The champagne of our white tea collection, this highly sought-after style of tea is picked before the very first rains of spring in China’s Fujian Province. Crafted purely from the barely opened buds of the tea leaf, the silvery tips create an elegant, needle-like appearance.
Legends tell of the virgins who were sent out to harvest the tea under the full moon – doubtful, perhaps, but it does give a sense of the extraordinary delicacy of the taste. You’ll find our Silver Needle tea distinctly light and mellow, with a hint of the sweetness of a ripe cantaloupe melon.
Perfect for use in our Cold Brew T Bottle
