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.
In the realm of green tea, if those from India are too rough and astringent, or Japanese ones too seaweedy, maybe Chinese is the way to go. Tea Hong's Silver Curls is a great value selection to start experiencing the category with. It has the characteristics of the archetypical Chinese green tea — soft, fragrant, slightly sweet and refreshing. In some teashops, the same quality can be labelled as Biluochun or some other expensive names.

A very special tea bush — Camellia sinensis cultivar Shidaye — makes this unique looking tea. Each and every tediously selected pluck is carefully flattened between meshes during the slow baking process. We select only the best of these top grades for the fresh, cooling and cleansing sensations that complete this tea's purpose in addition to being wonderful to look at.
No this is not the beer but 100% pure oolong. Wuyi classic oolongs in general distinguish themselves from other oolongs with a stout, rather immediate and powerful impact. Tea Hong’s Cream Stout differs from the crowd with a soft creamy finish and a light tone of cream that is developed naturally in the tealeaves themselves. This is possible only with a new pedigree of tea cultivar, Aijiao Wulong. We believe you’ll like the oolong much better than the beer, as we do.
Unlike other green teas that are prized for plucking early in Spring, leaves of Da Guazi need to be quite open in order to make a fine Luan Guapian. This gives the proper biochemistry that yields enough pectin for the tea's signature velvety texture and slightly sweet character. This unique nature is possible only with a special local cultivar — Da Guazi — Big Melon Seed, hence the funny name. If Longjing is too savoury and Taiping Houkui is too "green" for you, Lu'an Guapian is a great alternative of high quality with a different, yet pleasant and lively character.Net weight: 50 g (1.8 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
