Widely popular in China as well as overseas, Silver Jasmine green tea is produced by adding jasmine flower petals to the tea buds during processing, which results in a subtle fragrance and taste of jasmine when this tea is brewed. After drying, the flower petals are removed, which leaves this tea with its unique taste and fragrance. TeaVivre’s Silver Jasmine is made from premium Fuding Da Bai and Da Hao tea trees grown at Mt. Taimu, Fujian. Scented green teas likes this are the most commonly drunk teas in China; with a history stretching back over 700 years, jasmine-scented green tea is easily the most popular scented tea.

The Wenyang Tea Garden is located in Guanlin Town, Fuding City, at an elevation that ranges between 500 and 800 meters. The weather here is warm and humid with abundant rainfall, and the tea plantation itself is almost always surrounded by fog, creating the perfect conditions for tea bushes with a rich array of microminerals and organic nutrients in the leaves. The tea plants growing here are mainly of the Fuding Da Hao and Fuding Da Bai varieties.

Mr. Lin was born in Fuding, Fujian, and has been living in a tea-filled environment all his life. His father, grandfather, and great-grandfather are all tea farmers; when in elementary school, Mr. Lin helped pick the tea when there were not enough workers. This led to his dream of becoming further engaged in the tea business.
He said: “My original idea was to establish a good life for my family by running a tea business. But when I got to that point in 1993, I changed my mind: Fuding is one of the best places for growing tea. So I wanted to create a long-term organic tea business.”
Mr. Lin is now one of the first founders of Chinese white tea, owning almost 2800 acres of high-quality Fuding tea gardens, including the only organic tea garden in Fujian that has passed all the European, American, and Japanese certifications. This organic garden has also become the national agricultural standard.
In 2008, his Silver Needle white tea won the gold medal at the annual CHinese White Tea festival in Beijing.
This jasmine tea is produced in Fuding, a famous tea production area located in the northeast of Fujian Province. Fuding is of the subtropical monsoon climate, characteristic to coastal areas; it experiences an average annual rainfall of about 1661mm, and the average annual temperature is right around 18.5C.
Produced in Guangxi Province, China, the jasmine used to scent this tea has earned nationwide recognition. The most productive region is Hengxian, Guangxi Province, known as “the city of Chinese jasmine” due to its large planting area and high-quality abundant yield. Located in the southeast of Guangxi Province, Hengxian has a total area of 3464 Km².
This Silver Jasmine green tea is made from the leaves of the Fuding Da Hao tea plant, which propagates asexually and takes the form of a small tree. In 1985 it was certified as a national tea plant variety, and can grow up to 2.8m high with a thick trunk. The spring tea of this plant contains 1.8% amino acids and 28.2% tea polyphenol, and is a high-quality base for making white and green teas.
Scented green teas have a history stretching back over a thousand years, to the first innovation of adding spices and flowers to tea during the Song Dynasty around 960 AD.
During the Ming Dynasty in the 1500s, the modern method of producing jasmine-scented tea, where the flowers are added to the tea during process prior to drying, was introduced - but at this time jasmine tea was rare, due to the complexities of the processing.
In the mid-1800s during the Qing Dynasty, production methods were perfected and the number of tea farms rapidly increased, which led to greater volumes and lowered prices. This in turn led to a surge in popularity, which the tea has maintained to this day.
