Tea flavored with flowers has its own history which has "deep roots" as they say in China, and it would be wrong to think that flavoured tea is just a tricky attempt of unscrupulous manufacturers to give their shoddy products at least some flavour by using chemical essences. This surely happens, but not in Moychay's collection, where we present the best grades of tea flavoured with fresh jasmine flowers.
Flowers of rose and osmanthus, chrysanthemum and jasmine have been used to give their flavour to tea since at least the 17th century. While fashion and tastes were changing over time, Moli Hua Cha (tea flavoured with jasmine flowers) has become an inherent part of the tradition.
Traditionally, jasmine is used to flavour green tea varieties, but nowadays manufacturers are increasingly experimenting with reds.
