Silver Rose


A blend of the highest grade of white tea called “silver needles” with a dash of peppermint, whole rose buds and calendula petals. Traditionally one would never add anything to silver needles white tea. Given its rarity and price, it’s usually enjoyed by itself. However, in this instance we felt that the subtle contribution of rose, mint and calendula filled out the flavour profile making it a delicate and beautiful blend.

1 tsp to 200mL cup

90°C degree water temperature

3 min steep (the same leaf can be used for 2 infusions)

Camellia Sinensis (tea plant), roses, calendula, hibiscus, rosehip, peppermint
(all products are organic)

White tea is produced from the tea plant, camellia sinensis, by simply drying the buds. It is the tea with the least amount of processing and entirely harvested and processed by hand. It takes approx. 10,000 buds to make one kilogram of Silver Needles.

The plucked buds are intact and beautiful. Once hydrated it’s possible to even unfurl them displaying the little plant veins, the leaf serration and protective fur, as if the leaf was only just plucked.
