White tea is the least processed type of tea, undergoing little to no processing after being plucked. White teas are hand-picked early in the season and provide a deliciously healthy soft and sweet tea drinking experience.
Silver Needles are among one of China's most famous and most prized teas. Only the first flush top buds are picked from the plant very early in the season, giving special care not to cause any damage or breakage to the bud. They are then dried in the sun.
Silver Needles are a very pure form of tea with little to no oxidation. It produces a lovely cup of very lightly colored tea, with a gorgeous array of sweet and subtle flavors.
We love enjoying this beautiful white tea in the early afternoon.

Imperial Grade Yunnan Yellow
Yellow tea is the rarest of the six classes of tea and only produced in China. It is not commonly found in the North American market.
It is produced in a similar manner to black tea, with sun withering, rolling, oxidation and drying, but the main difference is the sun withering and oxidation stages are much shorter. The result is a lovely tea with a sweet, clean, bright, and floral taste - like a green tea without the grassiness.
