How To Brew Jasmine Silver Needle

Use 1 heaping teaspoon per 6 oz. water. Heat water until briskly steaming (not boiling). Steep for 2 - 3 minutes. This tea may be infused twice or more.

To brew Jasmine Silver Needle, we recommend using a teapot, tea infuser, or tea filter. These methods of tea preparation allow the tea leaves to fully expand while they steep, resulting in a more flavorful cup of tea.

Jasmine Silver Needle Caffeine Content

Jasmine Silver Needle contains a moderate amount of caffeine. Since it is composed of the first leaves and buds of the tea plant harvested in early spring, it's higher in caffeine than some other white teas.

More About Jasmine Silver Needle White Tea

Jasmine Silver Needle White Tea is a tea of exceptional quality that is highly sought after by tea connoisseurs. It’s produced from silver tip white tea, which is composed of the first downy buds and tips of the tea plant harvested early in the spring. The tea is then lightly scented with jasmine blossoms, giving it a delicate floral flavor. The highest quality jasmine teas are scented by laying a tray of jasmine blossoms underneath a tray of tea leaves overnight, when the jasmine blossoms are at their most fragrant. The blossoms will often be replaced several times over the course of the scenting process. After the tea has been scented, it is dried and packaged.

Jasmine tea is closely associated with the city of Fuzhou in China. Jasmine was introduced to China during the Han dynasty, and was first used to scent tea soon after. The jasmine flower is considered one of the holy flowers in Buddhism, and has religious and cultural significance throughout Asia. Jasmine tea is also closely associated with its medicinal uses, and with a meditative ritual of preparation known as the Gongfu tea ceremony.

Our Jasmine Silver Needle is an exceptional white tea and is one of the most prized teas we carry. It’s made from Bai Hao Silver Needle tea leaves that are lightly scented with fresh jasmine blossoms. It has a light body and a soothing, floral aroma.
