From Ito En

Origin: Fujian Province, China
Chinese Name: Bai Hao Yin Zhen
Sample the pure elegance of nature. Harvested two days of the year traditionally, handpicked needle-shaped silvery buds are dried naturally, creating a very pale, unprocessed leaf. Its taste is delicate yet pronounced, with a long balanced sweetness. This is an exquisite tea to appreciate by itself.

This tea has been sitting around in my collection for awhile now in it’s airtight bag from Ito En. I decided to open some of it up this morning and try it out. The leaves are beautiful, consistent, and very floral. They brew up a nice light yellow liquor that is mildly sweet and interestingly, less floral than I had expected. The other silver needle I have on hand, Octavia, is definitely more floral/earthy than this. No complaints here…
