About This Blend

Loose leaf silver needle (bai hao yinzhen) tea is sorted to ensure uniformity with no stems or leaves, and is primarily picked between the middle of March to early April (before the rains). Carefully blended and hand-selected in small batches (2 kg per blending cycle), we balance the nuanced white tea notes with the slow release of tannins - which contribute to the drinkers' understanding of flavor - using the structure of the notes as guideposts. It is important to use fresh, cold water (use reverse osmosis, low mineral water) that has a high oxygen content with white teas - particularly teas of single estate varietal. Best drunk in the morning, when your palate is fresh.

For Silver Leaf

White tea should be steeped for 3 minutes at a temperature of 180°F or 89°C.

White tea is traditionally grown in China and is only harvested for a few days each year before the Spring rain starts. This is when the silver downy hairs appear on the young unopened buds of the tea plant, hand picked for their freshness and delicate nature.

White tea is what we like to call a self-drinker. It should be served plain with no additions, to preserve the delicate palate it presents.

Good Quality

Very good quality tea and tastes good. I, however, expected it to have a stronger taste.

delicious tea

We love the subtle flavor of this tea and it became part of our evening family routine. One caveat is that I wish they had the option to ship the tea without the metal container.
