From Yunnan Sourcing

Spring harvest silver needles white tea from the mountains of Simao was infused with high quality Yunnan grown jasmine flowers. A nice balanced sweet jasmine tea with notes of sugarcane and fruit. Naturally processed from start to finish. Very pleasant to drink!

Spring Harvest Tea (April) and Jasmine Flowers Harvested in May.

My second YS tea from my order. and wow am I impressed. The mellow flavor of this with the floral notes of the Jasmine blend perfectly. Unlike previous jasmines which were either too floral or too bitter, this one is just perfect. There is a background sweetness to this one as well. Wonderful tea. Totally recommend.

UPDATE: Just a friendly note on this one. There was no listing on this tea for Caffeine content, and there are far too many sites out there that still subscribe to the “all white tea is low caffeine” myth. This stuff is totally high caffeine. I drank two cups of this last night and was up all night. My brain would not stop pinging. Just a word of warning. It’s delish, but maybe save it for earlier in the day.

Thanks for the warning. I was thinking of trying some white tea in place of my nightly herbals just for a bit more diversity but I may hold off now.

Well from my further research I have found that white tea cannot as a whole be grouped into a caffeine catagory. Some white teas actually do have lower caffeine levels. Others, like this one however, are sky high. Basically if you want to know how much caffeine is in a tea I would do some independent research. Don’t just trust what the big name sites say. According to my findings, Teavana lied about caffeine levels pretty much the entire time they were open. Adagio is basically the same it seems.

My first white jasmine and as a long time green jasmine drinker, I am impressed with this tea. It has a sweet, mellow jasmine flavor that really shines through thanks to the mild white tea. It’s also more forgiving than green jasmine which can easily become bitter.

Another aesthetically pleasing tea from Yunnan Sourcing, this Jasmine Silver Needles White Tea smells and tastes just like fresh jasmine—and well it should! The dried needles are very lightweight and shimmery pale greenish yellow in color. Upon infusion they become more smooth and green and look a bit like stalagmites and stalactites, as some point up from the bottom of the glass pot, while others float at the top pointing down.

A truly beautiful infusion: visually, gustatorially, and olfactorily!
