Dry leaf gives a fresh, sharp and intense jasmine fragrance which is like a pure and natural bouquet. The jasmine tea of poor quality is lacking in freshness, flowery fragrance, while giving moldiness smell of jasmine flower. It is due to the improper processing whereby the temperature during scenting is not controlled and scented flower is not separated at once. When brewed, the liquor gives the same aromatic profile. For good quality flowers, the jasmine fragrance will last up to 3 brewings while its pleasing scent still remains in the brewed leaf. As for poorer quality flowers, the jasmine fragrance is hardly retained after the first brewing.
