There are many different grades of jasmine tea. This particular grade is the first grade below the exotic jasmines.
Traditionally Jasmine flowers are picked on an evening, the scent in the still air is rousing and spirituous, then layered with leaves of fine green tea, in time the scent of jasmine permutated the tea.

I have been buying this for three years now and drink it every day at work (after ditching coffee). I can refill my infuser tea bottle 3 or 4 times with the same leaves and still get a good flavour. My 1Kg order lasts me every week day for around 6 months (I decant some into a caddy as needed and reseal the bag and it stays really fresh).
I have tried many other brands and blends but this is the best I have found, excellent quality and taste.
My wife and I have made a pot of jasmine tea to start the day for many years but recently we have noticed that our regular brand of jasmine tea has had virtually no jasmine flowers. After a hunt around on the net I bought 1kg of Teacakes Jasmine Tea which has proved to be a good choice. The tea has plenty of flowers and a clean bright taste. The tea was packed in airtight bags which is just as well as I suspect though that it will take us 2 or 3 years to get through 1kg.
I am very impressed with this loose tea. It is full of flavour and I would buy it again . Also liked the little gift sample of another tea to try - great idea . Great quality teas and great service !
I literally don’t get my tea from anyone anymore! Teacakes of Yorkshire do the mixes blends with the best flavour, highly recommend!
If you buy your jasmine tea from the supermarket, stop it now. Stop it right now. This is so much better than brands you can get in UK supermarkets. It's cheaper and the taste is vastly better. I can't believe I waited so long to switch.
