This blossoming tea is as flavorful as it is beautiful. Green leaves converge in a spiral at the peak of the hand-tied bloom, which gradually sinks in warm water as its tea leaf tendrils slowly unfurl. In a dramatic display, it reveals translucent, green-yellow petals surrounding a striking purple-red amaranth core. The aroma of this flowering tea is one of intense jasmine blossoms, with decadent and unexpected notes of vanilla. The full flavor has a slight jasmine sharpness that's balanced by a flowery sweetness. The lingering aftertaste of jasmine delights the palate and leaves you thirsting for more. Although a five-minute steeping is enough to release Grand Jasmine Mu Dan's abundant flavor, it can be infused for up to 30 minutes, making it ideal for displaying and serving at dinner parties. After longer steepings, it does not get overly astringent. Instead, its complexity evolves to include a tinge of espresso-like richness and depth.
3.5 oz is usually equivalent to 12-14 individual globes.
