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.
