I love Silver Needle whites, but they can be a temperamental b**ch of a tea, lemme tell ya. One minute off on your steep, and you’re looking at spinach broth. That was certainly the case here on my first attempt. On a second try with a fresh batch of leaves, I lowered the brew time by thirty seconds. The results were an only-slightly vegetal cup with melon and nut notes. It also had a creamy aftertaste that was mostly unexpected. Decent by Yinzhen standards, which – for me – are quite high.
