A favorite among the many scented teas in China, one of the first instances when Jasmine tea was used dates back to the days of the Song Dynasty’s regime. The jasmine blooms are picked on Spring mornings just before they bloom. Once the jasmine buds bloom in the evening, they are infused with tea leaves for four hour periods or longer, repeatedly for about 6-7 times. The jasmine tea has been made in the Fujian province.
