The leaves of Camellia sinensis are picked. Pre-bloom sambac jasmine is also picked. The two materials are mixed together. The jasmine flower opens and within 3 to 4 hours the tea leaves have absorbed the jasmine scent. The leaves are then subjected to high pressure extraction with supercritical carbon dioxide to produce this otherworldly smelling jasmine tea co2 material.
Botanical Name: Camellia sinensis
This product contains ethanol and water and has a flash point of 21c. This material will not dilute in carrier oil or in diluents such as IPM due to the water content. Therefore this material is solely of use to the perfumer. We advise in perfumery that this material is used at up to about 10% of the composition. If you work with pre-diluted materials at 10% in ethanol then this material should be used neat. For those who prefer to work with pure materials, jasmine sweet tea CO2 should be added last because the mixture will go cloudy at that point – once the ethanol is added to dilute to EdT strength it will go clear again – but leaving it clouded for days on end risks bacterial growth starting so isn’t wise.
Always keep the cap securely fastened on the bottle when not in use. The bottle should have plenty of air space and we provide this material in larger bottles to allow sufficient air space. Store and handle in a well- ventilated place. Keep cool.
