Silver Needle Tea

Silver Needle Tea

Pure, delicate white tea of the Silver Needle variety. This is made from the youngest, silvery buds of the tea plant, harvested right at the beginning of the season, and rolled into needle-like shapes. It gives you the gentlest floral aroma and delights your tastebuds with a light, fruity flavour. Since only the youngest buds are used for this, we usually have limited quantities of this tea at a time.
