2020 shanlixi silver needle
Over some conversations, I eventually ended up funding a experimental lot of silver needle from my favorite mountain in Taiwan. Part of this happened because I'm that person whose always looking for the interesting stuff, but really the main reason was because I was able to help a company with something while offering something unique. So in conversation with Wang Family Tea it appears that this is not something their current customers have shown interest in and the yield is low. Something like 4800 grams of leaf picked and once processed there is 600 grams of leaf that can now be brewed. That's a small amount, but someone like myself can come in and pick it all up in one swoop so they are not sitting on something that from what I can tell should be enjoyed soon- mainly due to that delicate taste, but I also don't see silver needle being the type of tea I'd want to age opposed to the more honey note driven whites.
So that's essentially how this all came about and maybe more things will come together between the two of us as well!
These are prepacked at 20g; HUGE THANKS on that :)
*my price has an additional $1.00 increase (above fees) of in which will be tracked and cycled back into Wang Family Tea for future experimental teas if they allow me to continue doing so\
