Description

Origin: Fuding, Fujian, China

Ingredients: Tea buds covered in white hairs

Taste: A subtle, slightly flowery, sweet, lingering taste

Health Benefits: Silver Needle White Tea gives you the greatest health benefits of all White Tea’s. Composed of only unopened, fresh leaf buds, none of the beneficial antioxidants and minerals in this tea have yet had a chance to used by the plant to convert to chlorophyll or other parts of an opened leaf’s structure. As a result TeaVivre’s Silver Needle tea has the highest quantity of beneficial ingredients.
