Provenance: Bo Yang Organic Tea Garden, Xiamen Chan Village, Fuding, Fujian Province, Eastern China.
Chinese Silver Needle Tea Grade: Chinese Silver Needle is the highest grade of white tea. It is highly sought after and is the most popular type of Chinese white tea.

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.

Chinese Silver Needle Tea Flavour: The tea makes a bright, light, honey-yellow coloured liquor. It has a subtle, natural and fresh aroma comparable to blooming flowers. The elegant, sweet and mellow taste is delicate and quenching. Silver Needle is ideal for those who want to sit back and relax with an easy to drink tea.
