Jasmine Romance offers green tea lovers a truly sophisticated cuppa. Infusing specially selected Chinese green tea with pure jasmine blossoms, this fragrant botanical brew soothes and transports with its exotic charms.
To create this blend, our Tea Masters start with a base of fine green teas from China’s Jiangxi, Anhui and Zhejiang provinces. Known as the ‘Golden Triangle’, this area is renowned for the quality of its green tea production.To transform the blend, the tea is layered with freshly-picked jasmine flower buds and left overnight. As the buds open, they infuse the tea with their uniquely sweet and floral aroma. This process is repeated over several nights to get just the right balance, resulting in a rounded green tea singing with fragrant jasmine aromas.
We recommend brewing the teabags in hot water at 100°C – the ideal temperature to release the tea’s golden colour and evocative perfume, without drawing out any bitterness. Simply pour freshly boiled water into your cup or pot and leave it for two to three minutes before adding the teabag, or use a kettle with a variable temperature setting.
Enjoy Jasmine Romance Green Tea without milk to savour its sweet, dried grass notes and seductive fragrance. This blend’s light character makes it a perfect brew to enjoy with, or after, a meal, or try it as a refreshing pick-me-up throughout the day. In sunny weather, you could even make this as an iced jasmine green tea. Simply steep the teabag in hot water (with a little sugar to taste) then top with ice and chilled water. Keep cool while you let the antioxidants from the jasmine green tea make for a fabulously revitalising infusion.

Each and every morning, my favourite cup of tea would be English Breakfast. It’s strong, it’s coloury, it’s got a wonderful nutty flavour that I really do enjoy, and it takes the milk well.William Manning, Senior Tea Taster
In the UK Head Office we taste over 500 cups of tea every day, to search for the best quality teas available from around the world.Dominic Marriot, Tea Taster
Later on in the afternoon I might try something like a Darjeeling that has the muscatel flavour, or maybe even a high-grown Ceylon, but definitely my favourite brew, and the one that I drink the most of, is English Breakfast.William Manning , Senior Tea Taster
