Silver Needle Jasmine Tea
 Coming from Fujian Province, China, our silver needle jasmine tea is a mixture of delicately scented early spring Yin- Zhen (silver needle) tea and fresh jasmine flowers. Our Yin-zhen tea is made from tea buds fully covered by fine silver “down”. The smooth nature of yin-zhen is then harmoniously combined with the delicate fragrance of fresh jasmine. The infusion has a clear green colour and leaves a refreshing taste in the mouth. A must try for all jasmine tea lovers.
