Jasmine 50 Traditional Teabags
Out of stock
During the scenting process, the green tea leaves are layered up to six times with fresh jasmine once the buds start to open at dusk, then carefully turned to release the flower’s essential oils. It takes months of labour and no less than 400 jasmine flowers to make just 100g of naturally scented jasmine tea, but we think the effort’s worth it.

We've sourced our signature Jasmine green tea from remote tea gardens in the south of China. The leaves are harvested and processed in the spring, then kept fresh until the summer jasmine season, when the young jasmine buds are picked and layered over the tea to release their essential oils. The result is richly fragrance yet pleasingly light delicious enjoyed at dusk, or as an after-dinner palate cleanser.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Brew the Perfect cup
The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.
Green tea's fresh, verdant taste is down to its processing: the leaves are heated shortly after picking, stopping the oxidation process that would eventually turn them into black tea. Some of the best green teas are found in Japan and China, where the techniques of firing or steaming the leaves have been perfected over many centuries. Find out more about green tea here.
