• Mild taste with floral notes reminiscent of gardenias
Jasmine Tea is a specialty among China Teas. It is prepared from green tea of chosen quality and scented with fresh jasmine flowers. It blends the fine flavor of green tea with the fragrance of Jasmine producing a unique drink which has won the favor of many tea lovers.
Jasmine Tea is known to have been produced as early as the Sung Dynasty over 700 years ago. Just as the Jasmine flowers begin to bloom, they are added to the tea leaves. The scenting is done at night to capture the full sweet scent of the Jasmine. After the tea leaves have absorbed the fragrance, the flowers are removed and the scenting process is repeated to produce a tea that has a fresh and natural bouquet.
Originating in the mountainous regions of northeast India, Jasmine is known by most for its intoxicatingly rich sweet smell. But Jasmine also has wonderful properties for skin care. It tones the skin, has anti-inflammatory properties and is especially well suited for dry and sensitive skin.
Because it was thought to have aphrodisiac powers for many centuries, Jasmine was an extremely valuable oil during ancient times and it was used in different cultures in many types of ceremonies. The Chinese used jasmine in sick rooms to cleanse the air. It was also used by Egyptians to help support nervous disorders, insomnia and headaches. The Chinese still drink jasmine tea on a daily basis, and in Indonesia it can be used as a garnish to food.
The difference between the hundreds of teas available and herbals such as this, is that all teas are made from Camellia Sinensis. Herbals, fruit infusions and tisanes are not. They are made from various parts of other plants which have their own characteristics and flavors. For whatever reason, these Jasmine flowers are virtually flavor neutral and add a lovely dimension of flowers and white coloration to a tea blend without affecting the taste profiles of the tea.
Ironically, these same Jasmine flowers would have been used in China to make Jasmine tea, delicately scenting the fresh green tea with their ethereal character. The best Jasmine flowers become available in early May in Fujian province. During this time the aroma in the fields of Jasmine can be intoxicating and probably one of the most memorable scents to which you could be exposed. It is when these flowers become available that they can be used to scent green tea, resulting in Jasmine Tea.
The flowers are used up to 9 times (depending upon their flavor and the time of year they are plucked). The process is: a layer of fresh jasmine flowers, tea, flowers, tea etc... Between each layer there is a fine mesh which keeps the flowers separated from the tea. Since Jasmine flowers are very expensive they are used repeatedly but by the 9th time the flavor in the flowers is virtually exhausted. At this point they are useable in this particular form - blend components for visual presentation of tea.
