About this tea

Tea Story

Jasmine teas vary according to the quality of the tea base and the skill and flower quality used for scenting. Yin Hao Jasmine delivers the best of everything. The tea is plucked in April during the Spring harvest, then tucked away until August when the finest jasmine blooms. The flowers are picked at noontime and kept until nightfall, when the temperature cools and the blooms open. Then the flowers and tea are blended together in layers, known as “marrying.” After several hours, the petals are removed and fresh flowers are applied. While ordinary grades are scented a couple of times, Yin Hao’s heady, otherworldly aroma comes from five to seven sets of fresh flowers.

Brewing Tips

Start with a preheated cup or teapot.
Measure 1 spoonful (3g) of tea for each cup of water.
Bring the water to boil; let it cool for 30 seconds (200° F) before steeping tea for 4 minutes.
Strain leaves while pouring.
