Jasmine Silver Needle

Soft Silver Needle white tea buds infused with fresh jasmine blossom
This is a soft, lush jasmine tea, made from young, silvery white tea buds that have been layered with fresh jasmine blossoms over several nights. The fragrance is absorbed by the buds, giving the tea a pure, sweet, distinctive flavour that is mellowed by the white Silver Needle. Full of beneficial antioxidants, jasmine silver needle is a great accompaniment to food.

Just the best

5

/ 5

I've tried lots of Jasmine tea recently but this is without doubt the best. Very subtle and refreshing. And it offers just as much flavour with second and third infusions!

Jasmine Silver Needle

nice tea

Friend made me try this tea. Delicious.

Jasmine Silver Needle

Jasmine flavour very strong

3

/ 5

This is clean tasting and sharp and very refreshing. For my taste, however, the jasmine flavour slightly overwhelms the delicate silver needle tea. The first steep tends to be a bit too 'perfumey' for me, subsequent steeps are more rounded.

Jasmine Silver Needle

Wonderful Taste

This is a wonderful tea with a delicate flavour. The aroma is delightful, I really enjoy it!

Jasmine Silver Needle

The very best

This is the best tea I have ever tasted, and believe me I have tasted a few. It is the tea I give all clients when they come to my design studio, it converts everyone who tastes it. Also amazing if you add some rose petal to the tea.

The Best There Is - A total tea 'convertor'

5

/ 5

This is the tea that converts friends to good loose tea. I have not found anyone who can't appreciate this tea. From a personal point of view Jasmine Silver Needle is one of my favourites but to get it at this quality is quite hard. There is only 1 other online (which I won't mention but they are good too) retailer that provides this product at this quality. Really hard to get it at shops either that isn't dusty or dry. This is great quality Jasmine Silver Needle - don't hesitate - great product. Oh, great company too - very fast, efficient and friendly.

Totally enjoyable

This tea is aromatic, soft yet fully flavoured. So pleasant that I can drink anytime from first thing in the morning to last thing at night. Totally enjoyable experience every time I have a cup.

Jasmine Silver Needle

Very nice but not top quality.

I made a tester order of this tea. Bearing in mind that my tea has always come via my chinese friends, I was in the difficult situation of not being able to order directly from china due to various circumstances. I have to say this tea is nice but nothing more. Compared to the teas I buy for a fraction of the price direct from china, this tea lacks a lot. I don't have that real sensation of flavour and aroma. True top quality chinese tea is mind bendingly delicious. this isn't that kind of tea at all. If I'm honest, it's mediocre quality. I don't have that sensation of pure bliss that comes froma true top quality tea. The other issue I have is that you need to use a lot of this tea to get any flavour or aroma at all. In conclusion, it's ok tea. If you're a real fan of tea and know the difference, this isn't for you.

Jasmine Silver Needle

A refreshing brew to relax to.

5

I drink this tea when i'm at home and want to relax. It has a lighter taste than Jasmine Pearls and is a bit more delicate. This tea goes very well with my piao i tea infuser as it captures the tea and the leaves can be used again. Enjoy.

I love this tea, the mellow white mixed with Jasmine. I find it better as it dries and ages. Its refreshing, its soothing and to my mind, far superior to Jasmine Pearls. But of course thats just my opinion.

I found this tea to have a light gentle flavour. Very nice.

Jasmine Silver Needle

Sweet Jasmine with the depth of Silver Needle

5

/ 5

First the jasmine hits your nose and, as you sip your tea, you taste an intial hit of jasmine followed by the depth of the silver needle. I am new to drinking of this quality but each time I drink this tea I recongise new notes that delight me. A beautiful education.

Jasmine Silver Needle

Perfect Jasmine tea

This is the best I've ever tasted. And the fragrance is wonderful. Soft with honey tones. Highly recommended. Treated with respect (correct water temperature) enables many infusions per serving. highly recommended

An outstanding Jasmine Silver Needle, could not recommended enough. Light, refreshing, fragrant. Excellent.

Jasmine Silver Needle

Flowery delight

Whilst I love my green and oolong teas this is a firm favourite for me. It is an intensely fragrant tea with a soft undertone to it. I very much enjoy it but I have to be in the mood for it.

Jasmine Silver Needle

One of the finest jasmine teas I’ve tasted

"What a beautiful jasmine tea.

The white tea base is a silver needle. The flavor is so soft and has a pleasant sweetness to it. The mouthfeel is soft and supple. There is very little astringency and no bitterness...."

Jasmine Silver Needle

Music in my mouth

"The butter-nut white tea aspect shined – but didn’t outshine – the jasmine contribution. They sang, they danced, they made music in my mouth. This is a sipping tea with subtleties to be found and appreciated."
