Description

Widely esteemed for its delicate appearance, elegant sweetness and noble character, Silver Needle tea is comprised of pure, individually plucked tea buds harvested only in the early springtime. Our Silver Needle is unique in that it is sourced from Menghai and Mengku broad leaf varietal ancient tea tree groves in the remote, mountainous Yunnan Province of China. Like old grape vines, ancient tea trees yield complexities not found in other tea cultivars. This tea's sweet, nectar-like flavor and fruity aroma are examples of that varietal expression. Silver Needle is exceedingly rare and beloved by tea connoisseurs.


Tasting Notes

Reserve white tea with a sublime, sweet flavor and rich, savory finish

Everyday Brewing

Water to Leaf Ratio
1 tbsp (4g) per 8 oz of water
Water Temperature
185°F
Steep Time
4-5 minutes

Traditional Brewing

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.

Ingredients

Organic white tea.

Origin

Yunnan

Owner Response: Thanks for your feedback. It's so great to hear from someone who practices gongfu cha. In fact, when we brew with a gaiwan, we like to use water fresh off the boil to get the full aroma experience as well. Cheers!
