Our Midnight Jasmine Premium is a superior grade of our Midnight Jasmine. It has a beautiful aroma and a wonderfully subtle and sweet flavour. To infuse the flavours and fragrances of jasmine into the tea plant, the harvested tea leaves are layered with fresh jasmine than left to dry, resulting in a beautiful marriage between the tea leaves and the flowers. The flowers are then picked out by hand and the tea leaves are left with a wonderful aroma, so inspiring and enlightening.

How to steep green tea properly - by Richard Isaac
In our workshops we come across a lot of people who didn’t previously realize that steeping time and water temperature affect the taste of tea drastically. Just a difference of 15 seconds, or a temperature variance of as little as 2 degrees can make the difference between an exquisite cup of tea and an awfully bitter tea experience.
Green tea, White Tea, and Oolong Tea
Using boiling water to steep tea only works well for black teas and herbal ‘teas’. For green, white, and oolong teas, boiling water can burn the tea leaves and make the tea very bitter. Generally there is a range between 75C and 85C for green, white, and oolong teas (see our specific tea product pages for temperature guidelines), but of course most people do not have a thermometer ready to measure water temperature; instead, they will simply wait for the kettle to whistle, then pour water onto the leaves. Again, this is fine for black teas and herbal teas, but there are a few tricks you can use to make sure that your water is closer to the appropriate temperature for your tea.
