Jing Gu Silver Needles 
White tea, China

Sweet hay, sugarcane, lychee
These plump, soft downy buds are the first flush of 2018, plucked by hand in the Chinese Spring. After a brief wilting period, they are dried with warm wind that is tunneled through the tea. 

This is a refreshing, sweet and nicely rounded white tea with a pale sun-set yellow liquor and notes of hay, sugarcane and lychee fruit. It also works well using the cold brew technique – steeped in cold water in the fridge overnight.

Preparation: Steep for 3 minutes at 85°. Three infusions.
