From Gorreana

This "Special Edition" Jasmine green tea is one of the finest teas to ever come from our 5th generation factory. Created in honor of Mr. Jose do Canto the founding father of European tea production with his introduction of tea to the region of the Azores, with the recruitment of skilled tea masters from Macau in the 1870’s to teach this ancient tradition and it’s prize production methods.

Jose do Canto had 2 tea plantations in two of the Azores Islands; Sao Miguel and Faial (1870’s-late 1970’s) which were very well known throughout the finest tea houses in Portugal and the UK. In the 1970’s the heirs decided to close down the factory and focus on other business ventures. However, in 2011 D. Maria Jardim-Hintze heiress of Jose do Canto offered the "Do Canto" brand to Hermano Mota of Gorreana to be re-launched as a tribute to the founder of tea in the Azores.

The Azores is the only Euro-zone region to produce tea commercially and once was a major producer but now you can enjoy the flavors of the "Do Canto" tea brand with Gorreana in this amazing full bodied green tea with the amazing aroma and subtle taste of exotic jasmine.

Produced in limited quantities this is considered as one of the rarest jasmine green teas since it is only grown here at Gorreana in the all natural Azores region, hundreds of miles away from industrial pollution in our eco-friendly estate.

Finally getting around to writing about this one. The last of the 3 teas I brought home from the Azores last summer. I had tried it a few times, but I guess never got around to writing about it.

At the basics, it is a green tea from Gorreana Tea Company on San Miguel and added Jasmine.

Brewing is simple, although I might up the steeping time next time I brew it. The green tea base is great, but the Jasmine flavor is so hidden I hardly notice it is there. If I tried it without knowing what it was, I would guess t was just green tea.

So, next time I will up the steep time to see if I can pull out a little more of that Jasmine taste.

Other than that, this is a great tea. Tea from The Azores has a very distinct and specific flavor to it. Probably due to the soil being volcanic remnants, it gives the tea a hard to describe taste. Very different from American or Asian grown tea.

It’s one of those things every tea fan should try. I am a big fan.
