Jasmine Silver Needle Tea Caddy

茉莉银针白茶

Yunnan is the true home of puerh tea and is also known for rich black teas

Our Jasmine Silver Needle is composed of perfect, downy buds from China's Yunnan province that are freshly picked in spring then simply dried. In summer, the tea is carefully transported to neighbouring Guangxi province and laid with a bed of fresh jasmine flowers for five consecutive nights. This creates a serene infusion that balances the sweet white tea buds with the stunningly fragrant jasmine aroma. Delicate and soothing, this tea is the perfect partner for a moment of calm focus.

    The tea is stunning...the caddy not so much.

    Everything good thing you have heard about this tea is true. It's 5 stars no question. Gorgeous stuff. So good you will think "surely only royalty are allowed this"?

    The caddy though is less than 3 inches wide and less than 5 inches high. So about the size of a tin of beans. As this tea can be bought in 100g bags it's not unreasonable to expect the caddy to hold 100g of tea.

    To sum up...tea 5 stars, caddy 1 star because it's good for a laugh if nothing else.

    From JING Tea:

    Thank you for your review - and we’re very happy to hear you’ve been enjoying the tea!

    We are sorry if the size of the caddy wasn’t clear when you purchased it, it works for 100g for most teas but Jasmine Silver Needle leaves are especially big and fragile and so you won’t get the full 100g in. Do drop me a note on [email protected] and we’ll sort out a refund for the caddy for you.

    Such a soothing cuppa

    Glorious tea, and very calming. I use slightly less than recommended and enjoy it cold too.

    Delicious light drink

    I love this tea and I infuse it first thing after my Symprove probiotic to give my gut a calm start to the day. Silver needle tea in my opinion is a perfect tea at any time especially after a heavy meal.
    I use the tiny glass teapot and find I tsp more than enough for two servings.
