If you like Silver Needle for its health benefits, but wish for more taste, King Silver is perhaps the choice. There are a few reasons why this pure leaf shoot white tea has better epicurean appeal:
Traditional processing — it takes more time, more mastery
Mastery in maturing — not most people in the tea trade know how to mature a white tea like we do
Special cultivar — we have employed a special cultivar that combines the complexity of a Yunnan Daye and the sweetness of Fuding Dabai to have it grown in Zhenghe, the mecca for old style white tea
Top quality pluck — only top quality first flush from our specially appointed garden, no blending. Not only does that give a uniform, pleasing visual appeal, but also the fantastic taste that is possible only with such care and dedication.
Earthy, herbal nose in overtone of the sweetness of hay and notes of Chinese nan-xing almond. Interplayed with accents of liquorice, matured mandarin orange peel, fresh moss and a slight hint of cacao. Softly smooth body that is slightly sweet and cooled with a lightest accent of mint and mellowed citrus peel. Quenching, sweet and lightly malty aftertaste.
Use boiling water and 25 ~ 30% more leaves for a full taste profile of this rare and matured white tea. As always with Fujian white teas, blanch well before infusion.
A green tea made from the first flush of a Taiwan wulong cultivar grown in the mountains of the Huangshan UNESCO World Heritage Site to the strictest organic standard, Tea Hong’s Organic Spring has a mild and yet flavorful character that changes according to how it is infused and the state of the drinker. This non-demanding fluidity makes this tea a great choice for the Zen sitter and the hard thinker, to whom discovery is a transcendence.Net weight: 40 g (1.8 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
The fine mastery that produces Tea Hong’s Honey Orchid has to be coupled with select first flush harvests from high grown tea bushes in order to deliver the kind of quality only a restricted circle of tea aficionados have known and kept to their secret. The overall production volume for such quality in the whole Phoenix region is only a few thousand kilos after all. Most will go to local elites, and the rest to the few hardcore Phoenix oolong fans that are also tea merchants, like us.Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
For people who like classic style Phoenix but desire something more mellow than Honey Orchid, Orchid Gratus offers a taste that is as full-bodied. It is balanced with as subtle a warm and slightly sweet aroma. Not only is this a great choice for the veteran tea connoisseur who seeks peace in the cup, but is also a bridge between softer oolongs and the more vibrant world of taste in Fenghuang Dancong.Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
White Peony Fuding is a traditional fine quality Bai Mudan from the origin of Fuding. It is a preferred daily tea for its light; sweet, floral and refreshing taste. Others drink it for the health benefits of a fine white tea. Many teashops offer this as the best white tea. We think it is best for the price.Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
