  • To make the perfect cup of Silver Needle tea:

    There is (almost) nothing more personal than the perfect cup of tea:

    • Use 1 tablespoon of tea in a 1-person teapot with filter.
    • Add water of approximately 70-80 ° C.
    • Let the tea steep for at least 5 min.
    • Enjoy!

    Do not hesitate to use the tea leaves several times by adding hot water again. After adding hot water, they sink to the bottom and then stand upright. Silver Needle is ideally suited as afternoon and evening tea.


    Tip from Mr & Mrs Tea

    Steep your tea in a cup. Use 1 teaspoon instead of 1 tbsp tea, 250 ml water at 90 ° C and let the tea steep much longer, 10-15 min. Loosely in the cup, the leaves can best release their taste.


    Extra information


    China Silver Needle or Bai Hao Yin Zhen comes from the Fujian province, located in the South-East of China, the motherland of tea.

    This is a very special and precious high quality tea – if not the best. The tea is only produced once a year, in early spring, and only the fine, tender and delicate buds of the tea bush are used to make this tea. The buds are silver-colored, needle-shaped and are completely covered with downy white fibers, giving them a silver appearance.

    When the new, fresh needles are picked, they will be rolled tenderly and withered for a first time (for about 25-30 hours). Afterwards they will be dried, assorted and then the drying process will be finished so that the tea can be packed. Each branch or twig has only one needle to be picked and so these fine buds are very precious, as they are tender and sensitive, this tea is basically hand made. They say only women can make this tea, because their hands are smaller and more sensitive.

    Wat mij betreft de Topper! Een hele zachte subtiele smaak heeft deze thee. Absoluut mijn favoriet!

    Super, deze thee! Pure smaak, krachtig maar niet té sterk! Leuk ook dat je de blaadjes zo in je kopje kunt doen. Nooit meer gedoe meer met thee-eieren!

    Dit is thee om er echt van te genieten. De pure smaak krijg je als je de thee los in de theepot laat trekken

    Heerlijke, frisse thee. Heel subtiele smaak - echt anders dan anders. Aanrader!

    Voorlopig mijn favoriet van de luxe theesoorten die ik heb geproefd. Ik gebruik voor het eerst geen suiker meer in de thee, omdat je de smaak zo puur mogelijk wil drinken! Favoriet is om het te drinken na een drukke werkdag in de luie zetel of na het schaatsen! Silver Needle is fantastisch om even mee bij te komen... 5 sterren!
