A favorite tea in China since the days of the Song Dynasty (A.D. 960-1279). The delicate, sweet-smelling flowers of beautiful jasmine are picked in the morning when they are very fresh and barely opened. As the flowers start unfurling in the evening, they are piled next to the raw tea leaves (white, green, oolong, or black) in a very specific ratio. It takes about four hours for the tea to absorb the scent of jasmine. Enjoy the exquisite aromas and luscious flavors of Silk Road Jasmine. A must-have for a sophisticated tea lover!
