Fine twisted young leaf that resembles a chun mee style but interspersed with silvery down-covered buds. The aroma is quietly floral but gives way to a smokiness, reminiscent of gunpowder but not nearly as bold. The cup is light, yet smoky with a semi buttery mouthfeel. In the finish a dry white grape note, and lingering smoke.
Green Tea | Moderate caffeine | Steep at 180° for 3 minutes.
Silver is one of the seven metals of antiquity, alongside gold, copper, tin, lead, iron, and mercury. Used for sculpture, coins, and jewelry since ancient times, it is now used for anything from solar panels to electronics and even water filtration. Though silver is sometimes associated with second best, à la silver medals, in folklore it reigns supreme as the ideal solution for werewolves, vampires, witches, and more. It is from this idea that we get the term “silver bullet,” which refers to the perfect solution for any given problem, for example, quieting your inner tea monster with Silver Sprout.
