Mo Li Yin Zhen / Jasmine Silver Needle - Fujian
茉莉银针 (Mòlì yín zhēn) Jasmine Silver Needle
Young Chinese tea buds are delicately scented with Jasmine blossoms by gently rolling them together. The long unopened buds are picked in the spring and gently dried, which impart a sweet flavour with low astringency when infused.
Blenders Notes: Jasmine scenting is a time consuming process that involves rolling unopened jasmine buds with dried tea leaves, removing the blossoms and repeating the process until the desired scent is reached. Some jasmine teas are scented over 7 times this way. This tea has a beautiful scent and flavour and can be brewed without bitterness and is lovely steeped over and over.
ingredients: white tea, jasmine blossoms
Formerly: "Earthly Paradise Silver Needle Jasmine"
