A delicate white tea crafted entirely from spring buds. The tea is not flavoured but carefully scented over six consecutive nights with fresh jasmine flowers. Once the preserve of only the Chinese Imperial family.
A deep and heady aroma with a light and gentle flavour.
Origin & Craft
The finest white silver tips scented with fresh jasmine flowers. Laid out on bamboo trays with fresh blossom over six consecutive nights the downy tips absorb the scent of the jasmine... Each morning the flowers are discarded and each night fresh jasmine is layered through the tea in a sealed room to impart their fragrance. Once the preserve of Emperors this is simply the finest jasmine tea available anywhere.
A grade above Jasmine Pearls, which are a more astringent green tea, this is a more delicate and elegant white tea.
This tea is not flavoured and containing no additives. Jasmine tea can be made using any tea as a base and is most often flavoured with oils or synthetic flavourings to mask low grade leaves.
Use 2 grams of tea per 150ml of water. For the optimum infusion use 70 degree water.
