What's in Basilur Jasmine Green Tea

Classic jasmine green tea is made with Chinese green tea leaves, scented with fresh jasmine flowers. This process is repeated until the tea is fragrant enough, and all flowers are removed. Today, there are different ways of making jasmine green tea. Some blends may contain dried jasmin blossoms, other are flavoured with natural flavourings. Scenting and flavouring are different processes that result in different flavours as well.

So what's in Basilur Jasmine green tea? First, it's made with Ceylon (Sri Lankan) green tea, rather than Chinese tea. Next, this tea is flavoured with a natural jasmine flavour, rather than scented. And you'll see both things immediately upon opening the pouch.

The first thing you'll notice is an intense sweet jasmine scent. There's no deep smokiness like with many other jasmine green teas. Instead, it's very sweet and floral, on the verge of being perfumy. As it is extremely strong, this scent may not be for everyone. However, it's also extremely pleasant and inviting.

How does it taste?

To make a cup of jasmine green tea, bring fresh water to a boil and let it cool down to 80-85 degrees Celsius. Use 1 heaped teaspoon or 1 tea bag per cup of water and steep for 2-3 minutes.

This tea has a very perfumy flavour that feels sweet. There's absolutely no bitterness at all in this tea. It feels very delicate, which is quite uncommon for jasmine green tea, especially . Classic tea bags contain dust and small leaf particles and often result in a bitter and strong infusion.

Green tea in this blend is light, and the jasmine flavour is lighter than the scent might suggest. However, it's strong enough to serve it iced. It would be a perfect treat for spring and summer afternoon tea parties.

If you love the scent of jasmine, especially jasmine essential oils, rather than classic jasmine teas, you will love this tea, too. In fact, even if you don't like classic jasmine teas, you may find this tea inviting. This tea would appeal to those that like strong flavours, but don't like the bitterness common in jasmine green teas. It's quite surprising for a jasmine green tea in a traditional tea bag not to have any bitterness at all. However, if you don't like perfumy blends, you won't like Basilur's jasmine green tea, either.
