What Storm have to say about their Jasmine Phoenix Eyes Tea:
This exotic and unusual tea comes from the province of Guangxi in China. This region has perfect climatic conditions for growing tea but is also well suited to jasmine cultivation, so here the two are brought together in these beautiful hand-crafted spheres that resemble phoenix eyes. They are created by selecting the youngest leaf tips which are hand rolled into small pearl or eye shaped spheres. During the drying period, the green tea phoenix eyes are layered with freshly picked blossoms which bestow the tea with a beautiful and unmistakable fragrance of jasmine. This perfuming process is repeated up to five times to reach the correct levels of floral intensity. This tea is perfect for refreshing the palate after spicy or garlic rich Asian food.
Good jasmine flavours sit well with the green tea astringency to create a nicely balanced and flavoursome brew. It should be enjoyed without milk but lends itself beautifully to iced tea.
