This tea is made with high-quality handmade white tea known as White Monkey. The sweet, fragrant character of Jasmine Blossom enhances the white tea's mellow quality. The tea is grown in Fujian Province on special bushes called the Big White. Fujian is also home to the best Jasmine and is the place where Jasmine tea and another famous scented tea, Lapsang Souchong were first created. We requested that some blossoms were left in to add to the lovely appearance of this tea. Jasmine tea is made by adding layers of jasmine blossom between the tea leaves. As the blossom opens during the night, the tea takes on the scent. In the best grades such as this, this process takes place seven times over the course of a week. Jasmine tea, like green tea, of which there are thousands of varieties, is produced by many complex methods but is first processed to prevent the oxidation of the leaf, which would turn the tea into "black" tea. Like green tea, it is believed to have health benefits due to the high content of antioxidants found in white tea.
