2013 Aged Fuding Silver Needles White Tea Bai Hao Yin Zhen 白毫银针
Silver Needles is one of the most famous teas from China, the king of white tea. This aged Silver Needle was hand picked and sun dried from its true origin of Fuding, Fujian province. There is Chinese saying regarding the aging benefits of Fuding white tea: "Year one of tea, year three of medicine, year seven of treasure". After seven years of aging, this tea is delightfully aromatic, fruity, mellow and sweet, no astringency or sharpness, not only producing a deeply satisfying cup, but also providing great health benefits.
Most interior silver needles on the US market are not Fuding white tea, some are from other parts of China, some are even from other countries. At Meimei Fine Teas, we only offer high quality teas from the true origin as terroir plays very important role in tea taste and sensory experience.
