Bai Hao Yinzhen
WORTH WAITING FOR
Patience is a virtue when making tea, and when picking it too. Genuine Silver Needle also known as Bai Hao Yinzhen is a white tea best picked between late March and early April, when the year's first new buds ‘flush’ just before opening. And then, after waiting for the ideal conditions on a sunny morning, when the sun is high enough to dry off any remaining dew from the buds, the pickers can go to work. From Fujian Province, it is amongst the most expensive, the most prized and the famous of China’s white teas.

China, Fujian Fuding
Fuding is one of the main producing areas for white tea in China. It’s surrounded by highlands with spectacular rock formations, caves and towering mountains, including the famed Taimu mountain – known as ‘Paradise at sea’. The region is awash with rolling hills, fresh streams and forests. The hilly territories with their red and yellow soils and the year-round mild climate and consistent rainfall contribute to the unique flavour of the white tea produced here.
