Savoring some silver needle from Fuding, even if it's late luckily for me I don't have any sleeping issue.
This is such an ethereal tea, somehow it always reminds me of those big white clouds during summer days .. :lol:

Preparing tea is a complicated process, such as tea ceremony, the first pass is to be drained of water, tea known as the wash. After the step of making tea, the leaf curled up. And the first pass can let the leaf spread out, which the flavor of tea brewing will spill out.
