Debunix: offering Hunan Silver Needles Yellow Tea (free!)

by debunix » Apr 17th 10 10:35 pm

According to the label at the tea shop, this is a rare tea, and indeed, I could barely find mention of it in any of my tea resources, books or online. I found it strongly astringent even at low infusion temps and low leaf-to-water ratios. it is a very distinctive tea, but not right for me. If you'd like to save it from being fed to my worms please let me know.

It was part of a tasting I've linked to before--includes some photos of the leaves and liquors, here on my web site:
