Scented with night-blooming jasmine, this green tea is exceptionally smooth to drink because it is made with young, tender tea leaves, including many white tips. This Jasmine Yin Hao is meticulously crafted in a process that takes seven days to complete.
Did you know that a good jasmine tea does not actually contain any jasmine flowers? In making Jasmine Yin Hao, the tea leaves and flower blossoms never touch. Instead, they are arranged in alternating layers in a hermetically sealed box, which is sealed for seven days to allow the fresh tea leaves to absorb the alluring jasmine scent.
