Silver Needle White Tea
A highly sought after white tea made in China's Northern Fujian province and only harvested for a couple of days each Spring, boasts young tender buds freshly plucked right before opening. Silver Needle is characterised by its unique needle like appearance covered with small white hair on the bud. This white tea dazzles with its savoury aroma, rich body and smooth delicate cup.
It is picked in early spring for a few days out of the whole year and only the buds are plucked. The flavour is strong and durable and its taste is fresh and delicious with buttery, nutty flavour. Said to have a more pronounced flavour though also delicate like other white teas, Silver Needle is arguably the finest of white teas.
It is a white tea and speculation is that white tea could be the healthiest of all the teas available, because of the rich antioxidants and other minerals that brings an abundance of health benefits. It could cure urticaria effectively and also has an effect on reducing fever, removing internal heat, adjusting blood pressure, detoxifying and resisting radiation.
