I almost passed over this one again today, because silver needle isn’t exactly exciting…and jasmine isn’t my thing. I’m glad I didn’t, though, because I like this, maybe in spite of myself.
I was expecting the jasmine to be the more powerful flavour, but the white tea actually predominates. There’s a creamy fruitiness right up front (I’m guessing that might be the starfruit…?), and then a gentle fade into fragrant, floral jasmine. It’s so much nicer than I expected it to be (not that I expected it to be horrible, but you know), and significantly more unique. That creaminess!
This would make an excellent tea for a mild spring day. If spring ever gets here this year.
