Silver Needle White Tea

Tasting Notes: Pure, Sweet, Delicate

This superb white tea brews into a pure, delicate infusion that offers a smooth vegetal taste with a sweet, luxurious silkiness. The tea is strikingly different than other white teas with its long, downy buds,  white, soft-green hue, and creamy ivory infusion. Along with its honeyed, alfalfa-like aroma and its exceptionally smooth texture, the sophistication of the tea shines in its subdued nutty, roasted flavor and its sweet, herbaceous qualities.

Fun Facts:

The Fujian province in China is the birthplace of white tea. All true white teas come from a natural variation of the usual tea plant (Camellia sinensis), one which is known for immature leaves which are unusually large, pointy, and fuzzy (or "downy"). White teas are hand-picked when the leaves are young, then the immature leaves (or "buds" as they are more commonly known) are simply withered and dried before they are packaged.
