Fun to know: Dragon Tear Drop is a green tea made from the top two leaves and the bud of new season growth, usually around late March or early April. These delicate leaves are then hand rolled into the small pearls. When you infuse these pearls in your teacup, you will see the top two leaves and the bud come to life. In fact you will see some small ‘hairy down’ on the bud of the leaves - this denotes superb quality and very careful and delicate handling. The extraordinary flavour of these Dragon Tear Drop is due to the time of plucking and manufacture. The new season starts in China in late March or early April (dependent on weather patterns) and it is during the first 4 weeks that the best teas are manufactured. After this initial period the quality of the teas and green leaf start to deteriorate rapidly and the teas become quite plain.
