I’m not exactly a tea expert, but this is one of my favorite teas. It can turn bitter easily, but is perhaps more forgiving than many white teas as long as the water isn’t too hot. It has a very subtle and delicate taste with a pleasing fragrance.
jasmine silver needle
This white tea with a white downy appearance and jasmine fragrance comes from Fujian province. Silver Needle, the highest quality of white tea, is picked during the spring before the buds open to preserve its tenderness. Exquisite and delicate, Silver Needle has a fresh, floral fragrance and produces a pale yellow brew. Brewing with a Yixing teapot can best attain the aroma of the Silver Needle. This tea has high concentrations of polyphenols (antioxidants that help fight against cancer-causing radicals and heart disease).
