Sri Lanka Silver Needles
“Watch out, China”
This style of tea originated in China, and Sri Lanka is a newcomer in producing it. But this particular tea competes with the best of them. Made of long, individual buds, it has beautifully delicate notes of fresh corn silk and white mushroom, and a surprising ability to linger and sweeten the palate. It’s both a tribute to the Chinese tradition and a serious challenge to the established masters.
