalized relations between China and the United States.

The leaves for Pinhead Gunpowder are only plucked during April and May when the quality of the green leaf is at it's highest. The leaves are steamed and tightly rolled in a time honored process. When preparing this tea, part of the ritual is to take two pinches of Pinhead Gunpowder and drop them into a porcelain cup so you hear the jingle and tinkle of the leaves hitting the sides. Boiling water causes them to open up like flowers and sink slowly to the bottom in graceful patterns which add a dimension of visual pleasure to tea drinking. This gunpowder produces a reasonably strong dark-green brew with a memorable fragrance, a slightly bitter but not unpleasant flavor and a long lasting finish. Gunpowder is more dense than other teas so if you are making a teapot full you only require one or two teaspoons for a teapot.

Chinese researchers have found that gunpowder tea is high in fluoride and can be used to help support cavities. They say that a human body requires 1-2 milligrams of fluoride a day. Ten grams of gunpowder tea (enough to make 3 cups of strong tea) can supply this amount.

• Abundant jasmine character on a seasonal green tea
Organic tea is produced without the input of chemical fertilizers or pesticides and herbicides. Unfortunately the yield per acre is lower and quite often quality can suffer compared to when fertilizers and others inputs are utilized. Nevertheless with good manufacturing techniques the cup characteristics can be maintained at a very high level. Such is the case with this tea.

This tea is a particularly good jasmine, hence the moniker Gold Dragon, (gold means wealth, prosperity, money and dragon means long life and strength). The jasmine tree comes into bloom only during May and June. The blossom only lasts for about 12 hours and only comes out at night after the sun goes down. About half way through the night the fragrance is at its peak and it is at this time the blossoms need to be picked and layer into the tea. By the morning most of the fragrance has disappeared from the blossom. But if the tea maker has done his job correctly, this heavenly scent has been transferred to the tea and captured in time. This process is carried out on 5 successive evenings to impart the superior flavor of specially selected tea and jasmine flowers.

In China during the Sung Dynasty (960 to 1127), tea drinking rose to an art form. The harvesting of tea became closely regulated. Drum and cymbal signals were used to coordinate the tea pluckers during chilly dark pre-dawn hours. The tea pickers (always young virgins) received special training and even wore identification labels on the clothing so that tea thieves could be readily identified if they entered the estates. The girls were required to keep finger nails at a precise length, since nails, never the finger, were used to pluck the highest quality tea leaves. The fresh picked leaves were graded into classes and processed. The choice grade was delivered as tribute tea for the Emperor, while the rest was traded and sold by the regional government. A handful of tea of the choicest grade could be worth as much as 3 ounces of gold - virtually a lifetime of earnings for the common man.

• Surprising body and a captivating taste
Organic tea is produced without the input of chemical fertilizers or pesticides and herbicides. Unfortunately the yield per acre is lower and quite often quality can suffer compared to when fertilizers and others inputs are utilized. Nevertheless with good manufacturing techniques the cup characteristics can be maintained at a very high level. Such is the case with this tea.

This tea is a classic top quality Gunpowder (marked as Osprey the high soaring bird of prey, the pinnacle) with good green tea taste properties, slightly vegetative but refreshing and clean.

Superior quality gunpowder tea comes from the province of Zhejiang in China and from Taiwan. This particular tea comes from a tea estate west of Hangzhou in the hill country of Zhejiang province. The green leaf for this tea is plucked during April, corresponding to the time of the best quality. Legend has it that the name Gunpowder was given by a young English clerk who thought the tiny rolled green balls looked like gunpowder. The Chinese name for Gunpowder Tea is Siaou Chu, which literally means large leaf. Rolling the leaf has two effect on quality of the tea. It forces to the surface flavorful juices that otherwise would remain in the leaf. Rolling also forces out water, thus helping to reduce the tea's final moisture content. The pellet retains its shape during firing and keeps its freshness longer than tea not manufactured in pellet form.

• Full green tea flavor with delicate pungency and body
Organic tea is produced without the input of chemical fertilizers or pesticides and herbicides. Unfortunately the yield per acre is lower and quite often quality can suffer compared to when fertilizers and others inputs are utilized. Nevertheless with good manufacturing techniques, the cup characteristics can be maintained at a very high level. Such is the case with this tea.

