This white tea with a white downy appearance comes from the province of Zhejiang. The Silver Needle, highest quality white tea, is picked during the spring before the buds open to preserve its tenderness. Exquisite and delicate, Silver Needle has a fresh, sweet fragrance and produces a pale yellow brew. Brewing with a Yixing teapot can best show the aroma of Silver Needle. This tea has high concentrations of polyphenols (antioxidants that help fight against cancer-causing radicals and heart disease)

A really fantastic Silver Needle. Sweet with a lovely delicate quality. Fresh tasting with mellow vegetative tones.

VERY Flavorful for a unflavored white. Sweet with hints of pepper, perhaps? Very slippery on the tongue. Lovely aftertaste. I had no idea I would enjoy this one THIS much! YUM!

This was the first white tea that I’d ever tried. It was a bit bitter for my taste, and had a bit of a vegetative aftertaste. I wonder if I didn’t brew it a bit too strong. I didn’t mind it, though, and would probably drink it again given the chance.
