Since the Song Dynasty, Jasmine green tea has become a popular choice for both hot and iced tea. This scented tea is delicately flavored and semi-fermented to give it delicious and refreshing flavor. Grown on small tea farms, the green tea leaves are plucked and stored. Each Jasmine flower is picked before dawn, just prior to opening; they are then stored with the green tea leaves for four hours or longer. This process is done four to seven more times to ensure that the tea leaves are sufficiently scented. Jasmine tea has a sweetened, floral flavor and brightness, while the aroma is extremely enticing. These characteristics are what give this green tea a refreshing appeal.
