Silver Needle Yin Zhen

Regular price £9.50
Tax included.

This white tea is the most prized, as only top leaf shoots (buds) of the Camellia Sinensis (BaiHao cultivar) plant are used to produce the tea.The buds are handpicked and laid on bamboo baskets and then left in the sun to dry (withering) White tea undergoes the least amount of processing compared to other types of tea and retains a high level of antioxidants and for that reason, it's known to have a long list of health benefits.
The name Silver Needle comes from the visual appearance of the buds and the tiny hairs that once dried give a silver shine to the buds.
