From the misty mountains of Fujian Province, China, the most tender tea leaves and buds are handpicked in the early spring and gently processed. The leaves are hand rolled into small balls the size of pearls. The enzymes are naturally de-activated, preserving the polyphenols and the strong antioxidant activity.
Flavor: Slight vegetal undertones with a crisp and intoxicating honey floral sweetness
Directions: Add the amount of botanicals per a recipe, as desired, or as directed by a health practitioner. The proper way of extracting botanicals depends on parts used. Flowers, fruits and leaves can usually be steeped or decocted (boiling over fire) while stems, barks and roots typically require decocting.
In a Desktop Botanical Garden™ Glass Tea & Elixir Maker, add 1 part botanical(s) and 5-8 parts water, steep or decoct for 5-20 minutes. You can boil water directly in the Elixir Maker. Repeat this process for 2nd or 3rd extraction until all active constituents have been extracted.Ingredients: Green Tea leaf, Jasmine flower
