The early 1920s saw the production in the Fujian province of a new style of white tea. Not to be compared to the traditional Silver Needle it has not only a different appearance, but also manufacture and taste.
The varietal used is the same and requires similar rigourous standards at harvest. The selection of buds and leaves changes according to the four quality grades, and the proportion of buds and leaves determines it at a glance.
In the superior grade we will find perfectly intact one bud and a leaf. During manufacturing, the leaves are withered outside in sunlight, inside in cold air, but also, and here's another big difference, they are kiln-dried to dehydrate the high moisture content of the leaves.
