Jasmine "Silver Needle" White Tea
One fine day a monk was making a long pilgrimage from Fujian province to Yunnan to source some of the finest pu-erh. On his way, he stopped in the small town of Hengxian, Guanxi Province, to sip on some of the Silver Needle White Tea he had. A native tea of his hometown in Fujian.
While sipping the tea and enjoying some moments of relaxation before the long trip ahead, he sensed an aroma. The smell was pungent and sweet. He immediately felt peace and tranquility following his tough journey. The scent came from the jasmine flowers, which grew in Hengxian.
The monk scented the remaining tea leaves he had with the local jasmine and treated all the locals to it. From that day on, Jasmine Silver Needle White Tea became a regional favorite.
Guanxi province in China is where this tea originates. The area of Hengxian, Guanxi Province, is known for having the purest, most aromatic jasmine in the country.
Pure Silver Needle White Tea goes through an intricate scenting process using fresh jasmine flowers. To produce 1 kg of Jasmine Silver Needle White Tea, up to 6 kg of fresh jasmine flowers as well as 3.5 kg of high-grade Silver Needle White Tea is used. The entire scenting process takes up to 7 hours of work.
Jasmine Silver Needle White Tea is an exquisite blend of white tea leaves full of soft white fuzz with the scent of delicate jasmine flowers. A smooth, sweet sip of the tea will leave you feeling uplifted and relaxed.
