Jasmine Celestial Chinese Loose Leaf Green Tea Heavenly Scented Healthy Traditional Tea


£5.00




  • This Jasmine Celestial is a tippy, large leaf curled green China tea from Fujian mixed with just the right amount of fresh jasmine blossoms to produce a very delicate and light premium tea.
  • Jasmine tea is much admired for its subtlety and is the most famous scented tea in China.
  • Usually produced using green tea as the base in China, in the UK Black Tea Jasmine is more typical.
  • Tea leaves for the Celestial are harvested in the early spring and stored until the late summer when  jasmine flowers are in bloom.
  • Jasmine flowers are picked early in the day when the small petals are tightly closed. The flowers are kept cool until nightfall, then during the night jasmine flowers open, and release their fragrance, and this is when the tea scenting takes place. 
  •  It takes over four hours for the tea to absorb the fragrance and flavour of the jasmine blossoms.
  • The scenting process can be repeated as many as six or seven times for top grades such as Yin Hao.
  • The tea absorbs moisture from the fresh Jasmine flowers so it must be dried again to prevent spoilage. 
  • You will receive 50 grams of tea for £5.00 this will allow you to make 25 cups of tea and can be re-infused. Two grams per cup, this is twenty pence per cup. 
  • At Gently Stirred every order is gift wrapped so if you're buying for a number of different people just add that information at checkout
