Very small silver buds and sage green leaves plucked in early Spring in Fujian Province. A delicate flavour of sweet honey, chestnut and vanilla with a clean and refreshing finish.


Harvest: Spring

Origin: Taimu Mountain Fujian, China

Approximate Altitude: 1100m

 

Produced by plucking the bud and two young leaves of the Fuding Da Bai tea cultivar which are allowed to wither in the sun for a few days before being gently baked.

 

This white tea is slightly stronger in flavour and less delicate in comparison to Silver Needle with more floral and nutty notes.

 

 

A WORD ABOUT OUR TEA TASTER BAGS

These taster bags are a great way to sample a tea without buying a larger pack. Each taster bag has enough tea leaves to brew a large family pot or can be split in half if you want to make an individual mug of tea. Do not forget to reinfuse your tea according to our brewing guide recommendations. This means that each taster bag will provide around 4-10 mugs depending on the tea selected.

 

 

Directions:

To brew Western style, infuse about 2g (heaped teaspoon) of leaf per 300ml of 85c water for about 3 minutes. You can reinfuse up to 2 times by adding 60 seconds for every subsequent infusion. We recommend you try brewing Gong Fu style which uses more leaf but creates a tastier brew. 


To brew Gong fu style, infuse about 5g of leaf per 150ml of 85c water for about 5 seconds. You can reinfuse up to 5 times by adding about 5 seconds for every subsequent infusion.


For details on correct brewing check the Tea Brewing Chart and watch the 

Video Guide to Brewing Tea.
