We've sourced our signature jasmine green tea from remote tea gardens in the south of China. The leaves are harvested 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 with fresh batches of flowers. The result is richly fragranced yet pleasingly light – delicious enjoyed at dusk, or as an after-dinner palate cleanser.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

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.
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.
