Gathered only in the few days of early spring, the preparation of this tea is governed by strict requirements to ensure a premium product. This dedication to perfection is evident in the cup, which is sweet and delicate with a clean, airy fragrance. Our 'Sublime Needle' is a Special Grade (Bai Hao) version of this exquisite tea.

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.
