This is a very special type of premium blooming tea and truly one of a kind. Tea Shell Pearl gets its name from its appearance of a small bud or shell. This then unfurls to release the petals enclosed inside, similar to a clam opening up to release its hidden pearl.
Blossoming Tea Shell Pearl is part of the artisan family of teas. These are delicately made by hand straight after the green tea leaves are harvested. The leaves are intricately tied around chrysanthemum flowers and petals with cotton thread. This both helps the tea leaves to absorb the flowers’ sweet aroma and also creates a magnificent display when the buds are added to a glass teapot or glass with near boiling water.
Blossoming Tea Shell Pearl provides an elegant display that’s best shared with friends, both to enjoy watching the flowers and petals unfurl and for the refreshing, winter sweet taste of the tea produced.
