From Rishi Tea

An exclusive blend of 1st Flush, single bud grades of Fuding Da Hao from Fujian, combined with Mengku Da Yeh and Menghai Da Yeh buds from Yunnan. Our Silver Needle Premium is very unique due to our blend of smooth, umami teas from Fujian and fruity, rich teas from Yunnan. Silver Needle has a smooth nectar like body with a subtle sweet flavor and fruity aroma, and is our most popular white tea. It is best brewed using a generous amount of tealeaves, and by steeping one serving multiple times.

Tasting Notes: Prized for its delicious sweet flavor, fruity aroma and wonderfully invigorating energy, this is our most popular white tea and is a must try for anyone that wants to know the true taste of authentic white tea.

Ingredients: Organic white tea.

This is my tea for the week. I haven’t had a silver needle i didn’t like.
And like in music or cinema i try to find positive in everything i encounter.
It was no challenge to find the positive in this tea. The dry leaves have a an earthy and refreshing nose. And of course when liquid, it is very enjoyable. (subtle yet powerful)
I agree with others, you can steep this stuff hard and it’s still very pleasant. Thanks rishi!
I’m grateful that teas like this are available in stores.

One of the few white teas I can tolerate. They usually taste like hay to me, but this one is nice.

I added a bit more than last time and oversteeped it a minute or two. Has a really nice, full flavor for a Silver Needle.

Make sure the water isn’t too hot, don’t use too many leaves, and steep for only a few minutes. Most delicious tea. One of my favourites, and rishi just got 1st place in the world tea comp with this one.

I am brewing this exact tea while typing this. Cooled the water down till around 75c or about 170F. The leaves are a bit smaller then I am used to with most silver needle. Let it brew for 2 min. Slightly a little dry, but still with that soothing sweet after taste. For the price it is not bad at all. I think the water for the Rishi variety could have been hotter, like 175-180.
