Silver Needle - Bai Hao Yin Zhen Lot #Z
A select picking of plump spring buds, this Bai Hao Yin Zhen is the perfect white tea. Grown and harvested by a tea maker we know, this small lot was offered to us and upon tasting it, we think it captures the essence of the spring harvest. Yin Zhen is one of China’s famous teas, a tea that should be tasted at least once in a tea drinker’s lifetime. Light in color with hues of green and soft yellow, these buds are covered with tiny, downy hairs that give a velvety appearance. The cup color is pale with a delicate yet very evident flavor of fresh apricot or ripe melon. Yin Zhen is a variety of remarkable and ethereal Chinese teas that are made with an exacting skill in processing.
