Silver Needle (also known as Bai Hao Yin Zhen) is made of the only tea buds picked in early spring. After being meticulously hand picked from the stem, the buds are fanned and dried in the sun before being lightly fired over charcoal at a very low heat, which serves to finish drying the tea while preserving its beautiful silver color. The sweetest of white teas, Silver Needle will coat your mouth with a clean, smooth sweetness. This is a great tea for a hot summer day, even served hot, as it lowers body heat. Since production is limited, this is a rare treat that is not to be missed!
