A jasmine scented green tea made from ancient tea trees grown wild in Bat Xat close to the border between Vietnam and Yunnan. The tea is produced from 100 year old tea trees without any artificial fertilisers or pesticides by a co-operative of White Dzao minority farmers under the supervision of Ms Nguyen Thi Thuy. The tea is then scented in the summer with fresh jasmine flowers, absorbing its heady, floral fragrance.
This is a delicious, refreshing jasmine tea with a light scenting which allows the sweet, fruity flavour of the base tea to shine. The taste is delicate and fresh, with a slightly astringent bite that balances out the sweetness. Unlike many Chinese jasmine teas this tea has been made with the Assamica varietal which has a more robust taste and needs greater care when brewing. It is recommend that lowering the temperature to around 70-75°C and making short infusions is the best way to brew this delicate tea.
