Our Jasmine green tea is very tasty and flavorful, with green tea and jasmine flower combination.
An organic choice for those who savor the delicate yet distinctive flavor of jasmine tea. Nearly translucent in the cup, this tea is an excellent introduction to jasmine teas which are known for their appealing aroma.
Jasmine tea is made by sprinkling jasmine flowers over green tea leaves which then absorb the flowery aroma. The jasmine flowers are plucked in the morning when the tiny petals are tightly closed. Then, as the evening cools, the flowers begin to open, emitting a "popping" sound that signals that the scenting is beginning. It takes about four hours for the tea leaves to absorb the fragrance and flavor of the jasmine blossoms.
The tea is then re-fired to remove the excess moisture from the jasmine blossoms. The spent flowers are then removed from the tea. As the flowers are completely dry and contain no more aroma (moisture), they add only visual appeal and do not indicate the quality of the tea.
