Ying Zhen Silver Needle white tea comes from Fujian province of China and is regarded as one of the finest white China teas. The tea is more expensive than other white teas because only the young buds are picked.
This tea is traditionally picked for only a few days in spring. After picking, the tea leaves are simply left to dry in the sun or in closed rooms without any technical intervention, making it one of the most unprocessed teas in the world.
Ying Zhen Silver Needle white tea is so named because the tea buds resemble pine needles.
It has a mellow flavour with a delicate smoky aftertaste.
This tea should be brewed using water off the boil between 75°C and 80°C. Brew for 1-3 minutes.
Serve without milk or sugar.
Available in 125g loose.
