Origin

Hunan, China Also known as 'Yin Zhen', Silver Needles is an organic, famous white tea made from the prized, newly sprouted 'tips' of the tea plant. At least five tea bushes are needed to produce approximately 50 grams of this limited production tea.

White Tea

The tips have silvery white hair 'down’ that provide a honey texture to the brew. The tips are 'heated braised' in covered pans or dried in direct sun with minimal or no oxidization- a process exclusive to making white tea.

Hunan

Hunan is located in the middle reaches of the Yangtze River and south of Lake Dongting (its name meaning 'South of the lake'). The known attractions in Hunan include Changsha- main city, Dongting-a famous lake, Yueyang- historical tower and Mt. Hengshan and Taohua Yuan- nature reserve. Hunan is also famous for its spicy food.

Season

Although, Silver Needles can be made at several times in the year, the young buds are the best in spring. If stored well (airtight in dark low humidity), the buds retain flavor over time.

Flavor Profile

Roasted chestnut and wild honey aroma with a delicate, lingering honeysuckle sweetness.

The Tao of Tea

Like the Tao, the art of tea is universal. We began our work with tea in 1997 to be a connecting thread for tea culture. Practicing the art on a daily basis in our teahouses in Portland, Oregon, we are a group of tea enthusiasts from different backgrounds and cultures. We travel, learn, take delight and seek to offer pure leaf teas with great flavor, artistry and soul. Our reward comes through actions that help people's lives, sustain the art of tea and promise a healthy environment.

Suggested Use

Brewing

Brew two teaspoons of leaf in eight ounces of pure spring water at 175F for five minutes Provides at least two infusions.

Other Ingredients

100% organic white tea leaves.

Smooth Taste

Posted by TrueShoppingAdvice on Jan 17, 2016

First time I have drunk silver needle tea. Taste is mild. Easy to drink. Supposed to be very healthy. Use a knife to get the container open easily. Preserves tea quality well, I suppose, it is so tightly closed. Please, visit my page for more reviews, especially for new customers to iHerb to see other good products. Enjoy your iHerb experience!

My favourite tea

Posted by Reviewer2901286 on Nov 02, 2014

I really love this tea, it has a wonderfully soft aroma and a great floral taste, isn't bitter for me. In my opinion is the best product of "The Tao of Tea" brand. All the content are delicate white tea sprouts, without powder unlike other teas. Only thing they can improve is the price. El contenido de la lata son brotes tiernos de té que se abren al añadir agua caliente. El aroma es maravilloso, meloso y floral y el sabor muy suave, nada amargo para mi gusto. En mi caso, creo que merece la pena si estás dispuesto a gastarte lo que cuesta.
