ymy 1690 jasmine green tea
by stash tea (1 review)
Jasmine is one of the most popular teas in China. Jasmine is picked in the heat of the day, when the tiny flowers are closed tight. The blossoms open in the cool of the evening, when they are blended with the tea leaves to create this fragrant refreshing beverage. In 1690, Japan was ruled by the Tokugawa Shogunate, the Manchus had repelled the Mongols, Louis XIV ruled in splendor from his new palace in Versailles, Czar Peter had just attained the throne and Johann Sebastian Bach was five years old. And that same year in Japan, the Yamamoto family began producing premium teas, a tradition that continues to this day. More than three centuries of experience go into the selection and processing of Yamamotoyama Teas, among the finest in the world.
This his a very good quality green jasmine tea. Recommended
