Jasmine Silver Tip - Yin Hao Jasmine

Jasmine flower scented, organic green tea.

The fragrances of jasmine flowers scent our organic lot of Jasmine Silver Tip. 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.   

Lot Notes
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. The finish is quite good. 

Tea Facts
It is made using small leaf varietal. Higher grades are plucked early in the spring and have a high content of silver leaves or unopened buds. The leaf is indirectly or slowly dried to preserve the flavor of the leaf and maintain its natural shape. The leaves are then kept cool until the jasmine flowers blossom later in the summer.  The timing of the jasmine harvest is critical to get just the right scent and sweetness.  

Tasting Notes
The taste is sweet and smooth.The jasmine scent is natural, sweet and not too strong, making the tea soothing and pleasingly balanced. Good for everyday use and always a relaxing cup.  

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.

    This is the first good Yin Hao Jasmine tea I have had in years after having switched to organic version. I was beginning to think I'd never have my favorite tea again.

    Yin Hao Jasmine

    Posted by Unknown on 18th Aug 2016

    I've been drinking Yin Hao Jasmine tea for 25 years and it remains my favorite. I first purchased it at two different San Francisco tea shops (now both closed), then online, then at Peet's. Peet's now sells Mighty Leaf, (not the same), and I'm only drinking organic tea these days--so I found Silk Road Teas. Just to say--I've tasted many versions over many years, and this is my second 1/2 lb bag from SRT. It smells fresh and sweet in the bag, the color brewed is lighter--more yellow than gold--and for the amount I usually used, it is much weaker. I've thought of buying some plain jasmine tea and mixing it in. For now I'll just keep adding more per cup. I gave a third star for being organic, but it really isn't as good as any of the others I used to drink. I don't know if it is the organic process, or climate/seasonal issues, but it's not as flavorful, or fragrant once brewed, as what I'm used to.
