Where to Buy: Bitterleaf
Our Silver Egret 2015 Spring Jasmine Green Tea, along with our Pearl Buds Jasmine, are currently our only non-Yunnan teas on offer and technically also our only green teas at the moment. Produced in Yunnan’s neighbor province of Guangxi using Zhe Jiang green tea, these teas come from the largest Jasmine Flower producing region of China, Heng Xian. A complex and labour intensive tea to make, this large tip-only green Jasmine tea is elegantly perfumed with the scent of both Jasmine flowers and Yulan Magnolia. By employing a scenting process that involves lining the bottom with Yulan Magnolia and the top with Jasmine flower, a balanced and complimentary flavor is achieved.
This tea is extremely refreshing, with a pleasant, cooling aftertaste. We recommend brewing this tea a little lighter in order to enjoy the subtle sweetness without being too overwhelmed by the floral scent.
