This year's 2017 Spring harvest pre-QingMing tea is traditionally scented and made with Da Bai varietal white tea. Unlike most jasmine on the market, this white tea is not sprayed with artifical oils or aromas. Instead, it is dried together with fresh jasmine blossoms strewn among the buds, allowing the natural aroma of the jasmine to absorb over several days into the tea itself. The final product is not mixed with jasmine flowers or oils but instead has a more potent, balanced and natural aroma than modern style jasmine.
