Character: Pale green, smooth with delicate and exquisite Jasmine flavor. Each ball is made with spring production green leaf, only available for a few weeks per year, scented with fresh Jasmine. The long silvery leaves are carefully hand-tied in an intricate pattern that unfurls into a chrysanthemum like shape when infused. The resulting cup is at once light and profound with sweet notes of asmine and wisps of fresh honey.
