Grown in Fujian Province, Silver Tip is a Yin Hao Jasmine style green tea; note the abundance of silver buds and its rich green leaves. Traditionally, the jasmine flower petals used to scent the tea are removed from the finished tea. Jasmine scented teas are often given as gifts or served with meals around the holidays and New Years. The base green tea is naturally sweet and has enough body to match well with the jasmine scent. The scenting was done deftly so the taste is quite natural and smooth.
Ingredients: Camellia, Sinensis, Jasmine scented
Brewing Suggestions: Use 3 grams or a teaspoon of leaf for 8-12 ounces of water. Water temp of 185-195 F is best and steep for 2 minutes and taste. This tea can steep longer if greater flavor is desired; over steeping will bring on some astringency.
