Yunnan Silver Needle

WHITE TEA

11 reviews

Harvested in early spring, this white tea is produced in the Yunnan Province of China, the birthplace of tea, and is made from only the bud of the tea bush. With delicate sweetness and melon-like flavor, it has subtle floral notes and a lingering complexity telling of the terroir of Yunnan.

Tasting Notes:

Hay, bitter greens, honey

Yunnan Silver Needle

This is the perfect white tea to drink plain or mix with other teas. I have a pear flavored tea that has a very intense flavor. When I mix it 1/2 and 1/2 with the Yunnan Silver Needle, it is the perfect cup of tea

Extraordinary tea!

Hands down the loveliest white tea, hot or iced. No mustiness or duskiness at all. Clear and light with the most delicious delicate flavor. It's not at all like jasmine tea, which I don't like, but there is a subtle most delicious flavor that reminds me of jasmine. I have tried several well regarded white teas but have never had white tea like this. It's now a staple in our home.

Perfect Tea to Mix With Flavored Teas

I do not care for the strong flavor of most flavored teas so I use the Silver Needle tea as a “base” and add a small amount of flavored tea to it. Perfect cup of tea

delicate silver needle

Surprised and happy to see this silver needle tea. I had the chance to visit a tea place in Hunan in 1985. There was an island in the middle of the lake where the emperor had kept his concubine. They were just moving away from a more communal village to cultivating tea again for sale. I will never forget that first cup of silver needle tea,. This one is from Yunnan and every bit as delicate.

Yunnan Silver Needle

Chinese White Tea

This white tea is made from only the bud of the tea bush. With delicate sweetness and melon-like flavor, it has subtle floral notes and a lingering complexity, that is also telling of the terroir of Yunnan.

Yunnan Province

Yunnan which translates to "South Cloud", is a province jammed into the South Western most part of China. Not only does it share international borders with Myanmar, Laos and Vietnam, but there is a constant cultural exchange in these border regions which is distinct from the rest of mainland China. Tea was first cultivated in this region thousands of years ago and it still makes some pretty amazing teas. Our Yunnan Silver Needle is harvested in early spring.
