All of our jasmine teas begin with a premium quality leaf that has been picked before the spring rains, steamed and then stored until late summer heat brings jasmine into full bloom. The blossoms are then picked each evening just before they open. This begins the round the clock hand crafting of adding flowers to the partially finished tea for scenting then removing them for drying then adding more blossoms to the tea leaves again and removing them again up to as many as twelve times! The lovely aroma and flavor is a result of the jasmine flower and skill of the tea master. The quality and difference in price and flavor is often a result of how many times the leaves have been scented with the flowers. Gift box contains 35 grams of loose leaf tea.