This tea is a top quality Green Tea (Pearl River signifies very important, master quality, cleanliness and good health). This superior quality Pearl River is exceptionally well graded with even curly leaf. Interestingly only the best leaves are able to achieve this particular curl and to sort these leaves from the rest of the leaf production the estate hand sorts! This literally means that the tea is spread out on a table and the leaves are picked out, one by one! The best tea is made during March and April when the tea bush re-emerges from its winter dormancy and expends all its spring energy into growing the new shoots. The estate employs fine plucking techniques which is to say that only the top two leaves and the new bud is taken. Further, the plucking only takes place in the pre-dawn, when the leaf is covered with a misty dew which improves the taste and imparts a fullness to the tea character.

The quality of the water and it's affects on tea are legendary. Lu Yu, the father of Chinese tea (Cha'CHing or Book of Tea written in 780 AD), stated that water was of utmost importance. On a trip on the Yangtze River as a guest of a dignitary, Lu Yu asked have tea made with water drawn from the center of the river which was the cleanest and tastiest. After taking a sip Lu Yu said in disgust that the water was from the river bank. The man responsible denied this, upon which Lu Yu retasted the tea and declared that perhaps the man was correct but the water was inferior. The man then acknowledged that after he had drawn the water from the center of the river, some had spilled on the return trip to shore and the jar was topped up with water from midstream. Just before the dignitary had the man put to death for such great embarrassment, the man declared "Master Lu. you are clearly immortal."

• Delicious green tea character with fruity-like flavor
Organic tea is produced without the input of chemical fertilizers or pesticides and herbicides. Unfortunately the yield per acre is lower and quite often quality can suffer compared to when fertilizers and others inputs are utilized. Nevertheless with good manufacturing techniques the cup characteristics can be maintained at a very high level. Such is the case with this tea.

This tea is a top quality Green Tea (Peacock #1 showy, beauty, importance, good luck) with good green tea taste properties, slightly vegetative and fruity, but refreshing and clean.

This superior quality Peacock #1 tea is exceptionally well graded. It is said that if you look closely at the infused leaf you will see the fan of the peacock's tail feathers. This tea has a delightful fruity-like character which is on account of the plucking and time of year it is grown. The finest crop is plucked in the early season (March/April), before the May rains have swelled the tender leaves and the sun noon day sun stresses the tea bush to the point where it affects the flavor. This tea is plucked in the early season as the sun is just beginning to rise above the horizon. Plucking of new leaf is generally carried out by women who get up at 3 to 4 am and walk in groups to the fields. On the way they risk encounters with poisonous snakes and "nasty" insects. To keep their spirits up they often sing songs such about their dreams and their loves. The last 2 lines of a popular Zhejiang folk song go as follows, "My spirit in a tizzy, I ordered that young man, by all means to await me in my dreams to come."

• Sweet, almost honey-like notes
Organic tea is produced without the input of chemical fertilizers or pesticides and herbicides. The yield per acre is lower compared to when fertilizers and others inputs are utilized. Nevertheless with good manufacturing techniques the cup characteristics can be maintained at a high level. Such is the case with this tea.

The two peaks of Mt. Tianmu are famous for its scenery and misty covered slopes. The tea bushes grow in the valleys, where it is misty three quarters of the time (tea cannot grow on the summit because it is too windy). This gives the tea its unmistakable taste and visual appearance. This tea is manufactured under shou-mei principles, those being sun-dried and subjected to a minimum amount of processing so the tea's color and aroma are as close as possible to those of fresh leaves. You can see evidence of this in the leaf appearance, the leaves are virtually whole with many bud sets and slight "hairy" down, indicative of very careful hand rolling and superior hand sorting.

The Ming Dynasty ruled China between 1368 and 1644, almost 300 years. Under its rule a very important institution, The Horse and Tea Bureau, played a vital role in the economy. The demand for tea became so great it ranked as one of the empires most valuable commodities. The Bureau became responsible for bartering tea for horses. They created incentives for the farmers to grow tea by reducing the tax to 1% (the farmers would allocate 1% of their crop to the state). It was during the Ming Dynasty that tea was first introduced to Europe. For a time rumors circulated in Europe that tea weakened a person's vitality and was being exported from China to sap the energy from it potential enemies. Ironically, it would come to pass that England would trade for tea, opium truly sapping the energies of those that used the drug.
