Silver Needle (or Bai Hao Yin Zhen) is one of the most revered of Chinese teas, produced in the Fuding and Zhenhe districts of its Fujian province. Gathered only for a few days in early spring, the dedication to perfection is evident in the pale, ivory-colored liquor. The lingering fragrance of our Silver Needle is delicately honeysuckle floral, with a warmed sugar sweetness and a subtle hint of white grapes. Silver Needle feels refreshing, soft and airy on the palate. This is a high-grade Bai Hao version of this exquisite tea, perfect to enjoy in multiple infusions.

White Tea | Moderate caffeine | Steep at 180° for 3 minutes.

Our teabags contain the same high-quality tea as our loose-tea offerings. Their pyramid shape gives the leaves plenty of room to unfurl and infuse, placing more flavor in each cup. Enjoy the superior flavor of gourmet tea with the convenience of a disposable bag.

Fresh From Origin

Produced in both Fuding and Zhenhe districts (Fujian, China) Silver Needle (Yin Zhen) is both a popular “senior tea” enjoyed for its low caffeine and a revered tea classic made with reverence, and appreciated by the most discerning palates. Harvested during a tiny window of time, often just several days, gently withered and dried, Silver Needle lives up to its centuries-old reputation for attentive labor during processing that results in a lingering fragrance and a flavor of subtle white grape and honeysuckle essence. High grade production equals multiple infusions, each more floral than the last.
