About: Top grade green tea (Sichuan Ming Qian Yin Hao) mixed with freshly picked jasmine blossoms – layered like a cake for several weeks and turned regularly to avoid heat building up. Each day at dawn the jasmine blossoms open and scent the tea. Traditional crafting of jasmine tea is by using fresh flowers not artificial perfumes or essential oils and the flowers are being removed.
