Descriptions :
Jasmine tea (Chinese: 茉莉花茶; pinyin: mòlìhuā chá) is a type of scented tea which absorbs aroma from jasmine blossoms. Scented tea was known during the time of the Song Dynasty (960–1279); however it was reserved for the Imperial Court. Typically, jasmine tea employs green tea as the tea base; however, white tea and even black tea are also now used. The resulting flavor of jasmine tea is subtly sweet and highly fragrant. It is the most famous scented tea in China.[1]
Scented tea, was known in China since the Song Dynasty ruled over 800 years ago. Cai Xiang in Record of Tea records: "Tea has natural fragrance, entered as an imperial tribute item; to which a tiny amount of borneo camphor is added; to want to aid its fragrance." This proves, during the Song Dynasty, tea scented with musk and borneo camphor, although only available to royalty, was available at the time. The Jasmine plant is believed to have been introduced into China from Persia via India along with the introduction of Buddhism into China during the Han Dynasty.However, Jasmine tea did not become widespread until the Qing Dynasy when tea started to be exported in large quantities to the West; leading to the Opium Wars.
The jasmine plant is grown at high elevation in the mountains. Jasmine tea produced in the Chinese province of Fujian, enjoys the best reputation.Jasmine tea is also produced in Hunan, Jiangsu, Jiangxi, Guangdong, Guangxi, and Zhejiang provinces
