Free Ground Shipping on all orders of TeaIn the continental US only. Silver Needles Supreme is considered one of the highest quality teas in China. Picked during the Spring to preserve its tenderness, these white downy buds were reserved solely for the Chinese Imperial family for centuries. Exquisite and delicate, Silver Needle has a fresh, sweet fragrance, and makes a tea which is very high in polyphenols (antioxidants that help fight against cancer causing radicals and heart disease). Silver Needle white tea is best brewed at the same temperature as other white teas, with your water at approximately 180 degrees F. Steeping time for your Silver Needle white tea should be between 3-5 minutes to get the full flavor from your tea leaves. As Silver Needle white tea is made solely from the buds (top shoots) of the tea plant, the leaves are very delicate, and adding too hot of water, or boiling water, will scorch and damage the leaves as well as damaging the healthy properties of the leaves. If you use too hot of water, the resulting it will be a dark yellow with a bitter astringent taste, with no nutritional benefit.
