Lingering sweet grass taste, light body, clean, airy fragrance. The Loose Tea Experience: For true tea lovers, nothing compares to the experience of the aroma and flavor of loose leaf tea. Since these leaves aren’t constrained by a pre-measured steeping bag, your palate is your guide to full-flavored enjoyment. And making the perfect cup of tea starts with a quality filtered or spring water. The large silvery buds of Fuijan’s unique Fuding Da Hao varietal tree are prized for their size and flavor; they’re hand-harvested in the first few days of spring, as soon as they appear. We’re proud of this Silver Needle loose leaf tea and we hope you’ll agree.
