Jasmine Bai Hao Yinzhen / Jasmine Silver Needles is a refreshing and energising white tea with a fine pale gold liquor and a smooth sweet flavour. This top-grade tea is picked using the only the highest quality leaf buds grown at an elevation of 400-500m in the town of Panxizhen, Fuding County, Fujian Province. The tea is manufactured from cultivars of the Fuding Da Bai variety.
The slightly-oxidised tea leaves are processed in the nearby village of Hulin and kept in cold-storage until late summer. In late summer, they are transported by road to Hengxian, Guangxi Province, the home of the Jasmine flower. Here, the leaves are laid underneath a bed of fresh jasmine flowers for up to ten consecutive nights in order to absorb the aroma and flavour of the flowers.
