2 Doves Silver Needle
For the world’s top tea collectors, Fujian’s Fuding County holds a special place as the home of the world’s finest white teas. Each has its own special characteristics resulting from the unique soil conditions, rain, sunlight, tea genus, production method and story. That’s right…story. One of the lesser known of these tales has to do with 2 Doves Silver Needle, a fabulously delicate “buds only” white tea plucked from a Fujian genus known as Fuding Da Hao.
The amazing qualities of this tea can’t be disputed. The wiry, silvery buds coated in a light down resemble dove’s wings while the flavor is light, sweet and loaded with nuance. A wonderful tea to add to your collection.
Note: White teas are amazingly healthy and typically have less caffeine and higher anti-oxidant levels than black, green or oolong teas.
Hot tea brewing method
This tea can be used repeatedly - about 3 times. The secret is to use water that has been boiled and then allowed to cool to 80'-90'C. Place 10-15 of the silver tips in your cup let the tea steep for about 3 minutes and then begin enjoying a cup of enchantment - do not remove the leaves from the cup. Once the water level is low - add more water until the flavor of the tea is exhausted.
