Jasmine Fuding Imperial Green Tea is a scented tea, which is made by a scenting process with jasmine flowers.
It has a delicious and rich jasmine aroma: the secret lies in the production process, when the tea leaves are scented with fresh jasmine flower petals at least twice. Perfect after meals, it possesses a long, very fresh floral aftertaste. Infusion in glass accessories is recommended to enjoy the beauty of the leaves rising and falling in the water creating a wonderful dance.
Tasting – Sight and smell
Small in size and delicately rolled, the leaves of this Jasmine Fuding Imperial green tea are a rather dark green-gray with an abundance of silvery-white buds. Once infused, the jasmine aroma comes through unmistakably, accompanied by very light fresh herbaceous notes and a vegetal, fruity scent reminiscent of olive oil. The color of the liquor in the cup is a rather dark golden yellow.

The first Jasmine Fuding Imperial green tea infusion has hints of white flowers, including jasmine of course, as top notes. The taste is very sweet, reminiscent of white sugar syrup; there is also a faint vegetable note, barely noticeable. With the second infusion, the herbaceous notes become more pronounced and hints of mountain flowers such as gentian can be detected. With the third and several subsequent infusions, hints of lemon balm also appear and the body becomes more oily, with hints in the flavor of young olive oil. The flowers are also always present in the closing, but the jasmine note is more subtle than in the initial infusions.
The first notes of Jasmine Fuding Imperial Green Tea are predominantly floral: there are hints not only of jasmine, but of other white flowers such as lily of the valley and magnolia, as well as hints of orange blossom. The middle notes are vegetal and delicate: freshly cut grass and herbs, such as verbena. There is also a slight citrusy hint of bergamot, which contributes to the overall feeling of extreme freshness. The body is light and silky, with only a slight astringency on the finish and a very long floral persistence, of which jasmine is the undisputed star.

How to prepare
Jasmine Fuding Imperial Green Tea should be brewed just like all green teas, in water around 90° C for 20-40 seconds.
This tea can be infused 4 or 5 times. To further appreciate this tea, we recommend brewing it directly in a glass cup, as is commonly done in China. This will not only allow you to enjoy the wonderful flavor and fragrance, but will also allow you to watch the tea leaves slowly expand and change during infusion.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry and dark place.
