«White Hair Silver Needle» was made in Fu’an County (Fujian province) at the beginning of April 2017, from the first spring buds of the variety Da Bai Hao (Large White Hair).
Dry leaf: large hairy top buds of silver-olive hues. The aroma is intensive, herbaceous-floral. The liquor is transparent with light golden hue.
The bouquet of brewed tea is light and airy, herbaceous-floral, with notes of flaxseed, raspberry leaf, linden blossom, mint and lime. The aroma is fresh and gentle, floral. The taste is refined and multifaceted, oily and sweet, with delicate sourness and refreshing, lingering finish.
Brew tea with hot water (75-80°C) in a porcelain gaiwan or a teapot of porous clay. The proportion is 4-5 g per 100 ml. The time of the first steeping is about 10-12 seconds. After that do short steeps (just for 3-5 seconds), increasing steeping time for each subsequent step, if necessary. You can steep the tea up to 10 times.
«White Hair Silver Needle» is a right choice for ceremonial tea party, lofty conversations or emotional reboot. It fills the space with a subtle, floral scent, giving rise to a sense of purity and renewal.
