One of the most well recognised Chinese teas, famous for the labour intense process that has its roots in tradition. During what can be an almost week long production in the finest varieties, the tea leaves are layered with jasmine blossoms, which open up at night to bind the tea with their perfume.
The tea can be brewed several times in off the boil water and is an aid to digestion, which is why it is served as an accompaniment to food in Chinese restaurants. The yellow flowers add colour and visual appeal to blends. This tea is a true Chinese classic.
