SILVER NEEDLES YIN ZHEN (BAI HAO) WHITE TEA
Ready to sip on China’s most expensive variety of white tea? Silver needles (also known as Bai Hao Yin Zhen) is a delicate Chinese white tea hailing from the Fujian province. In its most pure and traditional form, this white tea consists only of tender spring buds that brew up an almost crystal clear infusion. Experts describe this tea as having a refreshing and palate-engaging tasting profile. A dainty brew that’s perfect on its own. Any additions would only mar its rare and refined flavours!
What makes Bai Hao Yin Zhen so expensive? Aside from the tea’s premium grading (denoting how the blend comprises only downy buds from the tip of the tea plant), this white tea’s entire production is done almost entirely by hand. The white tips are plucked, withered, and carefully dried using orthodox methods. As a result, Bai Hao Yin Zhen boasts a low tannin content, making for a tea that’s light in both colour and taste.
An ethereal blend that doubles as an indulgent gift. In the market for other exquisite white tea loose leaf? Be sure to check out our high-quality pai mu tan tea, which also comes in an organic variety here.
