Jasmine Silver Tip Tea
This Jasmine Silver Tip Tea is simply the most delicate and delicious jasmine tea available anywhere. Rare Tea supplies this tea to many Michelin starred chefs and sommeliers across the UK.
Rare Tea’s jasmine silver tips comprises only the most tender spring leaf-buds which have been carefully mixed by hand with fresh jasmine flowers.
After the silver tips have been plucked from a tea garden high in the Fujian mountains they are taken to a jasmine farm.
They are crafted by night when the flowers give off their heady perfume. At an exact temperature and humidity the tender silver tips absorb the jasmine’s scent. The tea is then dried and the jasmine flowers removed. This process is repeated six times, over six consecutive nights to add a unique depth of flavour.
Although the scenting is deep the silver tips retain their delicate sweetness. The jasmine aroma is all in the ‘nose’ leaving the flavour both subtle and soft.
No flavourings or oils are used. This is completely pure tea that has been mingled with flowers to take on their scent and then the flowers are removed
