White tea owes its name to the white, silky fluff that encloses the young tea buds and is a tea that is only two percent fermented. This fermentation takes place naturally during the withering process. The highest quality variety "Yin Zhen" (silver needle) is one of the most sought-after and accordingly most expensive white teas, for which only particularly young and aromatic shoots of the large Weisstee bush are picked. The harvest only takes place on two or three days a year when the climatic conditions are perfect. It must neither rain nor be windy. This would damage the sensitive tea. As soon as the flowers of the jasmine bush are available a few weeks later, they are carefully mixed by hand into the tea to "flavour" it. A few days later, the blossoms are again sorted out by hand in an extremely laborious process and what remains is a wonderfully flowery jasmine scent.
White Silver Needle is in itself a very sought-after tea - and accordingly even rarer from certified organic cultivation. We are fortunate to have long-standing relationships with our partners in China, so that we can offer this rarity at all.
Good to know...
White teas should be brewed at a water temperature of 80-85°C (let the water stand in the kettle for about a minute after boiling).
