About Silver Needle (Bai Hao Yinzhen)
Silver Needle (Bai Hao Yinzhen) is a very famous Chinese White tea. The quality of Silver Needle varies significantly depending on where it is grown and how carefully it is processed.
While the highest regard is given to Fuding Silver Needle, our Zhenghe Silver Needle one ups anything you'll find in the West. Our Silver Needle is a "Lao Bai Cha" — an "aged" White tea. Aged White teas have richer flavors and health benefits compared to White tea you'll find in any old tea shop. That's why our Silver Needle commands a high price on the open market, and we've been lucky enough to bring ours to the US to share with our customers.
