This handmade tea is called as Needle Snail Jasmine because that it is made by a kind of needle shape green tea, the finished product has been curled like snails and when brewed, it becomes neddles again. It is from farms at elevation of 1,300 meters, organic. The tea leaves are scented seven times to give the tea that strong Jasmine aroma. The jasmine flowers are picked, stored and used when the petals have opened. Teas and flowers are then mixed and the green tea is allowed to take up moisture from the flowers allowing the scent to migrate across to the tea to give the typical flavour and aroma of Jasmine.Jasmine tea is very popular with those who are just beginning to appreciate fine tea. Each Needle Snail is shaped by hand using just the bud.
