Jasmine Tea

Welcome to Our Jasmine Tea Selection!

Jasmine teas are created by repeatedly exposing the tea leaves to the sweet smelling aroma of the Jasmine flower blossoms. We use a Pouchong tea as the base for our Jasmine blend. Pouchong tea is produced in a similar manner as green teas, but is allowed to slightly oxidize before being scented with fragrant flowers. After this style of tea is exposed to the floral jasmine flowers, the flowers are removed from the teas. Only the best jasmine teas arrive to you devoid of the actual flower in the tea blend.

Brewing Tips: Our Before the Rain Flowery Jasmine should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a rolling boil and allowed to cool for just under a minute (170-180° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. This tea should be steeped for 3-4 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping.

  • Flowery Jasmine Before The Rain

    Each year we carefully select our Jasmine base tea from the finest pouchong teas available from China. These leaves have been picked at their flavor peak in the spring, traditionally before the rain and the period of fastest growth. Our selection is then held with the utmost of care until summer, when the most remarkable Jasmine flowers are available for blending. It is indeed a tea of teas- fine, delicate and aromatic. We suggest that Jasmine be served in the afternoon and at special occasions, when its particular virtues can be best appreciated.
