Loose Leaf Jasmine Scented Green Tea
This wonderful, aromatic tea is made with tea leaves cultivated in the southern frontiers of Fujian Province in South East China. The misty, mountainous region, with its subtropical climate, is ideally suited to growing tea. It is then scented with fresh jasmine flowers in the neighbouring Guangxi Province for a delicately perfumed green tea.
Green tea is plucked in Spring and kept dry until jasmine flowers bloom in late Summer. These are then placed on top of the tea for several hours, releasing their heady aroma; the process is repeated several times, always using fresh flowers, until the tea is judged to be ready. The result is an exquisite tea, sweet, smooth and delightfully perfumed.
