It is finally here!

We have waited for a while now for our newest and most exclusive Tea to arrive, and it is finally here! Our White Silver Needle Tea!

plate-of-loose-leaf-baihaoyinzhen-white-tea-silver-needle-from-fujian-china_1024x1024White Silver Needle Tea!

This exceptional tea is one of the rarest and finest teas available in the world.It is only harvested for 2-3 days each spring in China’s Fujian province, and consequently only a very limited supply is available. Silver Needle tea is handpicked from the first unopened leaf buds, and are immediately dried, allowing for a minimal amount of processing. Stunning to look at, the tea needles are frosted with graceful white hairs, and smooth texture. Silver Needles Tea brews to a light golden color, and has a soft fragrant aroma. The taste is truly unique, with a mildly sweet floral finish, that is refreshing and delicate, yet with a pronounced and lingering flavor.
