Sanpincha - Okinawan Jasmine Tea


Jasmine tea, known as 'sanpin-cha' in Okinawa, is popular for its Jasmine fragrance and has been a mainstay of the islands since its days as the Ryukyu Kingdom hundreds of years ago. Originating with the trade between the Ryukyu Kingdom and China, the tea is an example of the mixture of Chinese and Japanese influence in the islands.
