Two leaves and a bud make up each gently hand-rolled tea pearl; hand rolling helps to preserve the natural oils present in the leaves. Prior to this, the tea leaves are heat-infused with jasmine blossoms 8-10 times over the course of several nights, in order to achieve the desired strength of Jasmine aroma. While green teas are made at various times during the year, the most flavorful ones are typically plucked in the spring. The most fragrant jasmine flowers, however blossom in the summer; therefore a lot of skill is required by Jasmine Pearl tea makers to strike a good balance between the leaves and the flowers.
