Yellow Mountain Jasmine

Yellow Mountain Jasmine

Description

We take a green tea from Anhui Province and blend it with vibrant fresh Jasmine flowers that are grown on the border between China and Vietnam. Over the course of 5 days the flowers are rotated in a controlled seal room to allow the green to naturally soak up the exotic fresh jasmine notes. 

Story

Quite often misunderstood, however, this tea comes from blending any green tea with jasmine flower. The process is to take a smaller base of green tea from Anhui and blend it with the jasmine flower, which is grown right down on the southern border with Vietnam. This blend was once upon a time used as a way to sell previous harvests of green tea to the "Northerners", with the scent of jasmine masking any bad flavour of older tea. Today the story is very different, we only source the freshest teas and flowers before creating the blend.  

Processing Method

Rolled and dried (Flowers are Sun Parched and Dried). The "5" refers to the number of times that the green tea is exposed to absorb the scent of jasmine. This takes roughly 3 days.
