Fresh jasmine petals give the fragrance to this famous Chinese green tea. The jasmine flowers are layered on top of tea over night and as the flowers open, the tea is beautifully scented. This ancient process is repeated up to 6 times infusing the tea leaves with the most delicate flavours. The type of organic green tea is called Mao Jian or “Downy Tip”. The nickname comes from the little hairs on the young leaves and that’s a sign of exquisite quality. Our Organic Jasmine “Mao Jian” is a masterly crafted delicacy.
