Silver Needle Supreme White Tea

特级银针白茶

The Origin Story
Composed of only spring's most succulent fresh buds (no leaves) not only sets Silver Needle apart in the white tea category, but also makes it one of the most prized teas worldwide; truly one to savour. Picked in early April in Fuding, Fujian Province, China, the tea is slowly and expertly produced using traditional methods to produce a mellow and pristine infusion, with singing notes of melon and cooling cucumber.
China - Fujian

Fujian is home to some of the world's best oolongs, white and black teas

Fuding in Fujian Province, China is the home of orthodox Silver Needle, where it has been cultivated for centuries. There is no better way to describe Fuding than lush; from its warm and humid climate to its crystal clear lakes and serene waterfalls, it is one of the best places in the world for tea production.

    This is a beautiful delicate tea which is just as described with notes of cucumber and melon. I have bought it from you for years and have never found any other make of tea that surpasses your quality. Only downside is the price. Thank you your service is always excellent.
