Silver Needle (or Bai Hao Yin Zhen) is one of the most revered of Chinese teas, produced in the Fuding and Zhenhe districts of its Fujian province. Gathered only for a few days in early spring, the dedication to perfection is evident in the pale, ivory colored liquor. The lingering fragrance of our Silver Needle is delicately honeysuckle floral, with a warmed sugar sweetness and a subtle hint of white grapes. Silver Needle feels refreshing, soft and airy on the palate. This is a high grade Bai Hao version of this exquisite tea, perfect to enjoy in multiple infusions. Steep at 180°F for 3-5 minutes

      Lovely!! Don't know which I like better - jasmine silver needle or this one. Both are heavenly. I am a huge fan of white teas. Lite and refreshing. A definite re-order!

      Delicate flavor, very easy to sip. Can get many steeps without much loss of flavor.

      Everything about this tea is delicate and subtle - from the floral notes to the sweet notes, and most interestingly, the grape notes. 🍇

      This is an elegant, simple tea. The flavor is light, but so delicious. As far as white teas goes, it is one of the best. I drank it in the summer, so the second brew I poured over ice for a lovely ice tea. I added 1/2 teaspoon of stevia sweetener both times, and enjoyed it greatly.

      Usually not a huge white tea person, but I dug how sweet it was. May try again iced.

      This tea is light and refreshing. I prefer heavier teas. If you like white teas or lightweight teas then I would recommend trying it.
