White Tea- White Fur Silver Needle is more precious when its aged. This white fur silver needle is picked from 2013 and we have stored in our sand stone teahouse for 2 years and it tastes better and its health benefits more effective now.

White Fur Silver Needle picked at early Spring is always known as the one and the only best White Tea!


A genuine Silver Needle is a white tea, and as a white tea, it is only lightly oxidised . The best productions are from the first flushes, which generally take place between late March to early April just like our Silver needle were picked at early April this year, and only this year's first new buds, i.e. the leaf buds before opening, are plucked. Unlike the plucking of green tea, the ideal time and weather for plucking white tea is a sunny morning when the sun is high enough to have dried any remaining moisture on the buds.


The leaf bud used to make our Silver needle has applied the most traditional way during the picking-- the plucks are laid in shallow baskets to wilt under the sun for an extended period, which is the way to produce the best Silver Needle. To avoid loss due to sudden rain, gusts, or other accidents, our Silver needle plucks were taken indoor to wilt in a chamber with artificial warm air flow. The softened shoots were then piled for the required enzyme oxidation  before they are taken for a low temperature bake-dry.


Tasting and brewing : Use Glass teapot or Gaiwan; Pouring water with around 75 to 80 degrees Celsius or 167 to 176 degrees Fahrenhei, It produces a slightly viscous glittering pale yellow color with evidence of floating white hairs that reflect light. The flavor and fragrance is delicate, light, fresh, and sweet. Steeping should be longer than other white tea, normally about 5 minutes per brew. The standard brewing use 5gm tea leave + 300ml water; and the same amount of leave can be brewed up to 6 times.
