Superfine Silver Needle White Tea (Bai Hao Yin Zhen)

Bai Hao Yin Zhen, or “Silver Needle White Tea,” has a lovely name. Bai Hao, or’silver,’ refers to the downy white pekoe developing along the buds, whilst Yin Zhen, or ‘needle,’ depicts the look of the thick, straight buds with needle-like points.


TeaVivre’s Superfine Silver Needle White Tea was collected in 2022, before Qingming. All of the raw materials are hand-selected. Typically, 2000g-2500g fresh leaves provide 500g of tea. The tea buds are plump and heavily coated with white pekoe after withering. The new white tea has a strong pekoe aroma as well as a flowery scent. When brewed in a glass tea cup, the buds gently absorb water, get bigger, and stand erect in the water, which is appealing. Take a sip, and you’ll notice the smooth liquid carrying that strong fragrance, as well as a slight soymilk scent and a long-lasting tender aftertaste in your mouth.
