WHAT IT IS This high-quality, all-natural green tea comes from the mountain tea fields in the Fujian province of Southern China – famous worldwide for its 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.
FLAVOR NOTES This is one of the most popular and most loved flavors of green tea, instantly recognizable by its bold, floral aroma - where the sweet notes of white jasmine flowers and the strong taste of highest quality green tea perfectly complement each other.
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.
