JASMINE TEA / 茉莉花茶 – Pinyin mòlì huāchá

The tea leaves are harvested during early spring and stored until the late summer when fresh jasmine flowers are in bloom. Typically, jasmine tea has green tea as the tea base; however, white tea and black tea are also used.

Jasmine flowers are picked early in the day when the small petals are tightly closed. The flowers are kept cool until nightfall. During the night jasmine flowers open, and release their fragrance, and this is when the tea scenting takes place.

The resulting flavour of jasmine tea is subtly sweet and highly fragrant. It is the most famous scented tea in China…


Jasminum officinale, known as the common jasmine or just jasmine, is a species of flowering plant in the olive family Oleaceae. Its origin lies in Central Asia: Caucasus, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan & the Himalayas.

In ancient China jasmine was said to come from Byzantium. In the East and in China for thousands of years scented oils are extracted from flowers. Its Chinese name, Yeh-hsi-ming is a version of the Arabic name Jasamin: “fragrant oil” and comes original from the Persian word Yasmin. It is also known as poet's jasmine, valued for the intense fragrance of its flowers in summer…

The flowers are worn by women in their hair in southern and southeast Asia. The delicate jasmine flower opens only at night and may be plucked in the morning when the tiny petals are tightly closed, then stored in a cool place until night. The petals begin to open between six and eight in the evening, as the temperature lowers.

Jasmine is also known as the 'King of Oils' – a very expensive but strong oil, which can be used in low concentrations.
