Silver Needle White
Regarded among many as one of the world’s finest teas, this delicate white tea was for centuries reserved only for the Chinese Royal Family. Picked from Fuding, China, it brews into a tranquil, light, crisp and refreshing cup reminiscent of the freshness of honeydew melon and ripe cantaloupe. Silver Needle delivers refreshing flavor, yet still satisfies with a full and textured finish. From antiquity to your evening mug, this tea has delighted generations, and will surely delight you.

Mellow, light, crisp, elegant, refreshing (great for iced tea) soft and mellow, with the freshness of honeydew melon and the soothing sweetness of a ripe cantaloupe. Light, delicate quenching flavors underpinned by cucumber and melon freshness yet surprisingly full textured with a satisfying velvety finish.
