Silver Needles Down

Silver Needles, aka Bai Hao Yin Zhen, are revered for their beauty and flavor around the world. Painstakingly hand-plucked in early spring, the soft jade green buds are covered in white down. Strict minimal processing is employed: hand-plucking, sun withering, and then a gentle finishing bake. Fuding’s terroir provides the unmistakable signature aroma/flavor profile: fresh wet mineral clay, hint of honeydew melon, creamy, and soft sweet finish.
