Jasmine Green Tea
The key to this divine jasmine tea is the high quality green tea, married with the finest jasmine blossoms to bring you the most sensationally sweet aroma. Jasmine flowers are picked during the day and layered with tea leaves during the evening when they open to release their incredible perfume. It results in a taste that is sweet, smooth and delicate. It will also help keep you gently caffeinated throughout the day. Last but not least this tea is a Great Taste Award winner.
How to make Jasmine tea? Often green teas like Jasmine tea can taste overly bitter if brewed incorrectly. The key to brewing this great cup of jasmine green tea is to remember that "Less is more!" Less tea, less temperature, less time!
Use 1 teaspoon of loose leaf or 1 pyramid bag per cup. Brew for only 2-3 mins at 80-85ºC. This will help avoid any bitterness, and instead will bring out the beautifully smooth sweetness of the green tea.
So how do you get the correct temperature? If you don't have a temperature controlled kettle, just let your kettle cool down or add a small amount of cold water when brewing - fill your cup (or pot) with about one quarter cold water and three quarters boiling water, to give you a great temperature for brewing. Then add your tea leaves, and brew. Best without milk and use filtered water if you can. Once you've had your first cup you can also add more water over the tea leaves to enjoy a second infusion.
Food pairing: It also goes exceptionally well with hard cheeses like cheddar making it taste even creamier. It also goes with fried foods, as it cuts nicely through the oil, as well as being great to drink throughout the day on its own.
