    This 2017 pre-Qing Ming harvest is made exclusively from tiny fresh buds. These buds are beautifully small and plump. The early delicate picking is very downy and intensely sweet. The aroma is full of savory sweetness, while the brewed tea is creamy and vanilla-heavy with fresh vegetal notes and a touch of citrus. Well balanced, sweet, lingering and impossible to oversteep. This is a lovely example of the elegance of silver needle white tea.


  • 'Instead of reverting to pesticides and fertilizers like larger factory farms, Weng Wenkan grows soybeans and canola around his crops. The insects prefer the beans and leave the tea mostly unharmed. Growing beans alongside tea reduces total yield per acre, but increases biodiversity and provides natural insect management. All of this makes his tea taste better'
