Himalayan Pearls are steamed and rolled green tea with a captivating floral and lightly toasted aroma. Dark green, chlorophyll-rich, one or two leaves and a bud are plucked to make this special tea. Its smooth green liquor has well-developed notes of artichoke hearts and dried magnolia. As the tender leaves unfurl, delicate hints of bean sprouts, pine nuts, and steamed asparagus develop. This tea’s captivating aroma and liquor will make you want to enjoy the tea more.
Tender one or two first leaves and a bud from select bushes with darker green leaves, which generally have a higher chlorophyll content, are selected from the garden for the preparation of our steamed Green Pearls. The leaves are withered gently for around 2 hours under cool conditions with good air circulation, then jet steamed under perforated trays. The newly steamed leaves are immediately cooled and rolled with a machine roller for 30 minutes. The leaves are allowed to rest for around 30 minutes and then shaped into small pearls. Shaping is carried out in a shaping machine and then finally dried in an oven dryer for around 1.5 hours at 110 Degree Celsius.
