This Jasmine Tea & Infuser set is a wonderful introduction to this hugely popular and delicately floral green tea from China. Beautifully elegant, Jasmine is a great-tasting and reviving tea to enjoy throughout the day.
Its exquisite taste is achieved through its very precise preparation. The intensely aromatic Jasmine flowers are picked at dusk, just when their scent is headiest. At night-time they are layered with the long leaves of fine green tea, the petals infusing with their perfume. The result is a sweet, aromatic tea that captivates the senses.
The presentation pouch is printed with a traditional Oriental design that captures the delicate flavour and Chinese origins of Jasmine Tea. Supplied with a stylish silver-plated infuser, ideal for making the perfect cup of tea for one, the set makes a lovely gift for any tea drinker.
For the perfect cup of Jasmine Tea measure ½ a teaspoon of tea (around 1g) into the silver-plated infuser for one cup or add 1-2 teaspoons of tea for a 6-cup pot. Pour over freshly drawn water that has been heated to 80 degrees and leave to brew for 2-3 minutes. Should be drunk without milk.
