This very fine white tea comes from the province of Fujian. Only the tip is collected. Once dried, the downy bud takes on a gray hue. Its leaf looks like a needle; hence, its name. This is indisputably the finest quality tea in the world. Long ago, it was kept for the unique use of the emperor of China. It is very rich in vitamin C and very bright when steeped, and it can be left to stand three or four times. A wondrous tea whose discovery is well worth sharing.

This tea, also from Fujian Province, is made from tender new buds that are covered in silver-white hairs. Because of its silvery appearance, China White, or Fujian White.

Characteristics This is the perfect white tea. The leaves, that really do look like silver needles, are picked on only two days a year and are processed entirely by hand. It is very expensive but wonderful.

Brewing hints Brew 2 teaspoons in a scant 1 cup water at 185°F. Infuse for 15 minutes.

Drinking recommendations An all-day tea. Drink alone, without milk or sugar as a refreshing digestif.

Lovely teas
I bought these for my brother to start getting into loose tea. The flavors are amazing and came well packaged. Great tea selection for every taste! There's a lot of tea in each tin enough to brew several small pots. Overall, I’m very satisfied. It could be a perfect gift to someone who likes tea.

I like this tea because I like the gentle tea flavor
Great. If you like good tea you will not be disappointed. I like this tea because I like the gentle tea flavor. To me this tea is not bitter even if I forget and let the leaves steep a little too long. I will buy this tea again and I definitely recommend the tea to friends and family.
