Jasmine tea

Jasmine tea has been very popular in China since the ancient times…

Their blossoms are most often added to green and white, sometimes black tea… Jasmine flowers are a natural tea flavor! Blossoms from common jasmine (Jasminum officinale) or sampaguita (Jasminum sambac) are placed alongside tea leaves in storage or blended with stored tea, allowing the aroma to infuse.

In China, jasmine is grown high in the mountains in many provinces, Fujian has the best reputation.

Jasmine in China grows from late spring to late autumn, but the best harvest is the summer harvest. As a result Jasmine flowers harvested in summer are more fragrant than those harvested in autumn. After harvesting, the flowers are laid out neatly and evenly, and dried.

When the flowers dry out, they are combined with tea leaves. Aromatize with jasmine in two ways. In the first case, tea leaves with jasmine flowers are heat treated throughout the day. In this case, unfortunately, the tea leaves practically lose their taste. Second case, the tea leaves are shifted with flowers and left for up to four months.

Thus, the tea retains all the beneficial properties and naturally picks up the aroma of jasmine. Since the second method of flavoring is more laborious and time consuming, and also uses manual work, the price of tea increases accordingly.
