From Tea Savant

(What they said)

White tea is one of China’s most prized possessions. Silver needles are young white tea sprigs, harvested a few days in the spring. This tea is sweet, light, and aromatic. We have gone to new highs to bring this year’s intoxicating crop to you. Our limited Extra Special Silver Needle Savant should not be missed.

(What I said)

This tea is indeed from the original Bai Hao Yin Zhen tea strand, that was first grown in the Fujian Provence of China. I have sought several trials of this particular tea, but I now am certain I have discovered the best way to brew it! (unless the owner of the plantation sees this, in which case, follow his instructions)

Most people’s notes about this tea are… a bit all over the place. Some said “30 seconds!” others said “7 minutes” But the best way that guarentees an evolving flavor that doesn’t turn bitter is as follows:

2 teaspoons of tea per 6oz. of water (since it’s a bud tea + hairs)
Infuse at 165 degrees F (boil, wait 5 minutes)

I infuse 2X tea and 2x water so time is adjusted!
(temperature is increased as well)

1st infusion: 1:30 minutes. (smooth-sweet flavor with floral aroma)

2nd infusion: 1:45 minutes. (a full-bodied spicy kick appears!)

3rd infusion: 2:15 minutes. (A very clean floral-grassy and spicy merge takes place) flavor dissipates.

4th infusion: 3:00 minutes. (The Finally: The boldest floral flavor ever!)
