About Jasmine Silver Needle

Loose-leaf tea buds, silvery and covered in fine hairsSilver needle, used for the base of this type of jasmine tea, consists exclusively of tips, with a downy white appearance.
Jasmine Silver Needle is jasmine tea that has been made using silver needle white tea (bai hao yinzhen) as the base. Because silver needle naturally has a mild flavor and a floral scent, this scented tea has a mild flavor and an intense floral fragrance. In contrast to green teas, where the base tea's character is more distinctly evident, the floral qualities of the base tea often tend to blend with the scenting in this style of jasmine tea.

Like the base tea, this style of tea can be deceptively strongly caffeinated, relative to its smooth, mild flavor. Although white teas are widely perceived as being low in caffeine, this is a myth. Silver needle tea, consisting exclusively of tips, is highest in caffeine among white teas.

The dry leaf smells very strongly like wintergreen, almost suggestive of bubblegum. I fo...

Jasmine Silver Needle from Adagio Teas

Style: Jasmine Silver Needle – Region: ?????
May. 13th, 2013

I love Jasmine - but this Silver needle is not quite as good as Ito-En's. Adagio teas I usually get online and they are pricey plus you have to pay for shipping. That said, I love this tea - and its floral whisper-soft grassy green-ness. Best served hot (IMHO) and without sweeteners or embellishments.

Jasmine Silver Needle from ITO EN

Style: Jasmine Silver Needle – Region: Fujian, China
May. 13th, 2013

I love Jasmine-style teas and Ito En's is no exception. Brewed loose-leaf in a diffuser or tea ball is best served hot - not sweetener or lemon required. Grassy, floral and light bodies. Easy to drink. Harder to find outside of NYC and LA.(and of course, Japan).
