An exclusive blend of 1st Flush, single bud grades of Fuding Da Hao from Fujian, combined with Mengku Da Yeh and Menghai Da Yeh buds from Yunnan. Our Silver Needle Premium is very unique due to our blend of smooth, umami teas from Fujian and fruity, rich teas from Yunnan. Silver Needle has a smooth nectar like body with a subtle sweet flavor and fruity aroma, and is our most popular white tea. It is best brewed using a generous amount of tealeaves, and by steeping one serving multiple times.
Tasting Notes: Reserve white tea with a sublime, sweet flavor and rich, savory finish
Ingredients: Organic white tea.
This tea originates in China.
Water Temperature: 185°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 4-5 minutes
We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

This could be one of the best "pure teas" that you will find anywhere. Tea blends can create uniqueness and variety but if you are interested in the flavor of *just tea* and nothing else, this is it. I've come to appreciate white tea by way of this tea. Most other white teas have disappointed me - but I suppose that's what happens with you start with the best to begin with.
