Details

Scented green teas go as far back as the Song Dynasty (960 AD -1279 AD). This was a period of great technological, economic, political, and culinary achievements. The Song Dynasty saw the invention of the compass and the establishment of true north, the creation of gunpowder warfare, the first banknotes, and moveable type. Food-wise the Song Dynasty saw the spread of imported exotic produce such as jujubes, the proliferation of noodle shops, and the development of a wide array of scented green teas.

Scented green teas were generally reserved for the Imperial court, though other high ranking and wealthy families were able to indulge in them. Green teas were placed in containers with powerful aromatics such as tangerine peel or cassia bark and allowed to absorb their flavor. One of the most prized scented teas was (and still is) jasmine. Jasmine blossoms are plucked at night when closed and then placed in containers of green tea. In the morning when the blossoms open they release their perfume, which is then absorbed by the tea leave. This can be repeated dozens of times.

Our most premium, hand-rolled green tea best preserves the leaf’s natural flavors and unfurls them in warm water. Along with the tea’s natural green aroma the water and steam pick up the pashmina soft fragrance of the jasmine blossoms for a truly enveloping cup.
