White Hair Silver Needle (Bai Hao Yin Zhen) is one of the most revered of Chinese teas, produced in the Fuding and Zhenhe districts of Fujian province. Gathered only for a few days in early spring, the dedication to perfection is evident in the pale, ivory colored liquor. The lingering fragrance of our Silver Needle is delicately honeysuckle floral, with a warmed sugar sweetness and a subtle hint of white grapes. Silver Needle feels refreshing, soft and airy on the palate. This is a superior grade Bai Hao version of this exquisite tea, perfect to enjoy in multiple infusions.

Transparent glass with handle or gaiwan is recommended for White Hair Silver Needle tea brewing. By using glass, the dramatic pose changing of this tea leaves in the water can be appreciated through the glass from all angles. The steeping water temperature about 95°c would be best. Use 3g-4g of leaves for 150ml of water. The brewing method is basically same way as brewing other green teas. Brewing time should be longer, due to its untwisted process that tea juice is not easily released.
