Jasmine Silver Needle tea is made by single bud silver needle green tea scented with jasmine flower for five times in the end of Summer, when jasmine flower goes to the best of its season.
Also named as Mo Li Yin Zhen, it is one of the highest quality Chinese Jasmine teas. The tea base is made from the early Spring plucking of Silver Needle tea in Fujian. And in Summer, the tea was sent to Guangxi jasmine flower garden for jasmine scenting. The jasmine buds are plucked in the day time. And at night they are mixed with the silver needle tea and also small percent of magnolia flowers, one layer of flowers and one layer of tea. There will be a few layers. The jasmine bud will open during the piling. It gives off the jasmine fragrance, and the tea absorbs it. The next morning, the used jasmine flowers are screened out. Then the silver needle tea will wait for next round of jasmine scenting. This jasmine scenting process is repeated five times!
Some customers wonder that in the jasmine tea there are no jasmine flowers. Actually yes, there is no jasmine flowers in the finished product. Because the jasmine flower used for scenting are screen out after the processing. (They are vast amount of fresh wet flowers, thus cannot be kept with tea). Sometimes very small amount of dry jasmine flower will be added in the tea later just for the sake of good looking.
The jasmine fragrance with the silver needle tea is a perfect combination. It produces the charming flavor and makes the tea so appealing to drink.
