Silver Needle White Tea (or Bai Hao Yin Zhen) is one of the most revered of Chinese teas, produced in the Funding and Zhenhe districts of it's Fujian province. This delicate tea is harvested before the tea plant's leaves open fully, when the young buds are still covered by fine white hairs. When brewed properly, the resulting liquor of the Silver Needle tea is the bright clear apricot color with a fresh aroma that has delightful nuances
The lingering fragrance of our Halda Valley Silver Needle White is delicately honey-suckle floral, with a warmed sugar sweetness and soft mouthfeel and uplifting finish. Every sip of it is refreshing, soft and airy on the plate, perfect to enjoy in multiple infusions.

More caffeine than green tea:
The leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant will always contain caffeine. So whether you drink white, green, yellow, Oolong, black, or Pu-erh, all of them will provide a pick-me-up assuming they’re not the decaffeinated (which still contain a little bit too).
Appearance: Buds are large, fat, and covered in pale silvery-white fuzz or “down”.
Aroma: Light, sweet, and floral, like fresh wildflowers with a hint of honey.
Flavor: Smooth, light, fresh, and slightly sweet, without much astringency. Sometimes has a juicy or even citrus undertone reminiscent of tangerine or mandarin orange.
Color: Beautiful silver-white color.
How to steep:
Pre-heat your cup with hot water. Then pour the water out.
Fill the cup with 80°C (176°F) hot water.
Let the tea steep for 3 minutes. Drink when most of the leaves have sunk to the bottom of the cup.
