With the aim of imparting Juyan’s knowledge and enthusiasm for tea, this online class are designed to be both educational and practical.
This Silver Needle White Tea class is specially designed for anyone who love White Tea and want to dive deeper to find out more about the delicate tea. Silver Needle White Tea, also known as Bai Hao Yin Zhen, amongst white teas, this is the most expensive variety and the most prized, as only the year’s first new buds (leaf shoots) of the camellia sinensis plant are used to produce the tea.
I have chosen three individual Silver Needle White Teas, plus one aged Silver Needle all produced by Master Ye Fang Yang, who was born in a tea-making family and devoted all his lift to tea. Each tea is from Master Ye’s three different farms where he uses no pesticides or artificial fertilisers and he believes that white tea should be reflect the local terroir and ecosystem on which it is grown and be absolute free of any impurities.
During this class, we will brew and taste side by side to compare the three teas demonstrating the effect of cultivar, difference in terroir, as well as the age of trees. For learning and understanding what an aged white tea would be like, I have contributed one of my personal collection – a seven-year old Silver Needle, which will allow us to compare the effect of resting with teas. You will notice that each Silver Needle tea has its individual character, but all are distinguished by their balance, clarity of taste and long-lasting sweetness.
