I really enjoyed my experience with this tea today! I was very careful to follow the instructions provided to me by a professional source and I made a great effort to adhere to ideal steeping and brewing procedures. The overall flavor of the tea was a bit better than when I was more negligent in my steeping and brewing. I was also pleased to discover that Jing provides quality Silver Needle buds. Yes, I found a leaf or two in the bag, but I won’t hold it against them. Haha.

Let’s talk aromas and flavors. Aroma: mostly earthy smells like hay and jasmine, but with some light sweet undertones. Flavor: like water (at first, of course), but the delicate sweetness comes through. The finish is not very strong, and why would it be? Everything about the flavor, body and liquor is light and subtle. In sum, it’s a very pleasant tea. However, I would not turn to this every morning. I need more poignant flavors to wake me up than Yin Zhen can provide. :)

I steep mine at 3 as well- the flavor really pops! But 165? will have to try that. What’s your source?

Harney and Sons Guide to Tea.He actually recommends 175 for this tea, but he also mentions that white teas are generally good in water from 160-190 degrees. I shot for a lower temperature to avoid scorching the tea. Maybe those extra 10 degrees make a big difference in flavor, though. I don’’t know.

Cofftea

Oh ok. I normally do 180. I’ll try lowering the temp.

mermaidcatch

Let me know what you think. If it’s better higher, I’ll raise the temp a bit.

Adhering as much as possible to Jing Tea’s online directions, I began by steeping two teaspoons of this tea in a cup of properly heated water for three minutes. The liquor brewed a bright and pale yellow with a myriad of little tea particles suspended on the surface (I did not use a mesh infusing basket, merely a glass one, but it gives this tea character). This tea smells earthier than other jasmine-infused white teas I have drunk in the past. Perhaps Jing Tea has succeeded in not over-adding jasmine to their tea blend? The flavours shall tell, so I pour a cup of this brew, savouring the sweet strain of jasmine scent that wafts to my nose.

As the tea cools slightly in the cup, I take a moment to clear some clutter from the desk that is my tea table this morning. This tea seems to demand the respect of simplicity and cleanliness. I move to take my first sip, not knowing whether three minutes will have been too much or too little… and the tea is delicious. The sweetness of the jasmine is neither over- or under-whelming. It complements the white tea very well, though I fear two teaspoons might steep to a brew that is a bit strong for some people’s white tea preferences.

Drinking my way through the pot of tea, I find that the tea has fruity notes that provide for a very pleasant and full finish. I enjoyed drinking this tea and feel that it would be an excellent choice for those seeking an afternoon refreshment or a tea for evening relaxation.

Thanks silvermage2000 for sharing! Jasmine is one of my all-time favorite scents and favorite teas, so this was a great fit for me. Sweet, floral, fragrant – this tea is a dream. The white tea was a bit bland, but the jasmine brought it into focus. A fine jasmine tea.

EDIT: I’m dropping the rating. After it cools there is a funny aftertaste…not sure what that’s all the about.

I got this from a buddy to try. So thank you very much. This Is a very good quality silver needle white tea except I do not like jasmine. I tried it anyway and because I love white teas. So if you really like jasmine then this Is for you. So I am not going to rate this because It would not be really fair.

I’m drinking this tea on this long relaxing sunday evening! Its one off those evenings that i’m a bit melancholic and thinking about the past and future… its one off those days that u sometimes have when u worry alot about personal things.

So why not drink this light jasmine tasting tea to calm my mind a bit!

I’ve had this tea before but its been a long time ago, its pale yellow in color more yellow then the normal silver needles. The jasmine taste comes true and holds very well true up to 3 or 4 infusions. The Jasmine is not overwhelming like i a jasmine green pearl tea but its there and is mixing very well to give a light drink hot and cold!

I brewed my first cup and drank it while it cooled down, the second cup was brewed right before taking a bath so it had cooled down to being almost cold when i came out … and it tastes just as wonderfull. I can even say that the most tender and light tasting notes come out a bit better at almost cold temperature!

Overall a very good tea to fill in my white tea needs!

This tea has been my very first experience with Jing Tea and I have brewed the version in the tea bag, for 2 minutes. I drunk it in a small double wall glass cup, to fully enjoy the colour. The aroma had a hint of sweet that I could not identify (fruity), the same for the pleasant after taste of the liquor. The balance between jasmine and tea was absolutely perfect. Very tasty but light at the same time, this tea has been the ideal choice for a relaxing break with hubby after lunch. I regret i didn’t try a second steep as we only have 1 more bag to enjoy!

Managed to grab a cup of Jing’s Jasmine Silver Needle White Tea from a fellow tea drinking friend, really enjoyable the subtle hint of Jasmine. This tea made a refreshing change to a straight silver needle similarly to ‘mermaidcatch’ there were a few leaves in the basket but there was no overpower with the flavours very sweet and subtle.

I really enjoyed this cup tonight. The silver needle is of a nice quality. It is sweet and velvety and seemed to have a few honeydew melon notes. The jasmine was more delicate and did in fact have touches of citrus and vanilla. This is not one that I would reach for everyday, but when you want something soothing or a cup to contemplate, this one is an excellent choice.
