Why most jasmine tea use green tea not black tea? The short answer is because black tea is not easy to absorb the jasmine aroma although a lot of people like the smooth of black tea.
We didn’t have the move to work out this problem until one day, someone reported the jasmine green tea received was stale, this is a serious problem, finally we found it’s mostly because of the too long time shipping, we can not change that shipping situation but we can make the tea adapt it, that’s the original move of this tea.
Bet on the future
As we think the COVID-19 might be there for quite long time, so we need to work out a new tea immediately. In order to improve the absorption of black tea, we made some experiments, ruined some teas, finally the Shaking technology applied craft got a success, this Shaking technology was found on Oolong tea only, also the leaves need to be very young, more specificity pre-qingming festival, normally earlier than April 4 and the altitude needs to be higher than 800m.
Then leave it until the jasmine blooming day coming, the tricks are good quality flower and air-open roaster machine or it will get water taste if air-closed roaster used.
The funning part is, most of Jasmine flower is planted in the South of China, Heng County not Fujian province anymore, that’s over 2000km and our black tea needs to travel forth and back after jasmine scenting, that’s 4000km, long shot aha?!
