The difference between the hundreds of teas available and herbals such as this, is that all teas are made from Camellia Sinensis. Herbals, fruit infusions and tisanes are not. They are made from various parts of other plants which have their own characteristics and flavors. For whatever reason, these Jasmine flowers are virtually flavor neutral and add a lovely dimension of flowers and white coloration to a tea blend without affecting the taste profiles of the tea.
Ironically, these same Jasmine flowers would have been used in China to make Jasmine tea, delicately scenting the fresh green tea with their ethereal character. The best Jasmine flowers become available in early May in Fujian province. During this time the aroma in the fields of Jasmine can be intoxicating and probably one of the most memorable scents to which you could be exposed. It is when these flowers become available that they can be used to scent green tea, resulting in Jasmine Tea.
The flowers are used up to 9 times (depending upon their flavor and the time of year they are plucked). The process is: a layer of fresh jasmine flowers, tea, flowers, tea etc... Between each layer there is a fine mesh which keeps the flowers separated from the tea. Since Jasmine flowers are very expensive they are used repeatedly but by the 9th time the flavor in the flowers is virtually exhausted. At this point they are useable in this particular form - blend components for visual presentation of tea.

Also Recommended: I also love the White Slippery Elm Tea, excellent for Winter, just add a teaspoon to a large tea pot, with your favorite tea and it soothes a dry throat and nose due to heated rooms or cold weather....try it!
