A fragrant jasmine scented white tea, Jasmine Silver Needles marries the delicate taste of white tea with the scent of jasmine blossoms. Packed with antioxidants and often low in caffeine, this tea is refreshing and energising.

The beautiful, distinctive leaves of Jasmine Silver Needles are some of the rarest and most distinctive available. Silver needles is a white tea formed from a very special cultivar of tea plant that produces long, thin, downy tea leaves and hand-picked in the very first days of the season, slightly hand-rolled and slowly dried for the sweetest, most fragrant white tea infusion. 

This jasmine white tea is created naturally by scattering pure jasmine blossoms over the freshly picked and shaped needles before drying and then left to absorb the scent naturally. The result is a delicate, fragrant jasmine infusion which is delectable, balanced and slightly sweet.
