The silver needle is the finest white tea grade in the world made only from unopened buds. The buds are plucked and then simply withered and air-dried so that they retain their delicate flavors.

It's a soft and flavorful cup, brimming with sweet floral notes the hallmark attribute of a high-quality white tea.

Makes a great Evening Tea

White tea, known for it's lowest caffeine level and highest on polyphenol levels is the healthiest of all teas. This citrusy flavoured tea is very tasty and makes it tempting to consume multiple times a day, although best to have after a day's work for rejuvenation in the evening.
