Jasmine Green Lichee has the added benefit of juicy tart lichee and ethereal Jasmine to infuse the grassy green leaves with an added brightness and touch of pizzazz. The flavor of the tea is incredible – tangy notes of lichee dance above the exotic tones of jasmine intertwined with touches of honey, citrus and green apple. From the first sip you’ll understand what makes it so popular. A tea best enjoyed with friends! A little about our base tea: This tea is based on a Sencha style green tea from Hunan. Interestingly enough, both green and black teas can be produced from the same bushes. During manufacture, the freshly plucked leaves are steamed immediately and then bruised either by machine or hand. During the steaming process, the tea is layered with jasmine blossoms and lichee. Next the leaf is pan-fired - which imparts a distinctive glossy look and feel - and then it is dried. Unscented Senchas typically have dark green, needle shaped leaves and produce a pale green to yellow, very bright and smooth cup with a sweetish, honey-like finish.
