Approximately 170 tea bags per pound. This tea is the oldest of scented teas. Its base is a Poochong tea (slightly less fermented than oolong tea) and as the tea is being dried with hot air, fresh jasmine petals are placed in front of the fans. When the petal’s fragrance has been exhausted, the spent petals are placed in the base tea. Contrary to popular belief, the finest sweetest grades contain fewer petals. The world’s finest Jasmines come from the China province of Fujian. This tea will produce a cup that has the fragrance of a garden in bloom, with a liquor that is lightly sweet and very smooth. Ingredients: organic green tea and organic jasmine flowers.
