China Silver Needles
The Silver Needles White Tea is from the north of the province of Fujian, where white tea was produced for the first time. At altitudes between 850 and 1.000 m, this exquisite quality is grown and only the budding leaf is plucked. The climate and the soil conditions, the early morning fog and a good amount of sunshine in the afternoon are optimal growth conditions for this unique tea. The bright, slightly rose-colored cup develops a soft, fragrant bouquet and a tender mild taste on the tongue which is reminiscent of apricots.
Preparation: 3 g tea leaves (teaspoon measurement not recommended) per 8oz cup of filtered water, boiled and cooled to 71°6C/167°F. Allow to brew 4 min. until bright gold in color.
