Jasmine and Floral Teas

Tea enriched with the fragrance of jasmine and other flowers is the oldest of scented teas, a Ming dynasty invention still popular today. It is made by laying the flowers with the tea leaves during the processing. As they are smoked together, the tea leaves absorb the essence of the flower. When the petals' fragrance has been exhausted, the spent petals are placed in the base tea. Contrary to popular belief, the finest sweetest grades contain fewer petals.

Chinese Jasmine and Floral Teas.

Fanciest Jasmine Tea.

Organic Jasmine Ancient Beauty
This organic oolong tea from Yunnan province yields a beautiful caramel colored liquor and provides an uncommonly smooth and sweet base that balances with, but is not over-powered by the rich jasmine taste.

We suggest using 2 grams for one cup with approximately 200 spring water, steeped 4 minutes.

Dragon Phoenix Pearl Jasmine Tea.
Organic Dragon Phoenix Pearl
Organic Dragon Phoenix Pearl gets its name from the visual characteristics of the tea bushes climbing the hillsides like a Dragon coming out of the water. The women pickers, chosen specifically to pluck this type of tea, give the appearance of dancing phoenixes next to the Dragon's long slender body. The tea is grown in an area in Fuding City near the border of the Fujian and Jiangxi provinces. The area is mountainous and is often shrouded in clouds or fog. The tea is picked in April and May and held until August and September when the finest jasmine blossoms are in bloom. The jasmine flowers are picked before noon and set aside until evening when the petals begin to open in the cool night air. Once open, the "marrying" of the jasmine to the tea happens in two applications after which the jasmine petals are removed. When the petals are removed, women begin rolling each leaf and a bud into tiny pearl-sized balls. Once rolled, the tea is wrapped in silk mesh and dried by fire to set the form. According to analysis done by Chinese researchers, Organic Dragon Phoenix Pearl has a higher concentration of Vitamin C and amino acids than other teas. Use spring water at a temperature of 80 to 90 C. (180 to 195 F.) and multiple short steepings.
