How to make Chinese Silver Needle Tea
In more depth...
Chinese Silver Needle Tea Origin: Our Silver Needle is grown in the Bo Yang Organic Tea Garden, Xiamen Chan Village, Fuding, Eastern China.
Silver Needle (or Yin Zhen) can only be harvested during a brief period of time in early spring before the buds turn into leaves. These leaves from the Dai-Bai varietal must be picked when it is dry and warm, and then dried in the sun before any significant oxidation can take place. Light and plump, they are covered in downy white hairs and once dried look like needles, hence the name. Traditionally, these rare, exquisite leaves were reserved for the Chinese Imperial Family.
