The most delicate of all tea, unprocessed and crafted entirely from tender spring buds, high in the remote mountains of Fujian. Picked for only five days of the year, just before the buds unfurl to the first new leaves.

Also known as White Silver Needle and Baihao Yinzhen.

Silver white tea

This tea is so good that I don’t need any milk, sugar or lemon.

A joy to drink

This is an incredibly delicate tea with a beautiful gentle taste. I have found it perfect for that mid afternoon slump, very restorative.

Supreme Tea

Both the tea and the packaging I love .. The tea is very delicate with a touch of sweetness and depth of flavour.... Along with re useable tin's to keep the tea in, I highly recommend this tea.

China

Fuding, Fujian

Our white silver tip is sourced from a farm high in the Fujian mountains near the village of Fuding. This is the 'champagne' of white tea regions. Everything from picking to sorting is done by hand to exacting traditional methods. Tea may have the same name and come from the same area, but like wine, not all tea is equal.
