BREWING GUIDE

Transparent glass with handle or gaiwan is recommended for White Hair Silver Needle tea brewing. By using glass, the dramatic pose changing of this tea leaves in the water can be appreciated through the glass from all angles. The steeping water temperature about 95°c would be best. Use 3g-4g of leaves for 150ml of water. The brewing method is basically same way as brewing other green teas. Brewing time should be longer, due to its untwisted process that tea juice is not easily released.

  1. Using a teaspoon, take an appropriate amount of tea (Generally 3g, depending on personal taste) and put it into the glass.
  2. Pour small amount of hot boiling water into the glass until tea leaves fully covered by water. Let it steep for about 10 sec. to wet the leaves.
  3. And then fill it up with 95°c of hot boiled water by using straight pouring method that makes leaves rolling up and down.
  4. Let it stand for about 2 min to serve.

*Gradually increase steeping time and for subsequent brewing.
