Jasmine Nights is a lovely blended green tea with a hint of mint and the light aroma and aftertaste of Jasmine and Cardamom. It is light, energetic, delicate-bodied tea, perfect for cool summer nights. It is an especially good green tea for those that dislike the grassy flavor of more pure greens. And because it is a blend, it is also more forgiving during the brewing process than pure green teas.
The word Jasmine comes from the Persian yasmin, which, rather appropriately, means "gift from God." Jasmine, which is a member of the genus of the olive plant, grows as a shrub or vine. Quite romantically, the Jasmine flower blossoms only at night, and its petals are plucked in the mornings as a tight bud. The petals of the plant are what are used to create teas, perfumes, syrups, incense, and essential oils.
Bring filtered or spring water to 180°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 3 minutes.
