The basis for this Chinese specialty is a green tea to which fresh jasmine blossoms have been added during the drying process. The blossoms are later partially removed. The classical form of flavoring has been known in China for some 1000 years. The jasmine tea is practically the national drink of the Chinese and is consumed at each time of day and on each occasion. This sweet blend still has quite a lot of blossoms, which leave an intense, flowery jasmine taste and scent.
