What is the scenting?Scenting makes use of the good adsorption properties and aroma –release ability of tea leaves and prompts tea leaves to absorb the fragrant smell of jasmine and layer the taste. In this way, the beverage not only has jasmine flavor but also has white tea flavor and the taste has been prompted.
Introduction to the process of scenting
Piecing tea flowers together- piling - -baking- cooling - - binning
Piling is the most important step in scenting. The control of temperature is very significant. If it is too cold, the tea leaves cannot completely absorb the fragrant smell of jasmine; if it is too hot, the tea leaves will be burned.
1 kg Jasmine needs 3.5 kgs Silver Needle fresh material (equal 1 kg dry leaves) and total fresh Jasmine flowers 6kg.This scenting process is repeated with fresh Jasmine flowers a total of 5-6 times, each time need 1kg fresh flower. It takes 6 to 7 hours in each scenting process.
The species in Fuding is Fu Ding Da Hao, “Da hao” for short. It is asexual propagation, belonging to semi-tree form. In 1985 it was certificated as national variety in the number GS13002-1985. Its plant could reach up to 2.8 meters high, and has obvious trunk.
Spring tea, which contains 1.8% of amino acid and 28.2% of tea polyphonels, is the material of high quality for making Silver Needle White Tea and White Peony Tea.
Mr. Lin Xingbiao has been a professional tea farmer for thirty years. Born in a traditional tea family, he was deeply influenced by his family and built his own tea factory in 1966. With the gradual growth of his factory, he is trying to seek the common development between enterprise and tea farmers.He thinks that the most challengeable factor is the weather. If tea leaves suffered from bad weather, the yield would be reduced and the quality would not reach the standard.If tea leaves suffered from cold weather, straws would be used to cover them and protect them from being frosted. This is what Mr. Lin gets from his experience over the years.
Scenery for origin product place
Jasmine favors the warm and wet environment. It will grow best in the semi- shade room with good ventilation. Hengxian belongs to the subtropical monsoon climate, which is characterized by full sunshine, warm climate, abundant rainfall and long frost-free period. The summer lasts a long period while the summer is short. This climatic environment is good for the growth of jasmine.
The original material in the Jasmin Garden
White Tea is the earliest form of Chinese tea. When the Chinese first discovered tea, they soon found out that sun-drying or baking the leaves ensured that the tea could be easily stored and used at a later time. These steps, of course, formed the basis of the withering and drying processes that are still used to this date.
White Tea originally was grown in the area around the city of Fuding, in Fujian province. It later spread to the areas around the cities of Shuiji, then Zhenghe. The first type of White Tea produced was Silver Needle , in the area around Taimu Mountain near Fuding.
Originally Silver Needle was made from the buds of the Xiao Bai form of the tea bush. This form of the tea bush is smaller and slower growing, and so Silver Needle was expensive and rare. However around 1857 farmers around the town of Shuiji began using the DaBai form of the tea bush. This has larger buds, and – more importantly – produces better quality tea, with more white hairs on the buds, more fragrance and a stronger taste. From that time on, White Tea has been made using the DaBai tea bush.

* Required Fields
Got this in a sample. This very good and I will buy more.
Additional notes: Sipping three excellent steeps from the remainder of my sample today. This is such a great tea! So much delicious jasmine in all three steeps... almost tough to taste the white tea itself but it's buttery and sweet. I'm debating whether to order this one now or wait for the next harvest which should be arriving soon. I wish I knew which one would be better! Then again I'd like to compare most of the jasmine and white teas... I might order samples of them soon. Steep #1 // 25 minutes after boiling // 1 1/2 minute steep Steep #2 // 25 min a.b. // 2 1/2 min Steep #3 // 15 min a.b. // 3 min Harvest: March 2014
I brewed it for 3:30 at 85 degrees. Freshly brewed, it is pleasant but unspectacular. Interestingly, when cooled after brewing for about ten minutes, it's much better -- it becomes sweeter and more fragrance. It ends up being a very nice jasmine tea, although I still prefer Teavivre's Superfine Downy Jasmine Pearls.
