Show Description

This is a blend of white tea buds from China and sencha from Japan. These types of teas are not often blended given the historical context, and flavor profiles. However we have found them to be wonderful together!

Extra Info:

Silver Needles refer to the buds of the tea plant. The leaves or buds of white tea are not steamed or pan-fired (the process used in green teas) or oxidized and fired (the process used in black tea). The leaves are naturally withered and dried in the sun. Because white tea is the least processed type of tea, you can still see the fibers on the individual buds. If mechanical drying is required it is a baking process at temperatures less than 104 degrees Fahrenheit.

Brewing Instructions:

Bring filtered or spring water to 190°F. Add 1.5 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 4 minutes.

Other Brewing Options:

This white tea is best enjoyed when the leaves are briefly infused with hot water, which is then poured off. The tea is then re-infused for the recommended time. The leaves may be re-infused several times, with each resulting infusion yielding different liquor from the proceeding cup.

Ingredients:

Organic white tea buds. Sencha,

Origin:

China & Japan
