About White Tea

Silver Needle (Bai Ho-WuYiQu Hao) is one of the most loved white teas, made from only whole buds picked at their most tender.

Our rare variety from Zhen He is less well known. The downy buds are hand-picked and dried in doors with natural sun light for 10 to 14 days pending on the weather.

This special tea is sourced from 800-1200 meter mountains in Zhen He, Fujian province. The best leaves are harvested in Spring and all our Silver Needle teas are exclusively bought during the Spring harvest.
