Silver Needles White Tea (aka Bai Hao Yin Zhen) is a very special tea where only the tender shoots (the bud) are picked, lightly wilted, pan-fried briefly at low temperature and then allowed to dry naturally (sometimes with the help of fans). This relatively unadulterated style of processing lends the Silver Needle tea a fruity and sweet taste and aroma that even with a year or two of age will still taste thick, viscous and full in the mouth.
Our first flush of spring Imperial Grade Silver Needle White Tea was picked in the first week of March from the tender buds of Jinggu area of Simao in Yunnan.
We love Silver Needle as a cold brew, or alternatively it is incredibly forgiving brewed hot – it can cope with multiple steepings, and if you happen to forget about it, even brewed hot for 10 minutes, it tastes just fine. This tea has some excellent reviews, which is why we have brought it to you.
