Silver needle infuses a pale, viscous, rich liquor that offers a subtle hint of fresh melon. Relatively low in caffeine, it is a delicate treat at any time of day. Don't be fooled by its gentle profile - the buds of white tea deliver a strong dose of antioxidants unlike any other. A meticulous, labor intensive tea to produce, Silver Needle requires more than 30,000 buds just to make a single pound.
Tasting Notes (6/18/2020):
A bit leafier than last year's harvest. Wet leaves have a sweet milky fragrance. The tea liquor is thick with a darker yellow color. Light sweetness reminescent of dried apricot, with a touch of dry grassiness. Very strong hui gan.
