Organic Pekoe White Tea
China, silver needle tea aquires its name from the tiny silver hair-like protrutions coming from the leaves. When they are young buds, they have these silver protrutions, and when they are steamed and dried, they turn white.
With a light woody smell, this tea has smooth earthy tones and leaves a wonderful lingering aftertaste.
White tea has more benefits than other teas because they are less processed and also steamed instead of pan fried. This means higher antioxidant levels as well. (via Wing Hop Fung website)
