Our delicious organic jasmine tea comes from the Kao Shui Tea Garden, one of the oldest organic and Fairtrade tea projects in China, the Da Zhang Shan. The farmer, Mr He, started with just 1⁄2 hectare of tea and now has one of the project's biggest farms.
To create the distinctive jasmine scent found in this tea, green tea is layered with jasmine flower buds, then left for 12 hours overnight. During this time, the buds open, releasing their floral scent into the tea. The next morning the buds are removed. This process is repeated numerous times, creating the distinct floral notes of jasmine and just a touch of green tea astringency.

About Extract Tea
We searched far and wide for a range of whole-leaf teas made with the same passion, ethical values and artisan craftsmanship that we bring to coffee. In the end, we decided to make our own.
Extract Tea is ethically sourced from the world's finest tea gardens. Plucked and processed by hand, then skilfully blended and packed as loose leaf or biodegradable pyramid bags. Even better, every cup of Extract Tea supports our GroundsUp charity collective, helping community projects here in the UK.
