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.

You're reviewing: Jasmine Silver Needle White Tea (Mo Li Yin Zhen)
* Required Fields
I know nothing about the jasmine flower. It sure seems like there must be two distinct types used in tea, or two different application methods. All I know is all tea bag versions, and most loose versions, I’ve tried have the same icky smell and flavor about them. For years people told me how good jasmine tea tasted. I was convinced they had no taste buds. Then came TeaVivre changing my mind.
All the TeaVivre (and honorable mention to Utopia) jasmines have such a wonderful scent. The flavor always makes me think grapes. They are light and sweet. I am totally amazed how much I like them.
I have to admit, at first, this one made me uncomfortable. White tea, especially silver needle, is so delicately flavored on its own that it seemed wrong to cover it up. Tasting it caused me to forget my concern. The lightness is maintained. It crosses the lips as gentle grapes surrounded by flowers, then caresses the throat with creamy delight. The aftertaste lingers with sweet nectar that slowly fades revealing the silver needle base. Yep, this is good stuff.

I love this tea! This is the best jasmine tea I’ve tried to date. First the smell soothes you, especially if you’ve had a stressful work day. I’ve been reading about the benefits of tea and wanted to try a white tea. My best friend suggested I try this tea and I’m in love. The jasmine is distinct but not overpowering and the white tea is a good choice when I want something light. It has a sweet flavor and I have no need to sweeten the tea. It’s very satisfying after a meal when I’m craving something sweet. It’s not going to replace my sweet tooth for chocolate or cheesecake but when I’m determined to skip my sweets this is a wonderful indulgence. Definitely worth buying and keeping on the favorites shelf :)
I've always told myself "Just stick with Bai Mu Dan, Silver Needle is too light", and only now have I discovered that I'm a complete idiot.
I LOVE this tea. Yes, it is VERY light, but that's whats so great about it. This tea forces you to slow down and think about what you're drinking.
The jasmine scent is nice and all, but that's not what I like about this tea. What makes this tea so good is the subtle, underlying sweetness. Under all that jasmine, if you old the tea in your mouth before swallowing, is a wonderful sweetness that I've not found in any other tea.
But, before buying a whole bag, I'm going to try Teavivre's unscented Silver Needle. Whichever I like more I'll buy this fall.
Ahhh… this is lovely! It seems that I’m quite a fan of Teavivre’s Silver Needle White teas. This Jasmine tea has quite a strong smell when I open the package, but as I sip, it’s nicely floral, fragrant, and sweet.
I accidentally spilled a little of this tea on the shirt I was wearing this morning, and I decided I even liked the smell of this tea as a perfume…kind of strange I know.
Thank you Angel and Teavivre for this sample, this one was a perfect fit for my taste. I will have to explore any other options you might have with Silver Needle White – I’m curious what other treasures I might find. In the meantime I will be enjoying this one….mmmmm….

this is a delicious tea. Im definitely reordering this one. Jasmine works great with the silver needle
Steeped 6 times in my gaiwan and each cup was as beautiful as the last. Plus in the loose tea there are actual jasmine flowers amongst the white tea leaves and it looks so delicate and perfect, very warm and summery.
It started off gentle and refreshing with just a hint of jasmine and within a few cups it changed to become stronger and stronger with the jasmine exploding marvellously on my tongue.
This is an AMAZING jasmine white tea. I love jasmine tea and white tea, however I prefer my white tea straight and jasmine with green or black tea. I got this as a sample though. Its smooth, light and no bitter at all. Steep time and temperature should be read and followed carefully. If you like jasmine white tea- this one is for you!
I have been drinking more of this tea and I must change my previous review of only four stars.
This is one of the most spectacular teas I've tried. It is smooth and harmonious, the jasmine is subtle and balanced -- while not the most complex tea, this tea sings pure notes of calm serenity. Really nice.
Very smooth, floral tea. Jasmine is not excessively strong. White tea is not as dear to me as green, but this version is my favorite of the white teas available.
Although it is not as inherently sweet as the jasmine green teas, it is a very, very nice tea that is quite enjoyable.
This is mild and sweet, a lovely tea. I enjoy the soothing aroma of a quality jasmine tea in the evening, and this one fits the bill. I noticed it is on sale now, making it a great time to pick up some of this delicious tea.
