Jasmine Green Tea
Origin: Jiangxi Province
Jasmine (Molihua Cha, 茉莉花茶) is perhaps the most famous of all Chinese teas. Usually a combination of Green Tea and fresh Jasmine flowers, Jasmine Green Tea has been made for at least 800 years. In Beijing, and indeed in most of northern China, this is the go-to tea served to welcome guests.
Our Fair Trade, Organic Jasmine Green Tea is made in WuYuan County in northeastern Jiangxi, a combination of fresh Green Tea and jasmine flowers, organically grown by the same farmers who grow the tea.
Jasmine Green Tea comes in many styles – loose leaf, rolled into small balls, even hand-bound into large balls that open into a sort of tea-flower. We offer a fine, loose-leaf Jasmine Green Tea, one that produces a brew of a lovely yellow hue with a powerful jasmine scent. For us, Jasmine Green Tea is an all-day treat.
We usually start with a tablespoon of tea in one of our smaller glass teapots, then after a second steeping, add a bit more tea with the third helping of hot water.
Jasmine Green Tea is warming in the winter, refreshing in the summer, bright enough to help get the day off to a good start and sufficiently mellow to be enjoyed all day long.

As tea goes, this one is less a morning beverage and more a mystical union. It will whisk you off to a Zen Buddhist hermitage in the T'ien Shan mountains to watch the sun rise... I highly recommend...
I basically drink this tea every morning. I was checking my email and saw this one asking for reviews while my nose was in a perfect mug of jasmine. A great delicate tea. My favorite.
