Tea details


Silver needle is a simple beautiful thing: made only from tender young silvery leaf buds, slowly withered in the sun. This is quite full-bodied for a white tea, chosen from a small batch grown on Jing Gu mountain in Yunnan province. The buds are large, plump, succulent and irresistible.
