enjoy the sweet, intoxicating aroma of pure fresh Jasmine flowers unravelling in your cup!
This special tea harvest takes place in spring when the buds are strong and powerful. The pickers only pluck the slightly opened, delicate buds. The next stage is scenting. The long silvery tea buds are delicately hand-rolled and partially pan dried in a wok before being blanketed with pure fresh Jasmine flowers and left to absorb their aroma. The fresh flowers are replaced each evening for several days and finally removed before the tea is ready - there's no perfume or added flavouring here! To finish, the freshly flavoured tea leaves are rolled by hand into pearls, marbled with tips of sage green and silver.
The pearls unfurl to release the sweet, intoxicating Jasmine aroma, and a deliciously velvet smooth taste - indulge slowly, sip by sip.
