I was very disappointed in this particular blend of this tea. I loved my previous jasmine tea from RTC and it still had a beautiful fragrance in August, even though it was past its best before date of Jan 2021. Comparing my 'new' tea with its previous version - I definately prefer the one before. I am blessed with a very good sense of smell, but can only get a hint of the jasmine in the 'new' tea and that is quickly lost and becomes rather dull to smell and to taste. Having decided to settle on RTC , I am now wondering whether to look elsewhere

Beautiful Delicate Flavour

Unlike any white tea I have tasted before. This is a refined and delicate flavour, which I now can't be without! I also love the caddy it comes with.

A refined treat...

I bought this tea on a whim and I am so glad that I did. The tea has an amazing flavour and it is well worth carving some time out to sit and enjoy its delicate yet fulfilling flavours with nothing else to distract from the pleasure of the taste: It is almost a meditation. A pure treat.

This tea is Special...

Having been recommend this by a friend I couldn’t be more delighted…the tea is absolutely divine and I love the ritual of using a loose lead tea. Feels like an extra special treat! x

Silver Tip Jasmine White Tea

I love this tea and have been ordering it for the past few years. Delicate aroma, delicate taste. It's how I start most mornings—a full sensory immersion. Lovely.
