The perfect gift for any jasmine tea lover, this pretty tin is filled with 100g of Whittard’s beautifully aromatic Jasmine tea leaves. The classic Oriental floral design is inspired by Chinese fabrics and pays tribute to the character and origin of the tea.
Jasmine is a sweet, aromatic green tea from China that captivates the senses. Jasmine flowers are picked at dusk, just when their scent is headiest, then at night-time they are layered with the long leaves of fine green tea, the petals infusing the tea with their perfume. Light and refreshing, it is a great-tasting and reviving tea to enjoy throughout the day.
The tin has an internal lid that keeps the tea beautifully fresh, and when you have drunk all the tea it can be refilled and used again and again. It makes an original gift to treasure for a birthday or any other special occasion, whether Jasmine Tea is already a favourite or something completely new.
For the perfect cup of tea, ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and use freshly drawn water, which is heated to around 80 degrees. You can either pour the water before it reaches boiling point or allow the water to sit for a few minutes afterwards. Allow to brew for 2-3 minutes according to taste. Should be drunk without milk.
