A stunning white tea from the Fujian province of China, this fully textured velvety tea has light delicate, fruity flavours. Lightly oxidized, flavours of the silver needle are underpinned by cucumber and melon freshness. White tea comes from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, the same one that produces green, black and oolong teas. Like green tea, white tea leaves are minimally processed, but unlike green tea, only the youngest leaves and buds of the plant are used. Silver needle white tea consists of only the buds of the plant and is very rare, as it is harvested only two days of the year. Like all white teas, it is high in antioxidants. This glittering pale yellow tea with a viscous finish is delicately brewed at 60-70 degrees Centigrade for less than two minutes.
