Lovely aroma and tasteReview by Sara
This tea is magical! It gives a lovely refreshing aroma whilst your drinking it and the delicate taste of the Jasmine is perfectly balanced. This is one of the best Jasmine teas I have tasted. Very happy to find it!(Posted on 5/19/16)
The long green tea buds are hand-picked from the young green tea plants and are heated soon after picking to arrest oxidation of the leaves. They are then carefully stored for several weeks until the Jasmine flowers blossom. The tea buds are very skilfully hand rolled into perfect spheres and layered over several nights with the fresh Jasmine blossoms.
Jasmine tea is great with food - as delicious with a light summer lunch as it is with Dim Sum or a winter supper, it also makes a fabulous Iced Tea and a cocktail ingredient. Can also be used in cooking - try as an inspired way to add authentic jasmine flavour to rice.This is one of the few authentic Jasmine teas available in the UK and was made by our own supplier.
At the Great Taste Awards it was independently blind-tasted by a series of panels - comprising passionate foodies, food industry heavy-weights and well-known restaurateurs - and was judged to be the best.
