This is my second order from Teacakes and I must say the service is first class. The price of the green-tea jasmine blossom mix is very competitive and the tea tastes delicious. I order 1 kg at a time as the price and quantity tick all my boxes. The tea is always well packaged and well in date.

Excellent quality and service
I have been buying this Jasmine blossom tea from Teacakes for 2 years. The flavour is lovely, it keeps my digestion perfect and 1kg lasts for 6 months.
Service is excellent. I always look forward to the little free samples that come with the order.

Jasmine tea is one of the most widely loved green teas available with an unmistakable floral bouquet, in China, they call this tea ‘Jasmine #1’.
We have captured the powerful sweetness to give our blend its full yet soft aroma, then enhanced with the addition of jasmine blossoms to give the tea a
stunning visual appeal.
It is important, to begin with, high-quality green tea that has been produced between the middle of March and the middle of May.
Equally important for jasmine tea are fine jasmine blossoms - only flowers that bloom between the 1st of May and the end of May
(these have the most intense aroma). There are many different grades of jasmine tea. This particular grade is the first grade below the exotic jasmines.
It has all the flavour, aroma and great green tea qualities but not the expensive price.
China /Fujian Province
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.
Today, hot air is passed through the jasmine blossoms and then filtered through the tea so that the blossoms can be used several times, the blossoms are then used to decorate the tea. Produced in both China and Taiwan, Jasmine tea yields a cup with all the concentrated heady bouquet of a garden in bloom.
The result is a tea of beauty and elegance that will captivate your senses with a powerful sweetness that gives our blend its full yet soft aroma.
