Angel's Comment:

This is definitely a nice sweet jasmine green tea with strong jasmine fragrance, a great choice for jasmine tea fans for everyday drink.

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. In China it is described as being like drinking the flavor of spring itself.

Tea Garden

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.

Tea Farmer
Tea farmer Mr. Lin

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.

History

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.
