I'm currently drinking a silver needle described only as "yunnan silver needles white tea".
I usually stick with gong fu brewing but I was really tired and decided to try a "lazy" method tonight. Since this tea stands up so well to repeated infusions, I put the leaves in an insulated glass tumbler that functions as a brew-and-go travel infuser (with a filter at the top to keep the leaves in), poured in water which was heated to a lower temp than what I would use for gong fu, and just let the leaves in there to steep indefinitely while I drank it.
This turned out much better than I expected! So much that I might save the gong-fu brewing for greens from now on, and stick with the add leaves, water, and go method for the Yunnan silver needle whites.
