Jasmine green tea is one of the most popular scented teas in the world. It is made by infusing green tea leaves with jasmine flowers, which gives the tea a sweet, floral aroma. The scenting process is a centuries-old tradition that originated in China during the Ming Dynasty. Scenting jasmine green tea is a time- and labor-intensive process best handled by experienced tea masters and can take up to 2-3 weeks to complete. Jasmine, rose, osmanthus, and gardenia are the top floral choices when it comes to tea scenting. During the process, it is important not to overpower the tea flavor. A tea-to-flower ratio of 3:2 is considered optimal for the best-scented tea. A step-by-step process of drying, flipping, mixing, and scenting the flowers and tea leaves is repeated 2-9 times, ensuring the aroma is fully absorbed.
Jasmine green tea is usually produced in the spring months of March to May.
