As some sun peeks through the grey….
time for Arya Tara White Tea Silver Tips, 3 steeps @ 75 deg. for 2 mins ….
all 3 superb as the needles slowly opened and gently gave up their delicate joys…
So begin your own tea experiments and enter the wonderful world of taste, experience and learning…!
the hairy beauty of silver needles close up
pot warmed, cup warming and a nice small handful into the glass pot…all the better to see you with…
steep #1- 75 deg, 2 mins, the tea opens revealing the green lustre
steep #2- another 2 as the golden brews continue and this regal tea slowly gives up its secrets
steep #3- last for this session in the tea lab, 2 more mins at approx 75-80 deg. and still full of flavour
a final look…how many more steeps would be possible with a little more tea, slightly cooler water or shorter steep times…? may the experiments continue!
