SINGLE ESTATE TEA

Amore Tea 405 * Jasmine Snow Bud (Xue Ya) – Scented green tea. The elegance of this jasmine scented version of early spring harvest, icked from the high-mountain varietal of Fujian Province, and named for the white snow-coloured buds. This tea is harvested early and captures nuanced and sweet tastes of the spring season. The leaf tends to be more curled and wiry. It is an aromatic tea that consists of twisted green and silver buds that are scented with jasmine blossom. It produces a full-bodied and rounded delicate flavour. The floral taste has a creamy mouthfeel with fruity floral notes and a lingering sweet aftertaste.

This tea is perfectly complimented by the fresh, floral flavours of spring harvested jasmine blossoms, as the fresh jasmine flowers were layered 7 consecutive times within the tea to impart a sweet, fruity aroma. It is usually described as having a delicate and elegant aroma. They layer the tea and the jasmine blossoms and leave the to infuse over night. It takes a minimum of four hours for the tea to absorb the jasmine’s fragrance. After the leaves and flowers are separated the process is repeated. For higher grades this process can be repeated up to 6 or 7 times! Scenting the leaves is a highly skilled and time consuming job, but we think, it’s well worth the effort which is all of our jasmine teas are scented!

Our particular jasmine snow bud tea is well-suited to brewing in a glass cup: the aroma of the leaves and jasmine flowers flow up from the liquid, the leaves themselves dancing within the cup while the jasmine slowly floats to the surface, and gradually becomes transparent like melting snow.
