Certified Organic "Yunnan Silver Needles" White Tea * Spring 2017
Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop
We are proud to offer a Certified Organic White Tea from Yunnan. This tea was grown in area of Simao and was harvested in April 2017.
This "Silver Needles" White Tea (白毫银针) is a Yunkang #10 varietal growing at an altitude 1260 meters (4150 feet) near Mulihe Village on Wan Zhang Mountain (just west of Pu'Er City). The processing is typical, using "room temperature" air-drying (晾干). There is very little withering and when brewed the tea leaves have a green/yellow color.
The tea brews a golden yellow tea soup that is thick, full-bodied with a creamy viscous mouth-feel. The tea is sweet like sugarcane with hints of wheatgrass. It is neither astringent nor bitter, and can be brewed 6 to 8 times gong fu style.
Our Yunnan Sourcing Certified Organic teas are certified organic by EcoCert SA and are certified organic to international standards (EcoCert is IFOAM accredited).
