Aah, decadence. No, we do not mean degenerate moral decay. Sipping this tea is decadence of an entirely different sort — pure, luxurious self-indulgence. Each delicate, young bud is carefully plucked at dawn while still encased in a layer of dew. After plucking, they are left to dry in the sun for just the right length of time before they are ever-so-gently rolled in cloth to form these beautiful silver needles. Then they are dried some more. Because of the extremely delicate conditions under which this tea must be hand-crafted, supply is naturally limited. This is definitely not your every-day tea; so please use sparingly on special occasions. Remember: never use boiling water with white tea. Let the water cool down after it comes to a boil.
