2023 Yangchun Snow Jasmine Green Tea
What is Green Tea?
A timeless favorite, green tea is all about freshness! Unoxidized and bright, green tea is known for its light, clean taste, natural sweetness, enticing scent, and easy-drinking feel.
Yangchun Snow Jasmine is a green tea that has been aromatized with jasmine flowers. Fresh green tea is laid flat and covered with jasmine flowers, which release their scent during the night. The next day, the flowers are replaced with new flowers, and the tea is aromatized again.
This process continues until the tea is scented four times and the jasmine scent inundates the tea. Unlike most jasmine teas sold in the West, which use scented oil to create jasmine scent, the jasmine aroma from this tea will not wash off after the first steep. Instead, it works its way into the tea flavor, lasting throughout the tea session.
The tea also has fresh jasmine flowers mixed in, to add a bit more aroma and visual interest during the tea-making process.
I got this Yangchun Snow Jasmine because it made me think of one word: classic.
The light green-white color of the leaves, the excellent jasmine fragrance, the cool, soft mouth feel, sweet taste, and easy-drinking nature of this tea is what people think when they hear jasmine tea.
If you're a jasmine lover, I think this tea can become an everyday tea for you. Excellent quality at a great price.

VALUE AND QUALITY
Jesse's Teahouse started because Jesse realized the quality and value of the tea directly from China was so much higher than what could be easily found in the States -- and around the world.
Jesse contacted his tea friends, they shipped their best teas to him, and he sends them to you. That's it!
These teas are high quality and can be re-steeped multiple times! Each serving makes between 4-8 cups of tea, so at around $.50 a cup, you get top quality Chinese teas at a price that you can enjoy every day.
NOT JUST TEA, TEA CULTURE
Jesse believes the key to making good tea is to help his Chinese tea friends share not just their best teas, but the best ways to make the teas.
That's why each box comes also comes with an info card that tells you:
- Tea Origin
- Steep Temperature
- Steep Time
- Directions for both teapot steeping and gaiwan steeping
All Jesse’s Teahouse Tea Friends (that’s you now!) also get access to private YouTube videos where Jesse and his Chinese tea friends show you how to make the teas and explain the tea-making process.
The links are on QR codes on the back of the info card included in the tea box.
Don't Forget Your Tea Pets!
In Chinese Gongfu Tea Tradition, Tea Pets accompany you at teatime and you "raise" them by feeding them tea! Check out the tea pets at the bottom of this page.
