Fresh From Origin
The production of jasmine tea is rather labor intensive and the majority of its production takes place in China alone. Jasmine tea is a scented tea which typically uses green tea leaves as its base. It can be found as white and black teas as well, though much less common.
There is an important distinction between traditional jasmine tea and those using a modern timesaving method. The tradition method requires the layering of freshly picked jasmine flowers over a bed of tea leaves and left to infuse the scent. The flowers are then removed and the processed repeated up to five times. The entire procedure can take weeks, which led to creation of the shortcut approach.
