"Freshly picked, jasmine flowers infuse Organic Silver Needle with their naturally sweet aroma. Jasmine teas are made according to a 900 year old artisan technique using only real jasmine flowers, high quality tea and traditional skill. No flavors or perfumes are used to make our naturally aromatic jasmine teas. The rich flavored infusion fills a room with the distinct aroma of fresh jasmine. Dynasty Grade 1, Organic Silver Needle consists of only the young, silvery down-covered buds harvested in early spring. Silver Needle, known as Bai Hao or Yin Zhen, is the most sought after white tea and only harvested for a few days each year in the northern districts of Fujian, China. The white tea bushes of Northern Fujian were domesticated from wild tea trees and exhibit silvery down-covered leaves that have been prized for their medicinal properties for more than 1000 years. Benefits of drinking white tea include the Immune system, Skeletal system, and the prevention of Cancer. Chinese white teas are known for their cooling (Yin) properties and are considered detoxifying and refreshing. White tea, in comparison to other tea, has the highest concentration of the anti-oxidant group known as “catechins”. White tea has less caffeine and a milder, less grassy flavor than most green teas. White teas are China’s rare tea treasures. "
