Jasmine tea, known as 'sanpin-cha' in Okinawa, is popular for its Jasmine fragrance, and has been a mainstay of the islands since its days as the Ryukyu Kingdom hundreds of years ago. Originating with the trade between the Ryukyu Kingdom and China, the tea is an example of the mixture of Chinese and Japanese influence in the islands.

Nakazen's jasmine tea uses only high quality tea leaves grown in China. A semi-fermented tea leaves (20% fermentation) are scented with jasmine petals. Tea is classified into different types depending on the degree of fermentation, e.g., green tea (0%) and oolong tea (50-70%). Nakazen's Jasmine Tea is very lightly fermented like green tea.

STEEPING INFO
