Jasmine tea (hua cha) is tea from the Camellia Sinensis plant which is infused with fresh jasmine blossoms during the curing process.
Green tea is usually the base for jasmine tea (i.e., "jasmine green tea"), but sometimes white and, more rarely, black or oolong are used.

How Jasmine Tea is Made
Jasmine teas are made in the summer when the jasmine blossoms are in bloom. This is the only time jasmine tea can be properly made.
Fresh green tea is cured directly with the jasmine blossoms and then separated. In some case, jasmine blossoms are also left in the or incorporated into the tea leaves in a flower arrangement.
Summer jasmine blossoms are poured over the tea.
Screens are used to filter the blossoms from the tea.
Teas considered highest quality are highly prized.
Reserved mostly for the wealthy and for high
government officials, these teas are rarely found
outside of China. In tea shops, they are extravagant
gifts rather than everyday teas.
JASMINE TEA VARIETIES
There are many kinds of jasmine tea. Some are intricately tied in fancy flowers.
JASMINE TEA SERVING TIPS
- Use pure, whole tea. If you use jasmine tea pearls, you can simply pour water over them, and they will sink to the bottom and open up, so you don't need a filer.
Powdered teabags should be avoided because they
tend to be stale, low-quality teas. With tea, the fresher the better.
- Use pure water. Never drink fluoridated water; there is no evidence that ingesting
fluoride has any health benefits, but high levels are toxic and can even be immediately
- Avoid boiling hot water. Drinking scalding liquid isn't good for the body, but steeping
tea too hot may cause it to lose its health properties. As with any plant, there is a big
difference between the cooked and raw leaves.
