Tea-Jasmine

China

Tea scented with jasmine flowers has been a specialty in China since the Song Dynasty ruled over 800 years ago. The Jasmine plant is believed to have been brought to the world from China sometime during the Period of Disunity (220-589).

The jasmine plant is grown at high elevation in the mountains. The jasmine tea produced in Fujian province, China enjoys the best reputation.

It is harvested in the spring and stored until early summer when fresh Jasmine flowers are in bloom. Jasmine flowers are picked early in the day when the small petals are tightly closed. The flowers are kept cool until nightfall. In the early evening when the flowers begin to open, the tea is blended with the Jasmine flowers and stored overnight. The night blooming Jasmine flowers then open and release their fragrance into the tea. It takes over four hours for the tea to absorb the fragrance and flavor of the jasmine blossoms; this process may be repeated for as many as six or seven times. The tea absorbs moisture from the fresh Jasmine flowers so it must be re-fired to prevent spoilage.
