Considered one of the traditional scented teas in Việt Nam, the Jasmine Green has an unmistakable floral and perfume-y characteristic. The laborious process of layering the tea with jasmine flower buds, leaving it overnight before getting separated is repeated for several nights.
True flower blended teas are gems that are especially hard to come by these days due to the skill and time it takes to craft. Taste the flavors of this fragrant blend made with freshly picked jasmine flowers and a base of high quality wild (Shan Tuyết) green tea. Jasmine flower blossoms are harvested only for a short period during the spring in Hanoi, making this tea one that you don't want to miss out on!

This is a very high quality green tea with a beautiful Jasmine aroma. It has become one of my new favorites in my tea rotation.
A wonderful afternoon tea - this Jasmine Green has such vivid flavor. Excellent quality, 5-stars!
I gifted this tea to my dad for Father’s Day. It reminded him of his youth in Vietnam (jasmine tea was one of his favorites growing up) and he’s now requesting that the fragrance be turned into a cologne. It’s so soothing and the flavor is mild yet there’s a nice earthiness in the aftertaste. I’ll definitely be getting more for him soon!
