This white tea with a white downy appearance comes from the province of Zhejiang. The Silver Needle, highest quality white tea, is picked during the spring before the buds open to preserve its tenderness. Exquisite and delicate, Silver Needle has a fresh, sweet fragrance and produces a pale yellow brew. Brewing with a Yixing teapot can best show the aroma of Silver Needle. This tea has high concentrations of polyphenols (antioxidants that help fight against cancer-causing radicals and heart disease)

Taster’s Review:

This is a LOVELY Silver Needle White Tea – also known as Bai Hao Yinzhen – from Enjoying Tea.  It is so deliciously sweet and beautifully delicate.

The aroma is sweet and reminiscent of hay.  I’ve compared the fragrance of other Silver Needle teas that I’ve tried to the scent of the air that would surround a field of hay after a cutting, and that is true of this Bai Hao Yinzhen as well.  It smells fresh.

The flavor is also fresh tasting.  Sweet, mellow vegetative tones.  It is certainly delicate, and I have heard that some people tend to avoid white teas because of their delicate quality.  I would say don’t let this detract you!  It took me a while to allow my palate to adapt to the lighter characteristics of a white tea … but once my palate became accustomed to the softer flavor, it was so rewarding!  I love white tea!

This Silver Needle from Enjoying Tea is an absolute delight!

    I have enjoyed this tea as well but it was made by a different tea vendor…David’s Tea.

    The tea is so mellow, wine like even, it was most enjoyable.

    Good review and thank you for sharing.
