Jasmine Green Tea - A match made in heaven
There are many kinds of jasmine teas in market. Lahaha only collects ours with the best quality and the highest popularity. Our Honeymoon Jasmine Tea and Romance Jasmine Tea are both made from the best natural tea leaves – Pekoe of Fuding and Fuan which are often referred as the “King of Pekoe” or the “Treasure of Pekoe”. The most decorated ancient Chinese tea encyclopedia -- Cha(Tea) Bible indicates that in ancient China, pekoe teas were often stored as a Chinese Herb Medicine to cure hives, fevers and more. The Tea Bible was written by the “Tea Sage” of China -- Lu Yu from 589A.D. till 605A.D.. The Pekoe of Fuding tea has been used for over 1000 years. Back in the days, “Fuding” only grew between high mountain cliffs, so it was hard to export to Europe and Japan. Thus, the British imported tons of Lahaha “Royal Black Tea” (Tanyang Congou or Tanyang Gongfu in Chinese Mandarin) as a British royal families’ tea instead. So the Fuding and Fuan Pekoes were ignored until the Fuan county people successfully cultivated the Fuding Pekoe for the first time in 1796. After years of evolution, they finally started to be exported in 1891, and then made into a period of great prosperity in 1912. Now, Lahaha is introducing Honeymoon (J3008) and Romance (J3018) Jasmine Teas to the American people.
