The gift of tea is the gift of calm, nurturing conversation and good friends, or quiet solitude and the enjoyment of one's own company. There's a reason the Brits are passionate about their "cuppas."
Giving this particular green tea is to say "you deserve to drink tea that someone cared enough to roll by hand." To make this tea, the most tender green leaves and silvery down-covered buds in Fujian Province, China, are plucked, gently steamed, then hand rolled into small "pearls". Then the pearls go through a traditional scenting process to marry the tea with five times its weight in jasmine blossoms. Like jasmine blooms in the cool night air, Jasmine Jade Pearl tea is lavish with a glorious, heady scent.
Sloane Tea is an alliance of fine tea merchants specializing in premium teas sourced directly from point of origin, packaged in tins so beautiful it would be a shame to hide them in cupboards.
Each Sloane Tea is chosen from hundreds of tea gardens then carefully processed using centuries old artisanal techniques. The tea blends are custom created by their team of Certified Tea Sommeliers and culinary experts. To ensure the best possible balance of flavour and scent, Sloane Tea consulted with the Maître Nez (Head Nose) of one of France’s foremost perfumeries and trained at the Studio Des Fragrance in Grasse, France.
Needless to say, Sloane Tea takes its teas very seriously.
