Product Description

This special silver needle was first found on the 2012 spring tea tour and is grown from tea bushes over 100 years old.  Not only is this tea a silver needle, comprised entirely of soft downy buds, this specific kind of silver needle was grown from wild tea bushes over 100 years old. The size of the buds are smaller and dark greener than normal silver needle. White teas go through very little processing. The buds of the tea plants are picked early in the harvesting season before the leaves have time to bloom.    The tea is sweet tasting and full bodied with an incredibly long lasting finish that will leave your mouth watering. After multiple steeps this tea takes on a more floral scent.
