Snow Jasmine was named for the pale white down that coats the leaves, resembling fresh snowfall. The base green tea is Gan Lu, or sweet dew, from Mengding Mountain in Sichuan. Young leaf buds were handpicked in early spring, pan roasted, finished, and stored until summer jasmine season. In total, our Snow Jasmine received six rounds of jasmine scenting. The result is a sweet and intensely aromatic tea with wispy leaves. When steeped, they unravel to reveal delicate young leaf buds and an intoxicating bouquet of sweet nectar, lily, and jasmine.
Scenting: an initial low temperature baking dried the tea, and a fresh layer of jasmine flowers are scattered over the leaves. The dry tea absorbs the residual moisture and aromatic oils from the flowers overnight.

I love how fragant the Jasmine tea is from here. This is my go to tea and one I drink on the daily. I've tried ordering from other places before but this is the most fragant I've found and a repeat customer ever since I've been introduce!
it is the most premium jasmine green tea I ever have. even though it is a little pricy, it definitely worth it. You pay what you get. This tea is overflowing with a fragrant aroma, and the floral scent is refreshing to the heart.
