- Harvest: Spring 2022 Silver Needle
- Oxidation: Unoxidized
- Production: Hot Air Dried, Jasmine Flowers Layered and Absorbed
- Farming: Traditional farming
A more delicate Silver Needle base lets the signature fragrance and flavor of summer-picked Arabic jasmine bloom its fullest without the competing grassy notes you’ll find in green-based jasmine teas. The result is a milder, sweeter, truer, jasmine-scented tea that retains all its native nutrients and, of course, that intoxicating floral aroma. Composed of buds, this tea will also infuse a more viscous, smoother texture than other jasmine teas. A single sip spreads a delicate perfume across your palate.
Our white tea is from Fuding福鼎 Fujian, China, an excellent environment for growing white tea.
The founder, Mr. Lin Chui Jiao, began to plant and trade white tea in1957. The son, Mr. Lin Xing Biao, is our tea farmer and he inherited the family's traditional white tea planting and processing techniques. This tea farm and factory adheres to sound ecological practices and techniques that produce the highest quality teas.
Lin Xing Biao is highly regarded as a pioneer in the area not just as a farmer, but because he helped many people create a better economic condition through the growing and processing of tea and he owns one of the earliest tea factories producing white tea in China as a non-government factory. The tea factory covers an area of about 16,000 square meters and he has more than 300 employees.
