June Jasmine Green represents “Jestha” or June in Nepal when the fragrant jasmine blossoms are in full bloom. This tea is made of a blend of high-quality whole leaf green tea, jasmine blossoms, and dried orange peel. The pale gold liquor is accented by notes of dried jasmine, citron, and wildflower honey. As it is enjoyed, aromatic notes of gardenia and honeysuckle make this tea even more captivating.
One heaping teaspoon of tea per 8 ounce cup. Cool boiling water for 3 minutes, then steep tea 1 - 2 minutes.
This is a light tasting green tea. I enjoy the fragrance of jasmine, very relaxing. Thank you for such lovely teas.
Dear Ann, Thank you so much for your great feedback and for supporting NTT. We truly appreciate it. We hope you continue to enjoy our teas from Nepal.
One thing the description above doesn’t mention is that this blend contains orange peel in addition to jasmine. I’ve imagined for a while that orange and jasmine would be a match made in heaven, so when I saw that this tea was part of the Amoda sale, I had to give it a try!
The thing that I was immediately struck by when I first opened the envelope was just how visible the jasmine was in the blend. Mixed in with the dark green strands of leaf and chunks of dried orange peel were whole flowers. Huge! Like this:
