We scent fragrant, smooth green tea leaves three times with night-blooming jasmine to make this delicate tea. In Jiangxi Province, China, rich soil and fluctuations in daily temperature yield a fragrant leaf. We lay organic jasmine flowers atop the tea until their scent is fully absorbed.
Flavor: Fragrant and smooth
