From LeafSpa Organic Tea

Silver Needle is a white tea which is chiefly produced in Fujian Province in China with only limited or negligible production outside. Amongst white teas, this is the most expensive variety and the most prized as only top buds of each plant are used to produce the tea. After brewing, this tea produces a slightly viscous glittering pale yellow color with evidence of floating white hairs that reflect light. The flavor and fragrance is delicate, light, fresh, and slightly sweet.

Thank you so much yyz for your suggestion on steeping silver needle. I was definitely doing it wrong.

There’s flavor in them there leaves!

Steeping in the gaiwan at a minute a steep using water that started at about 175 degrees, I’m getting a definite nutty, slightly woody flavor with a sweet aftertaste. The second steep was definitely thicker, a very nice mouthfeel. No bitterness, no planty-ness, but not just like a mouthful of snow either. It’s less dewy and nectary, which is what I thought silver needle tasted like.

I now know there’s much more to it.

I heart Steepster.

I’m of the mind that steeping instructions for silver needle (no matter where it’s from) should usually not be trusted. When I see directions of 5 minutes, I go with 2 or less…

I’m really interested to try other silver needles and see whether I have the same success, or whether this one just happens to be a very flavorful silver needle.

I think that should be a Tea Project.

juliebeth

yyz

Yay! I’m glad that this worked for you!
