About This Blend

The Fuzhou area of the Fujian province is famous for its jasmine tea and evening air, both perfumed by the fragrant bushes which grow along the banks of the Min River. The jasmine blossoms are picked during the heat of the day, when the flowers are closed tight. The tea is scented in the cool of the evening when the blossoms open, releasing their intoxicating scent. The blossoms are heaped in piles next to the drying tealeaves, which absorb the fragrance of the jasmine. This is repeated up to seven times for the most prized jasmine teas. It is important to use fresh, cold water (use reverse osmosis, low mineral water) that has a high oxygen content with white teas - particularly teas of single estate varietal. Best drunk in the morning, when your palate is fresh.

Your FAQs, Answered
For Organic Emperor's Jasmine

White tea should be steeped for 3 minutes at a temperature of 180°F or 89°C.

White tea is traditionally grown in China and is only harvested for a few days each year before the Spring rain starts. This is when the silver downy hairs appear on the young unopened buds of the tea plant, hand picked for their freshness and delicate nature.

White tea is what we like to call a self-drinker. It should be served plain with no additions, to preserve the delicate palate it presents.
