Overview: An authentic and traditional Silver Needle made from the highly acclaimed Fuding Da Bai cultivar. Lightly floral with hints of honey and fruit. Refreshing. Truly the quintessential premium white tea. Everything a Silver Needle should be.
Description: This organically grown Silver Needle is our Flagship product, and represents the pinnacle of the artisanal white tea tradition. This special "bud only" tea is carefully handpicked once per year in Fujian Province. It is then traditionally withered and dried to create a superb and authentic product. Historically, premium white tea was reserved for the emperor of China. One taste and you will understand why. Named for its distinct and striking appearance, Fuding Silver Needle produces a light golden tea, slightly floral and sweet, with notes honeysuckle, white grape, melon and a hint of vanilla bean. It displays near perfect balance through a relatively wide range of steeping times and temperatures. The mouthfeel is smooth and quenching, never dry or astringent. It is exceedingly delicate and unequivocally refreshing. The minimal processing perfectly captures the essence of the tea leaf in its purest form, while preserving the powerful health promoting antioxidants and catechins that have propelled white tea into the spot light. The unmatched quality, flavor, aroma and mouthfeel have made silver needle one of the most sought after teas in the world. This example is sure to deliver on your expectations.
