A good jasmine tea does not contain any jasmine flowers. The highest grades of jasmine tea are made with green tea. Yin Hao is one of the most meticulous styles of scented tea. The tea leaves and jasmine blossoms never touch. They are arranged in alternating layers in a hermetically sealed box. The box is sealed allowing the jasmine blossoms give off their alluring scent for the young tea leaves to absorb. This process is repeated over 7 days.
This green tea scented with night blooming jasmine is smooth to drink because it is made with young, tender leaves including lots of white tips.
