Steep 2.5 mins. – Maximum steep time recommended
If you like jasmine scented teas, you will definitely recognize the thoroughbred quality of this concoction. The jasmine flowers have been delicately picked and blended expertly with the green leaf/silver bud mix. The tea leaves themselves are also of decent quality, with a light but classic sencha flavor that manages to poke through the jasmine. One thing I hate about many jasmine teas is the overwhelming flavor of the flower. This tea is a much better blend than many cheap, prepackaged alternatives (unless you oversteep of course!). I do not measure my water temperatures before brewing (sorry people, but I’ve got better things to do…maybe some day I can attain fully blown tea-nerdvana) but after having several cups of this at varying degrees, I would recommend using a lower water temperature, well below boiling. All in all, a very uplifting cup perfect for afternoon drinking.
Jasmine Silver Hair (Yin Hao Jasmine)
Our Yin Hao is made with fresh, carefully shaped leaves and a high silvery bud content, then traditionally processed with jasmine flower petals to create a rich and smooth scenting. Often described as an intoxicating aroma, this tea will embrace the senses and soothe. Jasmine petals, silver buds and deep green leaf – one of China’s finest traditional teas made in Fujian Province. The green leaves have been scented multiple times to provide the highest taste quality.
