Jasmine Tea

Typically, jasmine tea has green tea as the tea base.

Tea leaves are harvested in the early spring and stored until the late summer when fresh jasmine flowers are in bloom. The jasmine plant is grown at high elevations in the mountains. Jasmine flowers are picked early in the day when the small petals are tightly closed.

There are two main methods used to scent the tea with jasmine. In one method, the tea and flowers are placed in alternating layers; in the other, the tea is blended with jasmine flowers and stored overnight.

The resulting flavor of jasmine tea is subtly sweet and highly fragrant with the aroma of jasmine blossoms.
