This white tea has been sitting in my cupboard for way to long now. Time to start drinking from the rare Big White Bud tea. Actually its like silver needles, but bigger! When i say big i mean big, there almost double in size then the other Silver Needles i drank before from other company’s.
I start with one big teaspoon of these tips (big spoon because its a very difficult tea to get the amount right) in 80°c water and i steep it for 2m30sec. The liquor i get from this is a very pale yellowish tea. Actually you can compare this to a good white wine!
Taste wise its comparable to other silver needles but the taste is deeper and stays way longer in the mouth. I find it to be sweeter and more special.
Made a total of 3 brews from the same leafs and each infusion is slightly different, but the quality is very high.
a side note, the picture above is a cake but the leafs where loose in my package could’t find a better picture to show this tea.
