Why There Are Silver Needle White Teas of Different Appearance?
The making of tea is extremely strict, which is restricted by several factors that will influence the appearance of white tea.
It can be seen from the thickness of organic tea buds that the more organic matters are absorbed during the growing, the thicker and stronger the buds will be. This kind of tea buds and leaves is more nutritious. The Organic Silver Needle White Tea can reveal the strict process both for planting and producing. The tea trees are grown in organic tea gardens without using of fertilizer. TeaVivre has visited the organic tea garden, which indeed has high planting standard.
We have compared the appearance of different kinds of Silver Needle White Tea. Though the Silver Needle with smaller buds is less pretty in appearance, the quality of this kind has no difference from larger buds white tea (not refers to large-leaf specie teas). Smaller buds and leaves even have stronger aroma. Therefore even if its flavor differs from larger buds white tea, it doesn’t mean that the smaller buds white tea is of lower quality than larger buds white tea.
Weather Condition’s Influence on White Tea Tree
The influence of weather on white tea trees mainly performs in the changing of temperature. In hotter weather the white tea trees will grow faster. Then the process of buds turning into tea leaves will be shortened. In this occasion tea farmers must pick the tea buds and leaves faster. But inevitably there will be more leaves picked than usual. So after produced, the tea contains more leaves than the teas picked under cool weather condition. Yet its flavor is not much affected.
Better Brew the Newly Produced Silver Needle White Tea
As we know, white tea is made by picking, withering, and roasting. However, different tea maker has different skills of roasting. So, if you happen to have some white tea smells like heavily roasted, you can deal with the tea in the following ways:
1. Put the tea in dry and airy place away from sunshine for one or two weeks. After the heavy roast flavor fades away, you can brew the tea with the recommended brewing guide of TeaVivre.
2. If you want to drink the tea as soon as you get it, you can brew it with water of lower temperature than the recommended temperature, in the mean time shorten the infusion time. In this way you can adjust the tea’s flavor to be more like the normal flavor.
