The origins of our Jasmine Green Tea


Fragrant and summery, our fresh No. 53 Jasmine Green Tea is a naturally infused Chinese loose leaf tea perfect for partnering with food or giving your afternoon a lift.

Harvested in Fuzhou, south-east China, this high-quality tea combines long curly leaves of Camellia sinensis mixed with heady Jasmine blossom for a delightfully floral brew. As well as imparting a typically alluring aroma, the Jasmine adds a subtle sweetness that beautifully balances this premium tea's grassy, nutty notes.

You can enjoy this delicate, light golden infusion as it is or with a squeeze of honey if you'd like to add a dash of sweetness. If you're looking to pair it with food, think of cereals and pastries for breakfast or cold roasted meats and sandwiches in the afternoon.


What are the health benefits of Jasmine tea?


As well as providing a delicate pick-me-up, jasmine tea has a range of potential health benefits, thanks to its flavonoids called catechins, which studies have shown may be linked to good cardiovascular function, weight management and even cancer prevention. In addition, because of their minimal processing, green teas are also higher in other antioxidants such as carotenoids and ascorbic acid (vitamin C) than other teas.

Learn about how this tea is made


How is this loose leaf tea made?


Jasmine tea is a Chinese speciality that is enjoyed all over the world. Typically, Jasmine tea is green-or white tea-based, naturally infused with jasmine buds and Jasmine flower petals. At The Tea Makers of London, we work closely with some of the best Tea Farmers and producers globally, regularly visiting local tea producers, their plantations and production facilities to ensure that the teas we provide are of the utmost quality.

Each premium tea in our Jasmine Tea range is sourced from Fuzhou, the capital of Fujian province in China's southeast. With its subtropical climate, short dry winters and high rainfall, the area has historically proved ideal for growing jasmine plants and the tea bush, Camellia sinensis. Jasmine was originally planted in the third century and has been blended with green tea leaves since the Song dynasty era (960-1279 AD).

In spring, the finest tea leaves are carefully plucked and dried to prevent oxidation, then stored away until summer's Jasmine flower harvest, when they are carefully layered with the new blooms. Left for several hours, the essential oils of the Jasmine slowly seep into the tea leaves, mixing the natural flavours and aromas of both before the tea is gently heated to remove any residual moisture. This process is repeated up to seven times to ensure that the tea leaves take on a strong fragrance. This infusion method – referred to by tea professionals as 'scenting' – is an intricate process that requires many years of experience to perfect.

Rivers are of great importance for transport and irrigation. The climate here is temperate Humid Subtropical (CFA), with hot summers of high rainfalls and cool, dryer winters, with occasional snow in the northwest and at higher altitude. Across the year, the skies are mostly cloud-covered, with low wind. The province has a whole as varied vegetation, ranging from tropical to cold temperate species.

At lower elevations, the subtropical forests are home to evergreens, hardwood trees and confiners, lianas and ferns, along with a diverse fauna which includes many birds, amphibials and reptiles. Higher up, deciduous trees, conifers and rhododendrons are plentiful. Oolong, Black and smoked teas originate from the Wuyi mountains, in the North of the province.; whilst the white teas hail from Fuding and Zhenghe counties, closer to the coast, but still elevated, on rich, fertile forest soils. Rice cultivation is common in the valleys.
