Silver Needle White Tea
Only the delicate leaf shoots of the tea tree are plucked for this tea.
Our silver needle white tea is from the northern province of Fujian, China where white tea was produced for the first time. Grown at an altitude of up to 3,300 feet our exquisite Silver Needle is picked by only the budding leaf.
The climate, soil and early morning fog followed by plenty of sunshine in the afternoons are optimal growing conditions for this unique tea. The brilliant, slightly rose gold colored cup develops a soft, smooth and fragrant bouquet and a sweet mild taste on the palate is reminiscent of apricots.
