Angel's Comment:

This Jasmine Mao Feng Green Tea is a perfect affordable daily tea for jasmine tea lovers.

Same as the Bi Tan Piao Xue Jasmine Green Tea, this Jasmine Mao Feng Green Tea also use the traditional scenting process, combining the Mao Feng green tea from Sichuan with the jasmine flowers from Hengxian County, so the tea has not only the freshness of green but also the aroma of jasmine. Unlike the final Ti Hua process of other jasmine green teas, this tea also uses a unique Chao Hua (pan-fry) after the scenting process. Chao Hua is to mix and fry the scented jasmine tea and the fresh jasmine flowers in proportion, which can not only increase the aroma jasmine, but also give a decoration role. After brewing, the tea taste sweet and rich. Tea lovers who prefer the strong and infusion-enduring tea, this could be a good choice for daily drinking.

Tea Farmer

Mr. Chen has been honing his craft since he was fifteen years old, and has worked with jasmine tea specifically for over forty years. As a result it has become extremely familiar to him, and he works it in his own special style - which has become one much sought after by tea lovers.

He has told us, “Jasmine tea is one of the most complicated varieties in all of tea-making. With more scenting steps the process becomes more and more complex, and so too does the risk of ruining the tea increase… but on the contrary, more steps results in a higher grade of jasmine tea if the scenting is successful. Buds picked in spring are immediately processed and stored in the freezer until the jasmine blooms in the summer; since the blooming time and the peak of the jasmine’s aroma occurs during the night, it is vital that the scenting step is done overnight. This often makes the tea workers exhausted. The entire process is difficult, but if you love doing it, in the end the hardship is more than worth it.”

 
Origin

Sichuan - Green Tea

Yibin City sits at the intersection between the Jinsha, Minjian, and Yangtze Rivers. Since ancient times this location has served as a transportation hub between the mainland and the southwest, and is also an important port to move Sichuan tea to the Jiangnan region. The climate here is humid with abundant rainfall and fertile soil, suitable for healthy tea tree growth.

Guangxi - Jasmine Flower

The jasmine used to scent this tea originates from Guangxi, and has earned its reputation nationwide. The most notable area of production is Hengxian, known as the City of Chinese Jasmine for its ability to produce flowers of both high yield and high quality.

History

Scented green teas have a history stretching back over a thousand years, to the first innovation of adding spices and flowers to tea during the Song Dynasty around 960 AD.

During the Ming Dynasty in the 1500s, the modern method of producing jasmine-scented tea, where the flowers are added to the tea during process prior to drying, was introduced - but at this time jasmine tea was rare, due to the complexities of the processing.

In the mid-1800s during the Qing Dynasty, production methods were perfected and the number of tea farms rapidly increased, which led to greater volumes and lowered prices. This in turn led to a surge in popularity, which the tea has maintained to this day.
