Silver Needle Jasmine from Rishi Tea


Silver Needle Jasmine for Rishi teaAt first glance, this tea seemed like it had a bit too much going on for me. I like jasmine, but I’m still a bit on the fence about white tea and, well, I have no idea what silver needle is or tastes like. I’ve also never had Rishi brand tea before so I was a bit dubious. But being the adventurous tea person I am I brewed up a cup. After all, if jasmine is included I know it won’t be horrible.

The first thing I noticed was the quality. The tea leaves were nice and full and had a delicious jasmine scent.

Rishi describes this tea as:

White tea buds harvested from the Fuding Da Bai varietal infused with the fresh flavor and aroma of jasmine flowers according to a totally natural process that uses only freshly picked jasmine flowers and expert tea mixing, sorting and drying techniques. Refreshing, soft and subtle with sweet flavors, smooth white tea body and a lofty floral aroma.

This was a delicious cup of tea. I don’t know if it was the lightness of white tea, or the freshness of the jasmine but this was a very light jasmine tea that went down easy. It also had a delicious jasmine fragrance. Sometimes older jasmine tastes a little sharp, or bitter, but this one never lost it’s light taste even towards the bottom of the cup. Score one for Rishi tea, and I won’t be so hesitant about trying more of their teas in the future!

    I too was pleasantly surprised by this tea! Not being a big fan of white teas in general, I agree that the light jasmine flavor of this tea was excellent.

    I have never tried the Silver Needle tea, but after reading this review, I think I’ll have a go. Don’t know if it goes with the <a href="http://www.zoetwithlove.nl/high-tea/&quot; I serve to my customers though. I'll come back for other reviews for sure :). Cameron
