Jasmine Buds do not taste like jasmine tea! So don't expect to be able to add these to a tea and have it taste like jasmine. Jasmine Tea is made from green tea and a distillation of the jasmine flavor from these flowers.
Bring filtered or spring water to 180°F. Add 1.5 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 3 minutes.
