Brewing Suggestions
 

We sealed fine Silver Needle white tea from Fujian with generous quantities of premium vanilla beans (no vanilla extract) until the tea was richly scented with vanilla. If you love vanilla and also appreciate the delicate flavor and many claimed health benefits of white tea, you'll truly find our Vanilla Needle to be the best of both worlds.

PREPARATION:

We suggest steeping 3-5 grams of tea per 8 oz. of water at 185°F for approximately 2 minutes. As always, adjust quantity of leaves, time, and temperature according to personal preference.

Like A Decadent Dessert December 2, 2012
Reviewer: Erin Harper from Northern CA United States  
The vanilla flavor sweetens without overpowering the fuzzy white needles. Leaving the leaves to infuse for double the normal time seems to bring out more of the tea flavor, making a little more like caramel. It gets a richer taste without becoming bitter.
