Green tea scented with jasmine flowers
Prosperous China of the Song dynasty is the cradle of jasmine tea. Issued from a small garden, this Jasmin Beauty finds an honourable place in the magnificent collection of jasmine teas at Mariage Frères.
The brilliant, handsome green leaves offer a liquor of pale gold whose intense jasmine fragrance is accented by a sweet hint of vanilla.
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.
