Silver Needle (Bai Ho-WuYiQu Hao) is one of the most loved white teas, made from only whole buds picked at their most tender. Our rare variety from Zhen He is less well known. The downy buds are hand-picked and dried in doors with natural sun light for 10 to 14 days pending on the weather.
How to brew
2 tbsp per cup (250ml); water at temperature 90-110°C; rinse leaves; infuse for 1-2 minutes.
Depending on how strong or mild you like your tea, vary the amount of tea leaves used.
The second infusion can be even better than the first. This tea can be enjoyed up to three infusions.
