Additional Information

  • Description
    The Chinese art of scenting tea leaves with jasmine blossoms may have originated as early as the 5th century, but the trend really took hold during the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644) whenbricks of tea were abolished in favour of loose leaf, prompting tea artisans to experiment with new techniques. Designed as a drink for Chinas elite, this tea was strictly reserved for the Imperial Court where it was presented to the Emperor in elaborate ceremonies. Weve 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. Once picked, the young buds of jasmine start to open at dusk; they are then layered over the tea and carefully turned to release their essential oils, a process repeated up to six times overnight with fresh batches of flowers. The result is richly fragranced yet pleasingly light - delicious enjoyed at dusk, or as an after-dinner palate cleanser. "

Origin: China

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

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.
