Jasmine Teas

Summary:

Firsd Tea’s jasmine green teas are produced in Zhejiang Province, China. Jasmine green is available in pearl and leaf formats. Jasmine pearls are made from the finest silver tips of tender young buds, gently steamed after plucking and hand-rolled into elegant pearls and then naturally scented with the essence of fresh jasmine blossoms. When steeped, these leaves unfurl and produce a tea with rich floral bouquet and fresh green tea scent, a refreshing sweet taste, and a pleasantly long-lasting floral aftertaste. Jasmine straight leaf tea is made from green tea leaves scented with jasmine flowers. Both teas have golden-to- bright-yellow liquor, while the straight leaf has very light astringency. Contains caffeine. Allergen free. Non-GMO.

Jasmine teas contain green tea infused with jasmine aroma. Some forms may contain some jasmine petals. Conventional jasmine teas available: Pearls, 9101, 9501, and Yin Hao Tea Bag Cut (TBC). Organic jasmine teas available: Pearls, and Extra Special. Also available in Kosher, Fair Trade, and Rainforest Alliance.
