Here is one of our prize white teas, a blend consisting only of the tea leaf tips of the first Spring harvest in Fujiang province, China. This is a very particular tea, with specific rules even about harvesting the tea leaves (it must be done on a sunny morning when the sun is high enough to have dried the dew). If you’d like to prepare a cup of this, be ready for an experience sought after even by the most persnickety of tea aficionados. Enjoy this essence of night-flowering jasmine tea with the exquisite purity of white tea buds. White Silver Needle Jasmine is soft in its approach, with a natural sweetness and an enduring floral aura. It embodies the perfect balance between elegant fragrance and a lush finish. Silver Needle Jasmine may be enjoyed either hot or cold-brewed.

Tea infused from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant is the world’s most popular beverage after water. The darker the tea, the more processing it has undergone, and the more processing, the more antioxidants are lost. White teas are made from buds and young leaves, which are steamed or fired, and then dried. The closest thing to fresh tea leaves, white tea retains the highest concentrations of catechin polyphenols, which research shows may help prevent cancer, lower blood cholesterol, and control high blood pressure.
