INFORMATION:

It is believed that Jasmine tea was first produced during the great cultural flowering of the Song Dynasty. The Dynasty, which flourished from 960 to 1279, gave rise to a Chinese renaissance that saw the growth of great cities fuelled by advancements in governance and the arts. In the same way that the European Renaissance gave birth to the idea of the Renaissance man, the ideals of the Song Dynasty gave rise to the Universal man. The Universal man personified the cultural blossoming of the time and combined the qualities of scholar, painter, poet, statesman, writer, calligrapher, and philosopher. Along the way, one such man, perhaps contemplating life under a sweetly smelling Jasmine tree, hit upon the idea of scenting freshly made tea with the delicate blossoms.

Hundreds of years later, Allegria Jasmine was created as a tribute to the great cultural awakening of the Song Dynasty and the original producers of Jasmine tea. Artfully hand-tied inside a casing of freshly produced white tips, each pod opens to reveal fresh Jasmine blossoms. The casing itself serves to represent the potential of the Chinese people while the blossoms represent the cultural power unlocked during the Dynasty.

The cup produced as the pod unfurls is nothing short of remarkable. Intensely delicate, the infusion fills the mouth with a bright jasmine character layered over pale grassy notes tending a hint of sweet light honey. A wonderful sipping tea, awaken your sense with a cup of China's finest.


HOT BREWING METHOD:
Place 1 blooming tea ball into a 3-4 cup glass teapot and add freshly boiled water. Allow the tea to brew for at least 5 minutes. Initially the tea ball will float but as it loses the trapped air during the steeping process it will sink if you have used boiling water. Once the tea ball has opened to its full potential the tea can be consumed.
