This award-winning white tea is handpicked and handcrafted during the first week of spring. It's a tricky thing to pick silver needle white tea. There is a short window time in a year when the tea can be plucked. Each tea must be carefully handpicked and the farmer must make sure each bud is consistent in weight and size. It takes five thousand buds to just make one pound of silver needle white tea.

There is a lot of misunderstanding about how to properly store or brew white tea. High-quality white tea should age well. The older the white tea, the sweeter, and more complex it became. You should also be able to boil this type of white tea without making it bitter. It is a very easy tea to brew.

Brew the tea with lower temperature and you will get a sweet refreshing honeydew-like flavor. Brew the tea with higher temperatures, and you will get a complex, ripe melon-like flavor. You must be willing to experiment with brewing white tea. Who knows, you might even get yourself a sudden feeling of euphoria.
