Description

Description

Jasmine Silver Needle White Tea is renowned for its soft, refreshing taste and the delicate way in which it is prepared. Young, silvery-white tea buds are layered with fresh jasmine blossoms over several nights. This helps the buds absorb the flower’s fragrance and to gives the tea a pure, sweet, and distinctly mellow flavor.

Along with being carefully prepared, Jasmine Silver Needle White Tea is packed with natural ingredients. It’s no wonder Jasmine tea continues to be one of China’s most popular teas and enjoyed by millions of tea drinkers all over the world.

Jasmine Silver Needle Tea leaves in particular are renowned for its soft elegance. This softness combined with the sweet scent of night blossoming jasmine flowers gives the tea brewed from jasmine tea leaves a sense of airiness and a satisfyingly dry after taste.

Jasmine Silver Needle Tea’s taste and light softness make it the perfect tea for relaxing and taking a break from the rigours of daily life. It’s the ideal tea for enjoying quiet moments on your own, whether it’s while reading a book, sitting in the garden or simply while allowing your mind to rest and recuperate.

BREWING INSTRUCTION

 

THE WATER TEMPERATURE

  • The golden rule about water temperature is never use boiling water on the tea, whatever kind of tea you are making.
  • Green Teas require water at 70°C and black teas require water at 85-90°C.
  • These days you can get kettles which enable you to choose your water temperature.

 

THE AMOUNT OF TEA

  • Custom dictates that 4 grams are sufficient for one cup. But the amount is partly a matter of preference.
  • In the case of Assam tea, which is naturally very robust, you might want to reduce the strength and brew 3 grams instead of 4.

THE BREWING TIME

  • This is a very important step in the art of tea-making. In fact, the brewing time varies depending on the type of tea. An over-brewed black tea will develop a bitter taste whilst an under-brewed white tea will be flat and insipid.
  • Black teas are normally brewed for 2-3 minutes, green teas for 3 – 4 minutes. It is a good idea to check the brewing time before making the tea, because some teas need to be infused for very specific times: for example, Jade Pearl is left to infuse for 7 – 20 minutes, whilst Oolong tea will need 5 – 7 minutes for its bouquet to develop fully.
  • Brewing is normally done with a lid on, so that the tea retains all its aromas.
