The aroma of this tea is like a night garden in full bloom. It is heady and deeply floral. When steeped, the flavor of this tea is mildly sweet with toasty notes and a long, opulent finish. The color is deep yellow and the tea feels smooth in the mouth. The base leaves for this jasmine tea are pouchong – an ever-so-slightly oxidized oolong with a deep green color. Pouchong is naturally a bit floral on its own, and those floral notes combine beautifully with the jasmine.
After the tea leaves are picked and prepared, they are stored until jasmine plants are in full bloom. The open flowers of the jasmine lend their fragrance to the tea leaves through several applications. Afterward, some dried jasmine petals are mixed into the tea. This finest quality jasmine tea comes from China’s Fujian province. Kosher.
