No. 83, Yunnan Silver Needles 云南银针

Large and well-formed young white tea buds from Simao, Yunnan Province of China

Tasting notes:

Mildly sweet and ripe melons coupled with a fresh and inviting aroma of forest mist. This young white tea brews a very clear liquor leaning towards a light silver-grey hue.
