This exceptional tea is one of the rarest and finest organic teas available in the world. It is only harvested for 2-3 days each spring in China's Fujian province, and consequently a very limited supply is available. Silver Needle tea is handpicked from the first unopened leaf buds, and are immediately dried, allowing for a minimal amount of processing. Stunning to look at, the tea needles are frosted with graceful white hairs, and smooth texture. The taste is truly unique, with a mildly sweet floral finish that is refreshing and delicate, yet with a pronounced and lingering flavor.
