Description

Jasmine Silver Needle Tea is a high-grade Ying Zhen White Tea scented with the finest Jasmine Flowers. Easily recognisable by its floral aroma and flavour with grassy undertones, it never ceases to impress casual drinkers and connoisseurs alike. The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company prides itself on packing each Loose Tea and Roast Coffee fresh to order, thereby ensuring quality and consistency. 

What is Jasmine Silver Needle Tea?

This infusion uses Ying Zhen as the base, which is considered the best White Tea available. Harvesting takes place during the so-called first flush period (the first picking season of the year) between late March and early April.

It then undergoes the least amount of oxidation over any other Tea - including Green Tea. The result is that it retains the vast majority of its health-beneficial antioxidants. 

Meanwhile, the Jasmine Flowers used are hand-picked in the early afternoons of June, July and August. The specific time is vital as it is when the sun has evaporated any dew left on the then unopened buds.

Workers next store these buds until the evening, at which point they bloom and release their scent. Finally, the flowers are layered over the White Tea to absorb the mesmerising fragrance. 

Caffeine Content

Does Jasmine Silver Needle Tea have caffeine? Yes, although the amount is minimal. The reason is its lack of processing in the factory, which is required to increase the caffeine content - as is the case with Black Tea.

Therefore, an average serving of White Tea will have no more than 15-mg of the stimulant. Those looking to cut down on their intake would do well to learn how to brew Jasmine Silver Needle Tea.

How to Brew Jasmine Silver Needle Tea

  1. Put Silver Needle Jasmine Tea into a Tea Infuser or Filter.

  2. Place the Tea-filled accessory in a mug or cup.

  3. Boil fresh water and allow it to cool to temperatures between 75°C and 80°C.

  4. Infuse for 1 to 3 minutes. Any longer and you risk creating a bitter taste. 

How to Serve: Best served without additions.

Tasting Notes: Imparts floral overtones and grassy undertones. 

Jasmine Silver Needle Tea Benefits
