Jasmine is ancient, and it is hard to determine where it was first grown. It is likely native to areas of the Middle East, including Pakistan, where it is the national flower, and India. It is believed the plant was imported to China. Today, it is grown in many temperate areas of the world, including areas of France, Italy, Portugal, and southern parts of the United States.
The jasmine’s white flower blossoms release a powerful fragrance. Its aroma is created through a method that is over 800 years old. The jasmine blossoms are gathered during summer evenings and spread amongst green tea leaves to infuse the floral flavor into the tea.
A traditionally scented jasmine tea is prized for its sweetness, slightly perfumed fragrance, and delicately achieved flavor balance between the floral blossoms and the delicate tea leaves.
