Fujian Province, Zhenghe county. Pre Qing Ming buds picked from Zhenghe Da Bai varietal.
Perfectly picked, beautiful buds that have a fresh sea foam green color and scents of light cocoa and honey.
Liquor is light, clear, golden champagne color with the same essences of light cocoa and honey.
Flavor is really perfect Silver Needle,,,honey, subtle cocoa, cream, dried fruit notes,,,,fantastic.
Hummingbirds and Lizards are having so much fun out in my garden this beautiful Spring morning in the desert and this tea is the essence of Spring!!

So delicious and a lighter tea for this warm desert day. Going to brunch later and Silver Needles is always perfect.
Having more today,,,a necessary tea in life!!!

I have this tea all the time but don’t always log it. But today, I brewed up a White Peony next to Silver Needle and the quality of Silver Needle is just the best. It is creamy; equally on the mouthfeel, flavor, and nose. It has a color of creamy champagne. Not a golden color but a creamy color. It has a scent that is vanilla and a tiny tiny tiny touch of ylang ylang. There are subtle flavors woven throughout the vanilla and cream flavor, which today I caught almond which I realize I have been tasting the whole time but failed to notice it properly. It is truly the most exquisite tea to me.
Having a cup this afternoon, always one of my first loves, Silver Needles.

Flavors: Almond, Apricot, Cocoa, Cream, Honey, Vanilla
