Jasmine tea is one of the most pleasant tasting green teas available on the market. On the nose, the dry tea has a floral bouquet, which literally causes your senses to come alive with pleasant thoughts. The flavour is enhanced with the addition of jasmine blossoms which give the tea a visual appeal few other teas are capable of copying. 

There are many different grades of jasmine tea. This particular grade is the first grade below the exotic jasmines. It has all the flavour, aroma and good green tea qualities but not the exorbitant price. In China, they declare this jasmine tea as Jasmine #1. 

The production of jasmine tea is quite interesting. It is important to begin with high-quality green tea - tea that has been produced between the middle of March and the middle of May. Equally important for jasmine tea are fine jasmine blossoms - flowers that bloom between the 1st of May and the end of May (these have the most intense aroma). Traditionally layers of jasmine blossoms were placed between fine green tea. In time the scent of the jasmine permeated the tea. Today, hot air is passed through the jasmine blossoms and then filtered through the tea so that the blossoms can be used more than once. The exhausted blossoms are then used to decorate the tea. Produced in both China and Taiwan, jasmine tea yields a cup with all the concentrated heady bouquet of a garden in bloom. 


 

Hot Tea Brewing Method


Heat water to 180°F or 80°C. Place 1 teaspoon of green tea per cup into your teapot, and add 1 for the pot (for a more intense flavour, add a bit more tea). Pour the water into the pot and let it steep for about 3 minutes. Pour into your cup and enjoy.

Alternatively, put the tea in a tea infuser and brew right in your cup. When preparing by the cup, this tea can be used repeatedly - about 3 times.

Some like to brew this straight in the cup without an infuser, but be careful not to drink the leaves at the bottom of your cup. The pattern of the leaves is said to tell your fortune.

Milk not recommended for green tea.

 

Iced Tea Brewing Method


Make as for hot, but add extra tea - a rule of thumb is to double the amount used. When the tea has cooled a little, pour over ice. It is important to make it a little stronger as the ice will water it down.

Alternatively, you can cold brew the tea by placing the tea in a jug and adding cold water. Leave to infuse for a few hours (or overnight in the fridge) strain and enjoy. Cold brewing will give a smoother taste.
 

To make 1 litre of iced tea: Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant jug. Pour half a pint (275ml) of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving jug with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving jug while straining the leaves. Add ice and top up the jug with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste.

Sublime

This is the most fragrant Jasmine tea I have ever had.

Superb

I am addicted to Jasmine tea and am also a terrible tea snob. This is “simpli” the best Jasmine tea I have found in decades of drinking it!
