Jasmine Green Tea (茉莉花茶/香片)
In Chinese restaurants, jasmine tea is regularly referred to as 香片 (xiangpian, or lit. fragrant strips) because of the tea's refreshing, yet intoxicatingly sweet, floral fragrance. This jasmine tea consists of mature green tea that holds up to the rich jasmine petals that they are dried with. Recreate the taste of the Chinese banquet halls wherever you are with this classic brew.
Available in lovely 50g canisters to gift, or a set of 3 for the jasmine tea lover.
