JASMINE TEA

One of the most well known Chinese teas, the best of which comes from the Fujian Province. 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 permeate the tea with their perfume. The higher the quality the more times this is repeated, with more care taken to remove the blossom from the finished tea.

  1. As low as £17.00
    This is the finest grade of this popular hand-rolled tea. Each kilogram in weight is made up of 14,000 pearls. Just eight will make a half pint of tea and you can use the same leaves again for at least another brew. If you do the maths you'll find it works out at just six pence a cup for one of the finest and rarest teas in the world! The tea buds that make this tea are hand-picked in gardens found among the chains of mountains, hidden in mist close to the Fujian border with Jiangxi. Each leaf is skillfully hand rolled into a tiny pearl size ball. The tea is then wrapped in silk mesh and carefully dried.
  2. As low as £8.00
    Our most economical yet far from an ordinary offer. This tea ranks at number five in the hundreds of jasmine teas available. Made in the traditional way by layering lightly oxidised green tea with Jasmine Blossoms. The higher the grade, the more times this is done with freshly picked blossoms. The process is done over night as the blossoms open then to release their characteristic fragrance. Perhaps surprisingly, the higher grades also show fewer blossoms in the finished product. It has a beautiful, distinctive, sweet flavour.
  3. As low as £12.00
    The best grade of Jasmine tea available, grown in an area of outstanding natural beauty in Fujian. A very delicate leaf that gives an exquisite infusion.
  4. As low as £13.00
    This is a high grade of cooked loose leaf Pu Erh Gam Fei Cha from 2010, handmade entirely from young shoots and scented with jasmine blossom. It is perfect for jasmine and Pu Erh tea fans alike but is also an opportunity for a gentle introduction to the unique flavour of Gam Fei Cha for novices.
