jingsliverneedle.jpgIt always takes me a while to warm up to white teas. The fist sip usually tastes a lot like hot water. But as I attenuate my taste buds I begin to recognize the joy white tea can bring.

Like many tea companies, JING claims to sell only the freshest product. I was truly impressed to see posted on their website, not only a description, but the actual month this tea was picked.

The tea contains no leaves, only buds which look exactly like the name - silver needles. They remind me a bit of the pussy willows I played near as a child, only with an aroma similar to sweet hay.

I steeped one teaspoon of tea for three minutes in six ounces of water. Next time I would use slightly more tea with hope of making the flavor a bit less subtle. The liquor was a pale yellow with a slight green cast. It smelled of roasted vegetables - perhaps zucchini - and had a very clean taste with hints of walnuts. For a white tea, I thought it had a rather full body and an extremely pleasant finish. I enjoyed the tea more as it cooled.

You don’t have to be a big fan of white teas to know this is a great tea. With its extremely low caffeine content, it is a tea that can be enjoyed any time of the day or night.
