From Adagio Teas


White tea from China. Silver Needle is among the most revered of Chinese teas, produced in the Fuding and Zhenhe districts of its Fujian province. Gathered only in the few days of early spring, the preparation of this tea is governed by strict requirements to ensure a premium product. This dedication to perfection is evident in the cup, which is sweet and delicate with a clean, airy fragrance. Our ‘Sublime Needle’ is a Special Grade (Bai Hao) version of this exquisite tea.

Made iced tea with this last night. Very light and refreshing with the slightest of floral hints, as you’d expect.

Nice light tea. Probably will steep with more leaves next time, first batch may have been a little on the weak side.

Perfect tea to just power through the day with – doesn’t distract you with scent. Pure and refreshing.

Very delicate and slightly sweet. Next time I’ll use more leaves, but it was good.
