An aromatic, delicate and floral tea. Jasmine blossoms are mixed with green tea leaves, allowing the tea to absorb the blossoms’ fragrance. Three days later, the blossoms are separated and removed one by one by hand.
Jasmine blossoms have been used to give tea fragrance since the 5th century AD. However, jasmine tea reached its zenith during the Qing dynasty, when it was also exported in large quantities to Europe.
