Tasting Notes

Remarkably delicate, with the sweetness of spring long stored over winter.

Delicate buds

Exceptionally pure

China

Fuding, Fujian

Our white silver tip is sourced from a farm high in the Fujian mountains near the village of Fuding.  This is the 'champagne' of white tea regions.  The farm has no electricity and everything is done by hand to exacting traditional methods. Tea may have the same name and come from the same area, but like wine, not all tea is equal.  

DRIED

The taste of spring

Quantity

Use 2g of tea per 150ml of water.
