Old Tree Yunnan Silver Needle - Organic
This old tree variety has the sweet mellow body of a fine white tea combined with a lightly smokey aroma, mildly earthy flavor, and delightfully savory finish.
Silver Needle is the rarest and most prized of white teas. It is comprised of only the downy tea buds before they open, so that they resemble soft white needles. Its flavor is extremely fresh, because so little processing takes place in Silver Needle production. The leaves are very lightly oxidized, and undergo no frying or rolling process.
