Jasmine tea is classic of all green teas! All Jasmine tea lovers will be fascinated by our aromatic Loose Jasmine Tea, especially as an afternoon tea!
Our Loose Jasmine Tea is classic for all green tea lovers! This tea is usually served as a welcoming gesture in China.
Tea leaves are harvested in the spring and kept until summer when jasmine flowers start blooming. Then jasmine flowers are harvested early in the morning when the petals are still closed. Then the petals are left on the tea leaves, and that is when the tea scenting takes place, when the flowers open and release their fragrance!
Our Loose Jasmine Tea contains young jasmine petals that give the tea its fine aroma. This tea is of exceptional quality, and would be a perfect choice for an afternoon tea!
It is widely known that China is a cradle of tea! As the legend has it, tea appeared in China in the year 2,737 BC. The Emperor Chen Nung decided to travel around China in search of healthy herbs. The Emperor would always boil water before drinking it, as he had a very healthy lifestyle. So, one day he felt tired after a long walk, boiled some water for himself and decided to rest under a tree.
A leaf from that tree fell into his glass of water. The Emperor drank it and was greatly impressed by this magnificent drink. That is how tea originated in China. Now Chinese tea, and especially Loose Chinese Green Tea is known all over the world!
And we cannot talk about Loose Chinese Green Tea without mentioning Loose Jasmine Tea! Jasmine flowers have been known in China since the 3rd century AD. However, Loose Jasmine tea appeared much later, during the Qing dynasty in the 17th century.
