Jasmine Green Tea - Tin Can

A popular combination of full leaf green tea flushed with fresh Jasmine blossoms. This expertly manufactured tea is characteristic of a sweet & alluring aroma of jasmine flowers, pale green Colour & a fresh lingering aftertaste.

Origin- Tracing Back the Roots

Jasmine tea has Chinese roots. It was cultivated for centuries in China. The jasmine plant, native to the Himalayas and parts of China, was prized for its beautiful fragrance. Historically, jasmine was used to scent perfumes, but the practice of scenting tea leaves with jasmine blossoms originated during the Song Dynasty between 960 and 1279 AD. This era marked the beginning of the intentional blending of tea and flowers, giving rise to jasmine-scented teas. Over time, jasmine tea gained popularity in China, across Asia, and eventually around the globe.

Jasmine Tea Types

This tea comes in various forms, offering unique flavor profiles and characteristics. Some of the most common types include:

  • Jasmine Green Tea: This is the classic variety, with green tea leaves scented with jasmine. It embodies the fresh, grassy green tea notes complemented by jasmine's floral aroma.
  • Jasmine White Tea: Delicate and nuanced, jasmine white tea features young tea buds or leaves scented with jasmine blossoms. It offers a milder flavor than green jasmine tea, with subtle floral undertones.
  • Jasmine Black Tea: Bold and robust, jasmine black tea features fully oxidized tea leaves infused with jasmine flowers. It boasts a rich, malty flavor with hints of jasmine, making it a favorite among those who prefer more potent brews.

Harvesting Jasmine Blossoms:

The careful harvesting of jasmine blossoms is the first step of the scenting process. Typically, this occurs during the day when the flowers are in full bloom, emitting their most potent fragrance. Selecting the finest blossoms is crucial to ensure the highest quality of aroma infusion into the tea leaves.

Layering Over Tea Leaves

Freshly picked jasmine blossoms are meticulously layered over trays of tea leaves. This step allows the gradual infusion of the flowers' fragrance into the tea leaves. The layering process is conducted precisely to ensure an even scent distribution throughout the tea.

Resting Period

After layering, the tea leaves rest, typically lasting overnight. At this stage, the tea leaves absorb the aromatic essence of the jasmine blossoms, resulting in the development of a rich and complex fragrance profile. Multiple rounds of scenting may be performed to enhance the intensity of the aroma.

Separation of Jasmine Flowers

Once the scenting process is complete, the jasmine flowers are carefully separated from the tea leaves. This meticulous separation ensures that only the essence of the fragrance remains infused within the tea. Removing the jasmine flowers is essential for a balanced and delicately scented brew.

Gentle Drying

The scented tea leaves are subjected to gentle drying to preserve their flavor and aroma. This final step is ensures the quality of the tea and prevents any loss of fragrance. Proper drying techniques help to lock in the aroma, resulting in a high-quality end product that captivates the senses with its fragrant elegance.
