Less than 1% of all the tea produced in the world is white tea. Yin Zhen Silver Needles is some of the finest quality available. Each leaf is harvested as a young tea shoot before the shoot opens and drops its silver down coating.
This is the least processed tea, so it has the highest levels of antioxidants in tea per serving with the least amount of caffeine. Silver Needles tea is smooth and easy to drink. The flavor is very delicate, so we recommend enjoying the tea by itself.
