Jasmine Tea

Jasmine tea is most often a pure green tea scented with jasmine blossom. It has a gently sweet aroma and refreshing and energising qualities and is one of China's most celebrated scented teas. 

Jasmine Tea

Jasmine tea is made from the Camellia sinensis plant leaves, picked in spring, then processed in the summer when the jasmine blossoms.  Green tea does not undergo the same withering and oxidation process that is used to make other teas. Instead, the leaves are steamed or fried, which gives the tea a lighter and green-yellow hue. 

Jasmine tea has to be one of the most elegant of all the flavoured green teas, and we just can't get enough of the aroma. We love it in the afternoon or after a salty or spicy meal.

Finest Jasmine Tea – Organic Loose-Leaf Tea

Our organic Finest Jasmine Tea is, as the title suggests, a fine and fragrant Jasmine with a mild and flowery touch. 

This tea is produced by the Qingshan tea garden in China, set amid a mountainous landscape at an altitude of around 750m and is part of a peninsula in the middle of an artificial lake. It is harvested in early Summer when only the finest, youngest leaves are picked.

After harvesting, the leaves are flavoured with fresh Jasmine petals repeated three times over, thus creating the marvellous mild, slightly tart tea with fine floral Jasmine notes.

Our customers say, "A nice delicate tea. Good that it is organic too."

China Jasmine Dragon Pearls – Organic Loose-Leaf Tea

This superb tea is an excellent Jasmine tea with pleasant and subtle floral notes. This superb tea is harvested in spring when the buds are strong and powerful. The careful process of this tea is carried out by hand, and the final pearl shape is achieved by hand-rolling each leaf.

This green tea grows at the Qingshan Tea Garden, a quiet place deep in the rural area of the Chinese province of Hunan. Set in a mountainous landscape at an altitude of 750m, part of a peninsula in the middle of an artificial lake.

When brewed, the China Jasmine Dragon Pearls tea has an invigorating scent of jasmine fragrance and a light-yellow cup. 

Our customers say, "Probably the best jasmine green tea I've ever had. Leave six pearls to brew in a cup for about 3-5 mins for a very mild and delicate flavour and not bitter like some cheaper green teas. I will definitely buy again."

How to Brew the Perfect Green Tea

Whether you want to use the loose leaves or try a tea bag infusion, the standard process is the same.

But please note that green tea needs slightly cooled boiled water to extract the best flavours from green tea. The ideal temperature is around 80 degrees.

(Please refer to each individual tea packet for exact brewing instructions)


  • Boil filtered cold water
  • Place the tea leaves in a tea strainer or filter basket
  • Pour over the hot (80 degrees) water
  • Steep the tea for the appropriate amount of time (2-3 minutes)
  • Strain the tea
  • Sweeten with sugar lumps or honey the tea to taste (we don't recommend adding milk!)
