Silver Needle Jasmine

We've been getting high praise for our newly added Silver Needle Jasmine King and deservedly so. The tea is magnificent. Of the 3 grades of white tea, this one is the ultimate - Yin Zhen or Silver Needle and this one is top of the class. The other two are Bai Mu Dan (White Peony) and the lower grade of Show Mei. Jasmine teas are scented, not flavored and the Silver Needle Jasmine is scented with buds over many nights. The result is a full length of leaf infused with the redolent fragrance of jasmine and even the fourth or fifth infusion will result in a wonderful cup with no bitterness, only joy. This is living.
