Silver Needle is classified in the top ten superior Chinese teas! Yet our Imperial Yunnan Silver Needle was grown in Yunnan province. This variety of tea tree only grows in Jinggu, Yunnan, therefore the taste of Imperial Yunnan Silver Needle is distinctly different from teas produced in Fujian, where most other Silver Needle teas are grown and produced. A beloved Chinese favorite, the western world is just beginning to appreciate this fine treasure! Picked in the April harvest, our Imperial Silver Needle is a premium young white tea. Our Imperial Yunnan Silver Needle is slightly fermented to provide a thick, rich tea soup with a fruity aroma. It has a distinct sweetness and smooth texture that sets it apart from Fujian grown Silver Needle teas.

Imperial Silver Needle is renowned for its wide range of health benefits! The stresses of daily life and a poor diet can bring about early signs of aging but white tea may reduce fine lines and wrinkles- keeping your skin young and healthy looking! It is also rich in antioxidants, which can help to neutralise the effects of harmful free radicals.
