In the mountains of Yunnan Province in China’s Southwest, many inhabitants of the more remote
mountain villages believe that dragons did exist! Well, it is home to the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain
named for it’s resemblance to a dragon sleeping amongst the clouds.
The area is also home to some of the world’s finest green teas and at some point a tea producer decided to craft hand-rolled tea pearls and name them in tribute to the dragon of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. To this day, Dragon Peaches are produced by rolling fine, early season buds into tiny pearls that are dried at high heat to seal in the subtleties and nuances of the tea. A superb green tea with a sweet summer finish and a refreshing change from the better know jasmine pearls.
Beautifully presented in a lovely mini tin with colourful Chinese motif, this makes a superb gift.
