Jasmine Silver Needle
Origin: Fujian, China
Flavor Profile: Light and mildly savory notes of hay with a heady, fragrant sweetness of jasmine blossom.
Tea Story: The first time Chistine drank this tea, she was swept away buy the desire to take a bath it! So delightful are the aromas that arise from your tea cup. Floral, slightly sweet, delicate, lightly caffeinated, and sooo soothing. White teas are known to be high in antioxidants, while jasmine is known for its relaxing qualities. Think of this tea as medicine: a delicious, aromatic remedy to all the day’s stresses. If only all medicine could be so lovely!
Samovarian Poetry: Delicate jasmine flowers melt seamlessly into the savoriness of this bai hao.
Food Pairing: Pair this fragrant jasmine bouquet infusion with a sweet flour crepe with orange marmalade and almonds. Or cookies with sandy textures that aren’t too sweet. At the tea lounge we like to drink the Jasmine Silver Needle while snacking on our cherry oat scone. Like with other white teas, you’ll want to remember not to overwhelm the palate with flavors that will overshadow the delicate taste of the golden infusion.
