Premium China Jasmine with flower is a blend of green tea with Jasmine blossoms providing a delicious, sweet, fruity, delicate drink.
This China Jasmine with flower is a blend of green tea with Jasmine blossoms providing a delicious, sweet, fruity, delicate drink. The process is however far from simple. The blossoms are harvested first thing in the morning , when the petals are tightly closed. Because the fragrance is most intense at night, they are then stored in a cool place during the day. The following evening, they are mixed with the dry tea leaves in a special machine that uses slightly warm air to transfer the scent from the flowers to the tea. This process is repeated as many times as necessary to achieve the required quality – sometimes as many as 7. Once the flavour is right, the tea is fired again to dry off the moisture it has absorbed from the flowers. Some of the dry Jasmine flowers are sometimes mixed with the tea at this stage (as they are for this China Green Jasmine).
Packaging: 100gr of tea in an aluminum foil reclosable bag which guarantees freshness for at least 12 months after first opening.
Preparing guide: Use 1 teaspoon per 200ml of water. Steep in water with temperature of 710C for 1-3 minutes. Any longer and you will spoil the amazing Jasmine flavour and sweetness with bitter notes (in which case start again with the same leaves). Drink on its own without milk or sugar. Jasmine tea will provide a second and even a third brewing of excellent tea from the same leaves, which will have less caffeine and subtly different flavours.

Other info: Jasmine is believed to have many health benefits. It is used as an anti-depressant (especially for post-natal depression), as it is reputed to lift mood and to have an energising effect. It is also traditionally used to ease childbirth, soothe coughs and relax muscle pains. Jasmine is commonly used in China to improve irritable, dry or greasy skin and to reduce stretch marks.
