Jasmine Tea is distinctive for its sweet taste and strong floral aroma. This is the scented tea most consumed in China. It was first introduced in China from Eastern Asia during the Han Dinasty. It was not a popular tea until the Qing Dinasty, when they started importing Jasmine tea to the West. The provinces that produce more Jasmine Tea in China are Hunan, Jiangsu, Jiangxi, Guangdong, Guangxi, and Zhejiang.
