This tea is mostly made of the tea bud and small amount of one bud with one leaf from Yunnan tea trees. After rolling, screen out the shoot tips as the material to scent with budding fresh jasmine flower, the fragrance of flower and tea blending together, at last add the dried jasmine flower as decoration, thus it is increased the ornamental value of this tea. This tea is suitable to be brewed with transparent glass tea cup. After brewed with hot water, the strong tea aroma and flower aroma overflow from the bottom of the cup. The tea dances up and down in the cup, while the jasmine flower slowly floats from the bottom of the cup, gradually becoming transparent, like blooming in the water, also like the snow from the sky, against the green tea leaves, so beautiful to watch.
The tea makers are scenting the budding jasmine flower with green teas and after the tea leaves fully absorb the aroma of jasmine flower, sift out the flower. The scenting process will repeat 5 times. At last, they will use the No. 1 flower with strong fragrance to enhance the aroma and aim at increasing the jasmine tea’s freshness and richness of aroma, and we call the whole process as “Wu Yin Yi Ti”.

Mr. Chen is the producer of this Jasmine Snow Bud Green Tea. He has learned tea making since he was 15 years old, and his fate with jasmine tea has been going on for 40 years. Over these years, making jasmine tea was very familiar thing to him. He also creates his own special making style, so that his tea is widely sought-after by tea lovers.
During conversations, Mr. Chen told us: “Jasmine tea is one of the most complicated varieties in the field of tea making. The more the scenting times, the more complex the processes will be, and the greater the risk of ruin tea. But on the contrary, it also means the higher grade of the jasmine tea if we scent the tea successfully. Generally, it’s very hard to scant the tea over 5 times. Besides, the quality of tea buds will also affect the taste of jasmine tea. The tea buds picked in spring will be processed immediately and then store in freezer. When jasmine flowers blooming in summer, tea buds can be took out and further processed into jasmine flower tea. Meanwhile, due to the blooming and spit incense time of jasmine flowers is in the night, so the most important time of tea making is in the night. Tea makers always scent the tea overnight. Many times scenting always makes them exhausted… Making tea is hard, but since you love it, then all the hardship is worthy.”He said, with a smile on his face. His passionate and dedication for jasmine tea touched everyone. I think this is why Mr. Chen’s tea is very sought-after by tea lovers.

Scented green teas have a history that stretches back over a thousand years. The innovation of adding spices and flowers to green teas started during the Chinese Song Dynasty, around 960AD.
During the Ming Dynasty, in the 1500's, the modern production method of Jasmine scented tea, with the flowers being added to the tea during processing, prior to drying, was introduced and perfected. In this time though, jasmine tea was still rare, due to the increased complexities the processing required.
However later in the mid 1800's during the Qing Dynasty, production techniques were perfected and the number of tea farms rapidly increased, leading to greater production volumes and cheaper prices, culminating in it becoming hugely popular in China, a popularity that has remained to this day.
