Young Silver Needle Tea leaf buds with hint of Jasmine. This tea has the flavors of a classic Silver Needle Tea, enhanced with a hint of night-blooming Jasmine Flowers.
An airy flavor creates a delicate mouthfeel and pleasantly dry finish. This tea has a calming finish.
Jasmine tea production is a two-step process. The tea is harvested and finished in the spring, then carefully stored until the summer, when the jasmine starts to bloom at night. Each evening, the tea is carefully layered with fresh blooms, which will open and give their scent to the tea.
In the morning, the flowers are removed and the process is repeated again that evening. At the end, the tea is re-fired to dry off any flower moisture imparted to the leaf. This can give some jasmine tea a smoky flavor.
