Savoring the Experience:
Observe the silvery-tipped buds. Inhale the complex sweet-savory aromas. This white tea's exquisite buds set the tone to be appreciated with several senses and hint at the exceptionally nuanced experience yet to come.
This tea is best prepared with a generous amount of leaf and may be brewed multiple times. It has its own pure, subtle sweetness and is deliciously served without any sweeteners. Silver Needle is an approachable tea, simple to brew and enjoy.

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.
