Adams Peak Silver Needle
White teas are very rare and good quality specimens such as this are seldom found outside of China. The little buds that form on the plant are covered with very fine silver hairs that give the young leaves a white appearance. They are carefully picked by hand, sun dried and then packed into airtight containers
The amazing qualities of this tea can’t be disputed. White teas give hardly any colour while the flavor is light, sweet and loaded with nuance. A wonderful tea to add to your collection.
In testing by a cancer institute in Massachusetts this particular tea has been found to be Very High in polyphenols - the anti-oxidents found in tea.
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 10-15silver needles 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. .
