Yunnan Silver Needle

WHITE TEA

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.

silver

I love the softness of the velvety needles and the contrast between the almost colorless cup and the rind-tart sweetness of the tea -- like a winter garden dreaming of summer

Mix and match

I have ordered this tea twice and love the mild flavor. I often mix it with stronger, flavored white teas like pear or peach to cut the strong taste that some of the flavored teas have. I will continue to order it as long as it is available.

Favorite Tea

This is one of my favorite teas. I make a couple pots of tea daily, and when Yunnan Silver Needle is not one of the teas I use, it never tastes as good. It is subtle, but memorable.

Great Silver Needle

This is a beautiful tea! I love Silver Needle tea and I drink several cups of it every day. Smith’s Silver Needle is lots of tightly wrapped leaves of white tea buds, the “silver needles” which release a delicate, aromatic, golden brew. As a heart patient, my caffeine intake is limited. My cardiologist says I can have as many cups of this tea as I want every day. Have I mentioned how much I love this tea?

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.
