Jasmine Loose Tea
Out of stock
We've sourced our signature Jasmine loose green tea from remote tea gardens in the south of China. The leaves are harvested and processed in the spring, then kept fresh until the summer jasmine season, when the young jasmine buds are picked and layered over the tea to release their essential oils. The result is richly fragrance yet pleasingly light delicious enjoyed at dusk, or as an after-dinner palate cleanser.

We’ve chosen the number 9 for this classic Chinese tea, a symbol of harmony in Chinese culture and historically associated with the Emperor.
The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.
