Jasmine Silver Needle Loose Leaf Tea
Soft and fragrant.
This Chinese tea is pretty special. Combining two of our favourite flavours, Jasmine and Silver Needle White Tea. The white tea leaves are picked at dawn on just two days of the year, they are then intertwined with jasmine blossom and left to dry in the sun.
The tea leaves are long silvery single buds with a fresh, jasmine aroma. Our Jasmine Silver Needle tea has a distinctive floral, sweet character with a delicate, smooth texture. Perfect for those moments where you need some “me time”. The tea leaves can be resteeped multiple times.
What are the health benefits of white tea? Famed for numerous health benefits, White tea has a deliciously delicate, sweet, refreshing taste. The least processed of all teas, the hand-picked leaves are barely touched and avoid the twisting, rolling and steaming process that other tea types undergo. Check out our blog post to see the answers to what is white tea and why is it so great?
Fun fact: Jasmine flowers contain both types of reproductive organs yet cannot self-pollinate. Butterflies and bees fret not!
How to make the perfect cup of white tea:
Step 1: Use one teaspoon per cup.
Step 2: Use freshly drawn boiled water that has been cooled to 70-80ºC. (Using boiling water can damage the leaves)
Step 3: Avoid oversteeping, we recommend 90 seconds. Taste it and then decide if you’d like to steep a little longer.
Arghhhh my worst nightmare, you’re out of stock!

Ingredients: Each box contains 37.5g of loose leaf white tea
Storage instructions: Keep away from moisture (until it lands in your cup)! We recommend you store your white tea in an opaque, airtight container. It might look pretty in glass, but the light damages the tea leaves and subsequent taste. Nooooooo!
