Delicate, fresh, and slightly sweet perfectly describes the flavor and fragrance of this rare tea named for its tight, fat needle shape. The beautifully large, fleshy leaf buds are cloaked in very fine silver tea hairs, a royal flare most prized by the Chinese Imperial Family for centuries. Considered to be quite rare, the first flush of leaf shoots (top buds) of the “Big White,” “Small White,” and “Narcissus” tea bushes are plucked for only two days of the year.
Organic Imperial Fuding Silver Needle White Tea originates from the Fuding and Zhenghe cities in Fujian province, from the Da Bai Hao tea bush variety. The first mention of White Tea appears in the “Treatise on Tea” by the Emperor Huizong (1107-1110). Now anyone can enjoy this luxurious tea once reserved only for royals.
