    Scoop: Named in Chinese for its reserves of passive yin energy, Silver Needle is a trusted antidote for too much heat in the system, and is an age-old remedy for the measles.

    Character: Produced in Fujian province, this exquisite tea is made only from new buds that are picked before they start to open. 'Baihao' (pek-ho) refers to the tiny white hairs on the underside of each tightly curled leaf bud and which give the tea its beautiful silvery velvet appearance. Yinzhen is picked for only a few days each spring and is sometimes also referred to as Silver Needle White Fur, or Yinfeng. The neatly pointed silver buds stand upright in the water to give a pale yellow liquor that is smooth, sweet and extremely elegant.

    The production of this tea, as we know it today, dates from the early Jia Qing period of the Qing dynasty (1796). This tea was grown exclusively as a tribute paid to the emperor At the time, wild tea buds were picked in the Fuding region. After 1885, these were replaced by the buds of the Da Bai tea tree. Considered a great delicacy, this tea is made from a harvest of fine picking in which only the buds are taken.

    Tasting notes: The smell of fresh-cut hay and fields of flowers bathed in dew emanates from the steeped buds. The liquid, which tastes both sweet and vegetal, releases delicate notes of flowering clover and wheatgrass. Smooth and fluid, it leaves graceful aromas, in which apricot and artichoke combine, in the mouth. Its long finish, honeyed and thirst quenching, is soothing to the palate.
