Enjoying 2018 Silver Needles, from Korakundah in Southern India. Relayed to me is this was an uncommon production of only 90kgs. The tender first flush silver buds produce a delicate sweet champagne like liquor, with background notes of black tea. Paired with a tea set from my Swiss great grandparents, sold by a company they owned in Luzern, Buchecker & Co. and Kiyomizu-ware glazed teapot.

Sounds fantastic. How did you brew it?

7.5gr/380ml/185f/4min. Western style. On 4th steep, still seems pretty happy :)
