Jasmine Huang Shan Ya – China
£5.95 – £14.90
A semi-fermented, small leaf, green tea with Jasmine flowers. The green tea brings a strong grassy edge with a lemon aftertaste and the Jasmine lightens the brew and adds a slightly smoky scent.
The trick is not to over brew green teas, it is best to boil your water and leave it for about 2-3 minutes to cool and then brew your green tea for no longer than 3 minutes. This allows the fresh spring grass flavour to come out but not the bitter edge that puts some people off green tea.
