The green tea leaves absorb the fragrance and flavour of the jasmine flowers and includes certified organic pink rose petals to the blend.
The green tea base is harvested in early spring and stored until the jasmine plant, grown at high elevations in the mountains, can be harvested in late summer. The tea leaves are then scented with the aroma of the jasmine blossom. The scenting process takes place at night when the jasmine flowers open and release their fragrance. It is repeated several times until the desired level of aroma is developed.
The subtly sweet and highly fragrant brew is the most famous scented tea in China and is best enjoyed on its own, without sugar or milk.

Brewing Instructions & Storage:
Use 1 heaped teaspoon per 200ml of water.

Tips:If the taste is slightly bitter or leaves a dry feeling in your mouth, and is not soft and delicate as intended, you steeped the blend for too long, the water was too hot, or you took too many leaves for the amount of water. Try reducing the steeping time or water temperature and experiment with the amount of leaves per cup to find your personal preferences.
