JASMIN EMPEREUR PU YI
Green tea scented with jasmine flowers
Mariage Frères enriches its Collection of Jasmine Tea, already one of the richest and most enticing in the world, with this magnificent green tea crafted with authentic jasmine flowers – pure, delicate – and as rare as they are precious. World-renowned and classed among the best Teas of China, tea and whole flowers are layered successively according to a traditional method reserved exclusively for the finest jasmine teas. Mingled together, the fragrances of these two Grands Crus then coalesce over subsequent days. The jasmine flowers are renewed as often as necessary in order to obtain the perfect balance of aromatic intensity.
Dried leaves: On a cast-iron stove, the downy, elegant buds mingle with the young, delicately heated brown leaves. A hint of fresh hazelnut blends with the sensual perfume of jasmine.
Infused leaves: The infused leaves and jasmine petals define an elixir both powerful and refined.
Liquor: Luminous buttercup yellow. The cup is veiled in a wisp of vanilla and a sublime fragrance of chypre.
Jasmine tea by Mariage Frères
Our jasmine tea is scented according to a time-honoured tradition.
Plucked at dawn, thousands of delicate jasmine flowers are layered into the tea leaves and buds.
The dry tea thus absorbs all of the heady, natural fragrance from the fresh flowers.
This melding is repeated several times so the essence suffuses the heart of the tea.
Between perfuming, the tea is dried again so that new, freshly plucked flowers may impart more aroma.
After giving up all their delicious jasmine scent to the tea, the dried flowers are then carefully collected by hand, one by one.
The all-natural jasmine tea is finally ready to be enjoyed.
