Green Jasmine Tea

I source this favourite green tea from Jiang Xi province in China, where many small farmers contribute the leaves from their plots to be dried locally and then taken to Mr Chung who is an expert scenter. (or ‘scanter’ as he first told me), a profession that is becoming less common as companies turn to jasmine flavour instead.

Mr Chung adds kilos of freshly picked jasmine flowers to the dry green tea leaves. The dry leaves coax open the fresh jasmine, absorbing their delicate aroma and flavour. This process is repeated until the leaves are ready to give you a beautiful, traditionally scented green jasmine tea. Mr Chung is a warm and generous man; on my most recent visit, a banner welcomed me to his new scenting space – I was so touched!

    1. Hi Nathan,
      Thank you for your query in relation to my Green Jasmine & Pear blend. An undertone of natural pear flavours are added to give this tea my fruity twist.

    1. Hi Natalie
      Thank you for your message, and I am delighted to hear how much you enjoy my teas.
      To answer your question, our teas are EU Standards compliant when it comes to minimum residue levels which is the highest standard in the world aside from organic.
      Please don’t hesitate to let me know if I can assist with any further queries, and wishing you many more delicious cuppas of Madame Flavour Tea!

  1. Have you had the lead levels of your tea tested as many teas grown in China have been found to have high lead levels?

    1. Hi Nick,
      Thank you for your wonderful question! Our teas are tested for heavy metals (as well as pesticides) to ensure it is under the legal limits as set by the EU. There is not a legal requirement in Australia in terms of legal limits but we will not accept the tea unless it is EU Standard Compliant. When it comes to minimum residue levels, EU Standards are the highest standard in the world (aside from organic).
      I hope this information answers your questions, and please don’t hesitate to let us know if we can assist further with any queries.

    1. Dear Maria,

      Thank you for taking the time to post your message. To answer your question, Green tea does contain some caffeine.

      To assist, as a guideline tea has less caffeine than coffee. The caffeine level in teas generally corresponds to the colour of the tea. Black tea has the most caffeine (around half to two thirds that of coffee). Green tea, such as my Green, Jasmine & Pear has half to two thirds that of black tea, and white tea has half to two thirds of green tea.

      Generally, if you are trying to limit your caffeine intake, we suggest you stick to Green, White or even better, herbal teas – which have no caffeine content at all.

      All of our Tisane’s are herbal teas and therefore caffeine free, so please feel free to drink up without any concerns for caffeine intake.
