The top grade of all white teas! Harvested in Spring at Fuding, province of Fujian, farmers only pick the bud of the Da Bai Hao tea bush. Named as such because of its silvery appearance, its obvious white, downy hair that contributes to its subtle, delicate, and lingering sweetness. The aroma of our Fuding Silver Needle tea is largely influenced by Jasmine flowers that was infused with the leaves at least five times! Feel the richness of the flavors and experience a one-of-a-kind refreshing pleasure.
Origin: Fujian Province

Always wash the leaves twice with hot water for a period of about 20 seconds each time to prime the dry leaves. The water from the initial infusions can wash and warm the cups. Then, infuse the leaves for 3-5 minutes before drinking. Gradually increase steeping time in the succeeding brews.
Note: High quality teas can be steeped for several more times. In the case of white teas, it can be steeped up to 4 more times! Please do not leave the tea leaves steeping in water. Remove it as soon as soon as you have achieved the desired strength to stop the brewing process. Of course, if you like your tea strong, you can steep it longer. Now, hold your cup and enjoy your perfect cup of tea!
