The most tender green tea leaves and silvery down-covered buds are gently steamed after plucking and individually wrapped around slivers of bamboo so as to create the remarkable spiral shape, and are then scented with fresh jasmine blossoms.
During the traditional scenting process, the tea is married with seven times its weight in jasmine flowers which blossom in the cool night air and leave behind their lavish and intoxicating fragrance.
When steeped as an iced tea, it very simply transforms into a remarkably refreshing thirst-quencher.

Taste and Strength Truly refreshing and richly fragrant.
When to Drink Ideal at any time of day.
Steeping Instructions For best results, steep 1 teaspoon per 12 ounces of water that has just come off the boil for for 3-5 minutes, depending on taste.
