Traditionally, layers of jasmine blossoms were placed between fine green tea and in time the scent of the jasmine permeated the tea. Today, hot air is passed through jasmine blossoms and filtered through the tea so that the blossoms can be used more than once. The exhausted blossoms are then used to decorate the tea. Produced in both China and Taiwan, jasmine tea yields a cup with all the concentrated heady bouquet of a garden in bloom.
Hot tea brewing method: When preparing by the cup, this tea can be used repeatedly, about 3 times. The secret is to use water that is about 180F or 90C. Place 1 teaspoon in your cup and let the tea steep for about 3 minutes. Begin enjoying a cup of enchantment but do not remove the leaves from the cup. Once the water level is low, add more water, and repeat until the flavor of the tea is exhausted.
Alternatively, as with all quality teas, scoop 2-4 teaspoons of tea into the teapot and pour in boiling water that has been freshly drawn. Steep for 2-4 minutes to taste, stir, and pour into your cup but do not add milk or sugar since green tea is enjoyed straight-up.
Iced tea-brewing method (to make 1 qt): Scoop 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat-resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher, straining the leaves. Add ice and top off the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water. Please note that this tea may tend to be cloudy or milky when poured over ice.
