Jasmine Romance offers green tea lovers a truly sophisticated cuppa. Infusing specially selected Chinese green tea with pure jasmine blossoms, this fragrant botanical brew soothes and transports with its exotic charms.
To create this blend, our Tea Masters start with a base of fine green teas from China’s Jiangxi, Anhui and Zhejiang provinces. Known as the ‘Golden Triangle’, this area is renowned for the quality of its green tea production.To transform the blend, the tea is layered with freshly-picked jasmine flower buds and left overnight. As the buds open, they infuse the tea with their uniquely sweet and floral aroma. This process is repeated over several nights to get just the right balance, resulting in a rounded green tea singing with fragrant jasmine aromas.
We recommend brewing the teabags in hot water at around 80 to 85°C – the ideal temperature to release the tea’s golden colour and evocative perfume, without drawing out any bitterness. Simply pour freshly boiled water into your cup or pot and leave it for two to three minutes before adding the teabag, or use a kettle with a variable temperature setting.
Enjoy Jasmine Romance Green Tea without milk to savour its sweet, dried grass notes and seductive fragrance. This blend’s light character makes it a perfect brew to enjoy with, or after, a meal, or try it as a refreshing pick-me-up throughout the day. In sunny weather, you could even make this as an iced jasmine green tea. Simply steep the teabag in hot water (with a little sugar to taste) then top with ice and chilled water. Keep cool while you let the antioxidants from the jasmine green tea make for a fabulously revitalising infusion.

The quality of water used has an impact on the quality of the tea. Always use freshly drawn water or filtered water.
Heat fresh water to just under a boil or to a temperature between 80-85°C using an electric hot water heater or a stove top kettle.
Once the water reaches the appropriate temperature, it should be poured immediately over the tea bag. Keep the teapot covered to retain heat. Time steeping carefully and infuse for 2-3 minutes. When the tea is done steeping, immediately remove the tea and lightly stir.
This green tea has less caffeine than our black teas. It's important to keep in mind that brew time accounts for the primary influence over a tea's caffeine content.
