Chinese Silver Needle (Ying Zhen) White Tea

In Stock From £12.50

Our high grade Chinese Silver Needle (also known as Ying Zhen) is produced by the imperial plucking method. This method refers to plucking on just 8 days of early spring, when the first buds become fully mature and begin to open.

The needles are coated in a silvery white down and look as beautifully delicate as they taste.

White tea is extremely high in natural antioxidants, which can help improve your health whilst you savour the sweet, peach like liquor.

PREPARATION

Place 3g (2tsp) of tea per person in a pot or cup infuser. Using boiling water to steep white tea can damage the leaves, so instead use water that is around 75°c (boiling water that has been allowed to cool for 3 minutes). Brew for 2 - 5 minutes according to taste. The same leaves can be re-used for up to 3 infusions.
