Shenya Silver Needle is a luxury green variety of Yin Zhen tea. It is a limited, organic pre-Qing Ming Jie early spring harvested tea. It is grown and produced in the northern district of Fujian province in China, high in the mountains giving the leaf a deep silvery-sage green color. 

A beloved Chinese delicacy, the world is just beginning to appreciate this fine treasure! The early harvest only lasts a few days, the picking is only premium, thick, whole, young buds. It has become increasingly difficult to enjoy outside of China, as it is available only for a brief period in the spring and the Chinese market enjoys most of the crop. 

Our luxury young silver needle tea is delicate, a refined tea-drinkingexperience. Once steeped, its liquor is pale golden; at first sip, it has a slightly savory note with a clean and sweet finish, a woodsy fragrance that complements its light body.
