After withering and de-enzyming, leaves are covered with a clean cloth. This brief "smothering" process forces out more fragrance from the tea and imparts a slight yellow hue to the leaves. The pan-firing process is of shorter duration than that for green teas.
Jasmine Silver Needle
An extravagant tea; feathery white buds, delicate tea flavor.
#5511E EU Standard
Comprised entirely of buds with silvery white down. Also known as Flowery White Pekoe or Yin Zhen. No question about the high quality of the tea material, yet I have wished for more flavor. However, this batch exhibits a floral note that I have rarely encountered in this tea, and it is truly a delight to have taste matching the tea's appearance.
