Description

Jasmine green tea spring tips has been one of the most popular types of tea in China for centuries. ea scented with jasmine flowers has been a specialty in China since the Song Dynasty ruled over 800 years ago. It is now a type of tea beloved by tea drinkers in every country across the globe. The popularity of this sweet and refreshing tea continues to grow as people’s taste buds become more sophisticated and they realise that a better world exists than the mass produced, common everyday brands to be found in the supermarket.

Jasmine tea is produced in Anhui, Hunan, Fujian,Jiangsu, Jiangxi, Guangdong, Guangxi, and Zhejiang provinces China although the one produced in Fujian province enjoys the best reputation. Traditionally Jasmine teas leaves are picked at dawn. This is believed to be because the jasmine flowers don’t fully open until towards the end of the day and their sweet scent is released. As such, the leaves are picked at a time when they are most likely to retain the natural sweet scent of jasmine. This is also believed to be the reason why Jasmine Green Tea naturally produces an orangey-gold colour to accompany the refreshing and revitalising taste.

Along with its good qualities, jasmine tea has been drunk for centuries in China. .

BREWING INSTRUCTION:

 

THE WATER TEMPERATURE

  • The golden rule about water temperature is never use boiling water on the tea, whatever kind of tea you are making.
  • Green Teas require water at 70°C and black teas require water at 85-90°C.
  • These days you can get kettles which enable you to choose your water temperature.

 

THE AMOUNT OF TEA

  • Custom dictates that 4 grams are sufficient for one cup. But the amount is partly a matter of preference.
  • In the case of Assam tea, which is naturally very robust, you might want to reduce the strength and brew 3 grams instead of 4.

 

THE BREWING TIME

  • This is a very important step in the art of tea-making. In fact, the brewing time varies depending on the type of tea. An over-brewed black tea will develop a bitter taste whilst an under-brewed white tea will be flat and insipid.
  • Black teas are normally brewed for 2-3 minutes, green teas for 3 – 4 minutes. It is a good idea to check the brewing time before making the tea, because some teas need to be infused for very specific times: for example, Jade Pearl is left to infuse for 7 – 20 minutes, whilst Oolong tea will need 5 – 7 minutes for its bouquet to develop fully.
  • Brewing is normally done with a lid on, so that the tea retains all its aromas.