I NEEDED to try this one - I love a good jasmine tea. I don't think I've ever tried jasmine on a Silver Needle base before. The dry leaves are definitely a fragrant jasmine! I used two teaspoons that weren't quite full... I didn't want to drop any of these precious leaves! Steep #1 // 25 min after boiling // 1 1/2 min steep There is no doubt this is delicious jasmine overtaking the senses. I can't really taste the white tea because there is so much jasmine... a shame because I know the white tea would be divine on its own. It's SO GOOD though. The jasmine is the type that somehow reminds me of bubblegum. There seems to be an underlying milkiness to the tea, not quite cream or butter. Steep #2 // 23 min after boiling // 2 1/2 min steep This cup is magic! Almost as much jasmine as the first steep but now more of the flavor of the white tea is combining with the sweet jasmine. There is still too much jasmine to make out what the white tea itself tastes like, but this is such a perfect combination. Steep #3 // 23 min after boiling // 3 min Another delicious cup - one of the best teas I've had in a while! The jasmine is now fading but it's the level of jasmine that I usually find in jasmine teas. This is one of Teavivre's best teas (aren't they all?) I will certainly consider this one with my next order!
My first white jasmine tea and so far, I'm impressed. Silver needles are much more gentle than green teas and the jasmine smell becomes more pronounced. There is little to no astringency. It is a tea I can drink everyday and will be included in my next Teavivre purchase.
This is an absolutely astonishing Jasmine Silver Needle White Tea! It is full strength in jasmine with the sweetness of both jasmine and silver needle leaf buds. In addition to its taste, award-winning points go towards being able to steep 4 times WITHOUT astringency/bitterness. Amount used: 5g (or 1.5 tsp) per 500mL (or ~16oz). 1st cup: 80C for 3min (Strongest jasmine) 2nd cup: 75-80C for 3min 3rd cup: 75C for 4min (light and delicate in jasmine) 4th cup: 70C for 5min (very light) Notice the decreasing temperature and longer steep in subsequent steeps. On one of the first attempts, my partner tried to resteep at 85-90C. The second steep was far too oxidized to enjoy ("metallic", astringent taste). Bitterness can easily mask sweetness from the jasmine or white tea. It seems that the tea is more temperature dependent than steep time. Based on the anecdotes, I would class this tea as medium care brew. Medium care brew. I would definitely recommend this as high quality Jasmine Silver Needle White Tea.
This is such a sweet, angelic tea! Such a divine jasmine flavor that tempts your tongue to keep searching for more and more! I found a new favorite, and it has found a new home with me! Keep this one coming! I LOVE it!
I've been drinking Jasmine tea since I was a little girl. With no hesitation, I can say that Teavivre does Jasmine like no other. Sweet lingering Jasmine flower taste paired with white tea so delicate yet so flavourful! This is a gem of a tea, and I can't seem to get enough of it, a sample was definitely not enough, will have to get my hand on more! Teavivre's Silver Jasmine Green remains my favourite Jasmine tea but this is one is very close behind...
I love jasmine tea! I wasn't sure about this one at first since I usually like the ones with the jasmine flowers in it, but it was practically the same thing. This will definitely be on my order again list. Having the jasmine paired with a white tea as opposed to a green tea is nice since it's a little more forgiving when you steep it and a bit sweeter too.
Note: This review is adapted from a review originally posted on Steepster on May 23rd, 2014. Original post here: http://steepster.com/cvasilevski/posts/245326 -- Angel sent me a few samples of this to try after my past disappointment with the unflavoured silver needle I sampled previously. I decided to do some gaiwan brewing with this, and poured an entire sample packet into my gaiwan. Oh wow, this is jasmine-y. The effect is similar to, but not the same as, the Premium Jasmine Dragon Pearls I’ve tried from Teavivre. The pearls were just a wall of unnuanced jasmine, but this silver needle variety is lighter and slightly sweeter. Nice, thick mouthfeel, too. The liquor is a lovely pale yellow, and the leaves expand beautifully. I probably overleafed this by putting the entire sample in, but it’s not a huge problem. Thanks, Angel!
