Nepalese Silver Tips is an exquisite needle tea, similar to a Chinese silver needle, with tender silvery, downy buds. This distinctive tea is made using a classic white tea-making process that highlights the uniqueness of Nepal. Its golden liquor has notes of fresh almond, white pepper, and dried peony with hints of elderflower and white peach. It can be enjoyed over many steeps as its fragrant characteristics will continue to develop.
Two teaspoons of tea per 8 ounce cup. Cool boiling water for 2 minutes, then steep tea 3 - 4 minutes.
My favorite white tea. I can drink it all day long. The aroma is perfect. The flavor mixes together with so many different aspects that it creates layers and layers of different complimentary and complex notes. Strongly recommended.
Lay some Nepalese Silver Tips in a glass pot and brew them - after 1-2min you may observe the icicle dance. Take now a sip from time to time - but leave the tips inside the water - it's an exciting adventure to taste all the diffrent sensory specturms of this fantastic wonder of nature!
I received this tea as part of Nepali Tea Trader's Sampler. This tea is remarkable in many ways. For example, I came to nearly the EXACT SAME conclusion on the flavor notes as the website, and I didn't even read the description until sampling the tea for a week. Not every tea has such a distinct profile. Silver Tips also excels as an iced tea. I discovered this on accident after slipping my cup into the fridge on a late morning. It actually seems like the tea gets sweeter as it cools down! Even my friends who aren't tea drinkers appreciated it. On a final note, steeping for more than a minute on the first steep negatively impacted the flavor. 2-3 minutes seemed ideal for the second and third rounds, but the tea grew weak after the third steep.
