Yellow Mountain Jasmine
Blood Toner and Vitamin C Champion
Jasmine Green Tea - whole leaf speciality tea. This Jasmine offers a soft mellow lingering floral character. Far from being overpowering, the Jasmine works very well when used as a cold brew infusion or mixed into gin-based cocktails as some of our bar and restaurant accounts tell us.

This is a green tea selected from Anhui province in China. The fresh green tea leaves are first left to wither naturally before been exposed to Jasmine flowers that left in baskets surrounding the green tea. This natural infusion process takes around 2 days and requires the use of up to 50 kilos of fresh flower for every 200 kilograms of green tea. The taste is altogether different from a lot of other Jasmine teas on the market that use either essence or a dried jasmine flower added to the processes green tea at the end of processing.
Quite often misunderstood, however, this tea comes from blending any greentea 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.
