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

      So subtle and wonderful. Good for several steepings.

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

      Mellow and light tea. I prefer a heavier tea but this is an excellent exemplar of a white tea.
