This Jasmine Silver Needle is an exquisite, scented white tea from Fuding, in Fujian Province. Handplucked in spring, these large, plump buds are dried naturally in the sun, and then carefully mixed with fresh jasmine blossoms. The tea leaves are left to absorb the heady scent of the fresh flowers, before the blossoms are removed - a process that is repeated with fresh blossoms up to seven times. The result brings together the beautifully clean, crisp character of a top grade Silver Needle, with its sweet notes of honeysuckle, and the delicate, floral aroma of jasmine.
Crisp, refreshing and all too easy to drink, this is a hard one not to love.

MORE ABOUT THIS TEA
This Yin Zhen Jasmine Silver Needle white tea is made from a well-known white tea cultivar, Da Bai or ‘Large White’, grown on a fully organic tea garden at around 800-900m elevation in Fuding, China. Harvested entirely by hand in April 2020, the carefully selected buds are also processed by hand, before being scented with fresh jasmine blossom from Guangxi Province.
We work hard to find, taste and select exceptional teas, first and foremost looking for quality and flavour in the cup. We focus on single-origin, whole leaf teas where the character is a direct reflection of the area in which it is grown, as well as the craft involved in growing, plucking and processing the leaves.
There are an infinite number of teas being produced every year, so our role is to find and bring you some of the best. Our care in curating the range, as well as the quality of the product itself, has earned us both our customers’ trust and multiple Great Taste awards.
Not only does the tea need to taste good, it is also important to us that we know exactly where each tea comes from and who is responsible for harvesting and crafting the leaves we buy.
We work exclusively with trusted farms, co-operatives, partners and suppliers who share our values. We source from 13 growing regions around the world, always paying well above fair-trade prices.
