Jasmine Silver Needles is a fragrant jasmine-scented white tea that harmoniously combines the delicate taste of white tea with the enchanting aroma of jasmine blossoms. Known for being rich in antioxidants and low in caffeine, this tea offers a refreshing and energising experience that can be enjoyed at any time of day.

The beautiful, distinctive leaves of Jasmine Silver Needles are some of the rarest and most prized in the tea world. Silver Needles is a premium white tea made from a special cultivar of the tea plant that produces long, thin, downy leaves. These leaves are hand-picked during the very first days of the season, ensuring that only the youngest and freshest buds are selected. The leaves are then meticulously hand-rolled and slowly dried to preserve their natural sweetness and delicate flavour, resulting in a sublime white tea infusion.

The jasmine scenting process for this tea is done naturally and with great care. Freshly picked jasmine blossoms are scattered over the newly harvested and shaped Silver Needle leaves. This traditional method allows the leaves to gently absorb the floral fragrance of the jasmine blossoms as they dry. The result is an exquisitely balanced tea with a fragrant jasmine bouquet and a slightly sweet, delicate taste that lingers on the palate.

Jasmine Silver Needles offers a truly luxurious tea-drinking experience. The bright, golden infusion is not only visually stunning but also delivers a soothing and aromatic flavour profile. The subtle sweetness and floral notes make this tea a perfect companion for moments of relaxation and reflection. Enjoy it hot to appreciate its full aromatic complexity, or try it iced for a refreshing and elegant summer beverage.

Indulging in a cup of Jasmine Silver Needles is like taking a sensory journey through a fragrant garden. The tea's lightness and complexity make it a versatile choice that pairs beautifully with light pastries, fresh fruits, or delicate desserts. Whether you are a seasoned tea connoisseur or a newcomer to the world of fine teas, Jasmine Silver Needles is sure to captivate your senses and provide a delightful and memorable tea experience.
