Probably the best known of the scented teas, Jasmine green tea has been a favourite in China for over 1,000 years where it is traditionally served to welcome guests.
The Jasmine flowers are harvested in the early morning while they are tightly closed.
In the evening when they start to open, they are blended with Green Tea, which then absorbs their scent.
This process is repeated 3-4 times and then the tea is fired again to remove any excess moisture that has been absorbed from the flowers.
The resulting beverage is a beautiful golden-honey colour with a refreshing taste and pleasing aroma.
What a lovely way to welcome someone into your home !
