Angel's Comment:

With Jasmine petals, this tea is characterized by its infusion-enduring jasmine fragrance and will be a good choice for tea lovers who are fond of jasmine flavor.

It's a wonderful experience to see the still scene of the snow-white jasmine petals, which is reminiscent of beautiful snow flowers, floating in the bright yellowish tea liquor let along taking a sip to enjoy its taste. After having been scented and flavored up to 4 times with jasmine blossoms, the pleasant, fresh jasmine aroma and flavor absorbed by the leaves still can be apperceived even after several infusions. Only a few cups of this tea can make your rooms filled with jasmine fragrance. This is the very tea suitable for your leisure time either in your office or at home.

Craft: Yi Ti (一提, known as Ti Hua )

Except for being scented for 4 times, this type of Mo Li Piao Xue Jasmine Green Tea has undergone a special process called “Yi Ti”, also known as: Ti Hua (提花: final scenting). The purpose of Ti Hua aimed to enhance the intensity of jasmine fragrance and its refreshing notes. It only selects first grade jasmine flower that is featured with large petal, pure white color and strong fragrance. In order to retain most of its fragrance, the blended green tea and jasmine petals will not to be dried any more after the final scenting. Generally, the whole process of Ti Hua needs 6-8 hours, for every 100 kg of tea, it needs at least 6-8 kg flowers to be blended.

History

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.
