Description Health Benefits Ingredients
This hand-crafted artisan white tea is grown on Fu Ding Mountain, in the Fujian Province in Southeast China. The tea buds are picked in the early spring before the Qing Ming Festival in April, and each person is only allowed to pick one pound of Silver Needle tea buds per day.

Once harvested, the tea leaves are spread out over a flat surface, covered with jasmine blossoms, and left undisturbed for 6-8 hours, allowing the tea leaves to become infused with the floral aroma. The following morning, the blossoms are removed, and replaced with fresh ones.

This process is repeated over a span of four days, with the tea and the last batch of jasmine blossoms being toasted on the final day.

Steeping Instructions
  • For Hot Tea: Use 8 oz water for every 1 1/2 Tbsp of tea. Steep for 20 - 40 sec for the first 5 infusions. After 5th steeping, steep for at least 1 min.

    For Iced Tea: Use 4 oz water, steep 2 -3 minutes, remove leaves, and pour over 8 oz. container of ice.

New favorite December 7, 2015
Reviewer: Marie Cancellieri from New Hartford, CT United States  
This tea is so delicately flavored. I drink it as is or mix silver needle if I don't want such a strong jasmine flavor. Wonderful!
