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

Teas purchased in bulk by-the-pound quantities are packaged in a heat-sealed foil bag with a re-sealable zip lock. These sturdy, foil bags protect the tea's freshness and flavor.
Our elegant, embossed tin is designed to keep tea fresh and full of flavor.
Each tin holds approximately 48 teaspoons (16 tablespoons) of loose tea. The number of servings-per-tin varies depending upon the type of tea, leaf size, cup size and desired strength (amount of tea used).
The tin itself measures 6.25 inches tall, 2.75 inches wide and 2 inches deep. Although one tin holds 16 fluid ounces by volume, the actual ounce weight of the tea within varies depending on the density of the leaf.
Samples are packaged in re-sealable foil bags that contain approximately 6 teaspoons (2 tablespoons) of loose-leaf tea. One sample brews between 2-6 cups depending on desired strength.
The bag itself measures approximately 3 inches wide, 5 inches tall and 0.5 inches deep.
