$11.15

Sold by the ounce.

Silver Needle White Tea consists of only singular tender buds picked in Spring before they open. The reason for the name, Silver Needle, is quite apparent with one glance at the buds. The prominence of the delicate white hairs on the buds is quite striking.

Tea brewed from these buds have a light yellow color with a lightly sweet and fresh scent. Its taste is clean and lightly sweet with a soft fresh aftertaste.

The water used to steep this tea should be about 160-180°F or 70-80°C. Use about 2 tablespoons (3 grams) of tea leaves for about every 5 ounces (150 milliliters) of water. A steeping time of about 3-5 minutes with more or less time recommended depending on desired concentration. As a rough guide, the higher the temperature of the water or the greater the amount of leaves used, the quicker the steeping time should be. The use of a ceramic or glass cup is recommended to enjoy the look of the leaves.
