An elegant blend of white, green and oolong China teas, with a subtle scent of jasmine.

This is is a small batch, very limited edition. Made on a whim, by our founder and tea-blender Henrietta (@raretealady) to soften the drawing in of winter with a warming, fragrant sip.

The teas all come from the Fujian region of South East China, blended here for the first time.

A subtle note

Jasmine has always been a little too intense like perfume is to me. So I looked forward to delivery of your rare jasmine blend. Very pleased after brewing my first pot two more times. Enjoy the more subtle jasmine that is just a memory by the third brew. Perfect!

Deeply disappointing - no jasmine flavour

I like a jasmine tea which has a lovely floral scent. 'Subtle' is an overstatement. This tea has no jasmine taste at all. There's nothing wrong with the tea itself, but if, like me, what's attracted you to this is the word 'jasmine' then I would recommend you should give this a miss.

Tasting Notes

The gentlest waft of jasmine, as though passing by an open window on a summer night, where jasmine vines entwine the walls outside.   

The jasmine is the top note, layered gently over fresh, grassy flavours of the whole leaf tea green; the gentle apricot notes of white tea; and the more luscious tropical fruit flavours of a yellow-gold oolong. 

Quantity

Use 2g of leaf per 150ml of water.

Temperature

For the optimum infusion use 80°C (176°F) water.

Time

Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes, tasting regularly.

Infusions

You can infuse these leaves at least twice. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.
