Baihao Yinzhen aka Silver Needle is the finest of the white teas. It consists of the very most tender leaf buds plucked early spring, right after they begin to develop, but before they have had any time to open into leaves. The name Baihao Yinzhen means ‘white fur, silver needle’. It vividly encapsulates the appearance of the tea. The tea leaves are thin like a needle with a layer of white coat on them. There is a special silver sheen to the leaves, thus ‘silver needle’. The brew fills the mouth with a lingering floral sweetness.
