White Silver Needle is the rarest & finest of teas...
This white tea comes from the Fujian Province in China.
It is known in China as Baihao Yinzhen or White Down Silver Needle.
The silver comes from the soft white down that covers the tea buds.
The leaves for this rare tea are picked early in the spring while the down is still on the buds.
Next the delicate leaves are carefully steamed and air dried to preserve their unique flavor.
Baihao Yinzhen has been celebrated by Emperors, poets & connoisseurs for its sweet, delicate and refined flavor.
