A perfumy tea from the Fujian province of China, infused with the delicate scent of jasmine flowers. Sweet cup, notes of warmed sugar and jasmine in bloom on a summer evening. Slightly toasty like a fresh biscuit. Light, refreshing cup and not overwhelmingly floral. A perfect introduction to our selection of excellent jasmine teas.
fresh from origin
Jasmine tea production is a two-step process. The tea is harvested and finished in the spring, then carefully stored until the summer, when the jasmine starts to bloom at night. Each evening, the tea is carefully layered with fresh blooms, which will open and give their scent to the tea. In the morning, the flowers are removed and the process is repeated again that evening. This happens several nights in a row, until the tea master has the aroma balance just right. At the end, the tea is refired to dry off any flower moisture imparted to the leaf. This is why some jasmines can have a toasty finish.
