From In Pursuit of Tea

The rarest and most spectacular of the white teas is this, Yinzhen Silver Needle. Early in the spring, the individual leaf buds are picked and carefully handcrafted into this noteworthy tea. Infuse in a glass to enjoy the dance of the leaf bud spears, now green. Each bud is covered with white downy hair and the tea is known for its buttery, nutty flavor. Packed with antioxidants and low in caffeine – a very healthy tea. This is our highest grade and was grown near Fuding, in northern Fujian.

Silver Needle is one of my all time favorites. I’ve probably had Silver Needle from at least 50 different companies and I was looking forward to trying Pursuit’s version.
Honestly, from the very appearance I was taken back. It’s a much darker bud than some of the very high quality ones I’ve had before, but I tried to ignore the appearance and taste as if blindfolded. In the end, the visual test proved correct. I’ve had way better.

Probably one of the best teas I’ve ever had! Its good with a lot of tea ( like a heaping tablespoon for 6 oz steeps) and long steeps with low temp (170ish). Tastes like toasted pines needles and chocolate when steeped right!
