WHAT IT IS This is the ultra premium version of one of the most popular flavors of green tea. Each tea leaf has been hand-selected by tea experts for an unparalleled tea drinking experience. This highest quality green tea comes from the mountain tea fields in the Fujian province of Southern China – famous worldwide for its premium white and green teas. It is also where the jasmine flowers are grown. New green tea leaves are mixed with freshly picked white jasmine flowers, allowing the nectar from the blossoms to seep into the tea leaves. Once the flavor sets in, the tea is separated from the jasmine flowers, which results in all-natural, delicious flavor – with no artificial additives. The tea leaves are then rolled – three at a time – into perfect little pearls which lock the flavor. The flavor explodes when the pearls are brewed.
FLAVOR NOTES This ultra premium version of one of the most popular and most loved flavors of green tea is characterized by a unique combination of sweet white jasmine flowers and the robust taste of highest quality green tea - which perfectly complement each other. The flavor-locking pearls are meant to be steeped several times to release their full fragrance and flavor.
BACKGROUND Jasmine green tea has been enjoyed for centuries: tea drinkers in China, Persia and India started using jasmine blossoms to scent teas as early as 5th Century AD. This delicious practice quickly spread in the West once the Qing Dynasty began exporting tea in large quantities.
