From Yezi

Imagine if a white tea was every bit as perfect as a Rolls-Royce automobile, as unique as a Roger Federer backhand, as delicate as a butterfly’s wings. Imagine all that, and you’d come up with a tea similar to the Silver Needle.

Silver Needle tea has been grown in the Fuding County of Fujian province since the early days of the Ming Dynasty. Our tea comes from local tea farmer Yu Qizhao. The tea is harvested in spring, when the young sprouts possess an intensely fresh flavor. After they are harvested, the tea leaves are set across bamboo trays to dry. This loose-leaf tea has a smooth, delicate, honey-sweet flavor with notes of tangerine. Many Chinese consider Silver Needle to be the personification of sophisticated enjoyment and preserve their reserves of if for special occasions such as the New Year, weddings, and family reunions.

I used two teaspoons, 100ml of hot water, and steep for three minutes. However, the flavor is weak. The tea tastes like melon, but lightly sweet. It gets a little bitter for steeping too long. It is a nice summer tea though. Might have to add more leaves.

Thanks to Raritea for letting me have the rest of her sample! I haven’t tried all that many straight white teas, but I wasn’t too impressed with this one – the flavour was very light, a bit on the hay-y side, and that’s about it. It’s possible that my tasting/smelling abilities are still compromised, but I expected a bit more flavour. Ah well, it’s not as if I needed to fall in love with another category of teas anyhow!
