Hand-picked only a few days a year, Silver Needle consists only of the first-flush, spring buds of the tea plant, making it the highest grade of white tea and one of the rarest teas in the world. Silver Needle’s clear, delicate, nectar-like infusion has an evanescent sweetness and a mellow, lingering finish. White tea contains powerful antioxidants and the amino acid theanine, which is known for its ability to reduce stress, enhance mental clarity and act as a natural anti-depressant.

Origin: "Silver Needle"/ Bai Hao Yin Zhen from Fujian, China
