Description

A classic, elegant silver needle, only one tender leaf, and a downy bud are meticulously picked from each tender tea bush. This fresh tea is naturally withered, hand-separated and dried to halt the oxidation process. The result is a beautiful, rare tea, with long needles and distinctive silver tips. The pale liquor reveals a delicate aroma, the flavor of sweet grass with a hint of citrus, and finishes with satisfying almond notes. The tea’s mouthfeel is smooth and silky, devoid of astringency.  An exquisite Connoisseur Collection tea.

    Wonderful Tea

    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!

    Floral & Citrus Notes

    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.
