Jasmine tea is the most popular flower-scented tea in East Asia. Its enchanting, unforgettable aroma is created through an artisanal method of tea scenting that dates back more than 800 years. Jasmine blossoms are gathered during midsummer evenings and spread amongst tea leaves over several successive nights. Because dried tea leaves are hydroscopic, they readily absorb floral essences like jasmine. Our Jasmine Green features a base tea grown from Fujian province, where green teas are strong but not too bitter. Tender young tea buds are silver in color.
