Did You Know?
Tea Forté Jasmine green tea is recognized as one of the finest examples in the world. To be given this definitive recognition our jasmine tea is naturally scented using only fresh blooming jasmine blossoms for a soft jasmine aroma and taste that never overpowers the quality of the leaf.
Scenting green tea with Jasmine flowers is a centuries old practice requiring an astonishing amount of skill, time and craftsmanship. For only a few months in the summer, Chinese tea growers are able to create this delicate and complex tea.
The jasmine flower buds are hand-plucked in the early afternoon, when the sun is out and the dew has evaporated. The pickers carefully select only those buds set to bloom that same evening. Rapidly harvesting thousands of tiny buds that are perfectly poised to bloom is a feat of remarkable dexterity and concentration. The exquisite jasmine flowers are then stored in a dry place until evening when they are placed into basket trays and layered over tea leaves. The blossoms open in the cool night air, releasing their intoxicating flavor, scenting the tea. This is usually done in a closed room and it takes four hours for the tea to absorb the fragrance and distinctive flavor of the fragile jasmine blossoms.
The quality of jasmine tea is determined by the quality of green tea used as its base and the effectiveness of the scenting. Higher-grade teas require that the scenting process be repeated as many as seven times.
Tea Forté uses the highest quality organic green tea that is married as many as seven times with a new batch of fresh flowers each time. Scenting 200 pounds of tea can take 600 pounds of flower blossoms.Tasting Notes:

Has the best flavor and aroma I have ever tasted or smelled. This is excellent for morning or evening.
I happened to walk into a store called "Tea Thyme" and was introduced to this lovely tea after about ten minutes of browsing, I couldn't be happier! This tea is wonderful. It isn't too strong, nor is it bland. Great for early morning's or right before bed.
introduced to this wonderful jasmine green tea at Everyday Noodles in Pittsburgh last week. went back for more yesterday! soothes the winter blues
I love this. It is an experience in itself. Had something like this in London at High Tea.
This tea is so delicous and tastes exactly like jasmine! Its so relaxing and nice.
This is a simple, mild jasmine tea. Very aromatic, with a slightly bitter finish. Nothing extraordinary, but quite satisfying.
I brew this tea and drink it iced, unsweetened (normally I prefer sweet iced tea). It is wonderful and floral, yet not too flowery. Refreshing!
I'm newer to tea drinking and I thought this would be a good tea to try out. The green tea flavor isn't quite as strong as I like it to be and I felt that the Jasmine took over. Overall a nice tea but I wouldn't mark it as a favorite of mine.
I had no idea when I ordered tea that they would bring me this wonderful treat. I added a little honey and enjoyed every sip. It made me feel refreshed and I had to take one to go so I could find out how to order it later. What a treat:) I am anxious to try to the other brands of green tea.
Someone said this of a tea in the past, and I must say the same thing with this tea. It really formed a great "aroma"-therapy moment when I drank this tea the first time last April at a Specialty Cafe in my cruise ship. Love, love, love.
Although I brewed this tea at a cooler temperature and for the correct length of time, I found its flavor to be astringent and lacking in the floral notes that I associate with Jasmine tea. The "grassy overtones" description is appropriate.
I stumbled on this tee by surprise and was absoultely delighted with it. I agree with one ladys review when she said it is my spescial treat... in the afternoon. A gift one gives to oneself in quite joy... Nabila Abu-Hantash
The aroma and taste of this tea is wonderful! I'm a mother of 3 preschoolers, and this tea is my special afternoon treat; a getaway! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
I had this tea at the Four Seasons Hotel in Seattle, Washington and after drinking it every morning I was there. I ordered a box set! Just amazing aroma and taste. I highly recommend this this tea.
This green tea is so aromatic and it tastes as great as it smells. If this tea’s scent was a perfume, I would wear it!
