Silver Needle (also called Yinzhen) is made entirely from needle-shaped leaf buds that are covered in downy hair. Picked in the early spring, it brews a very pale yellow cup, and the flavor is full, bright, smooth, sweet, and accented with hints of bamboo and orchids. Silver Needle has the lightest flavor of all white teas.
If you are new to white tea and want something a bit more robust, maybe consider one of our Bai Mudan white teas.
