    Comforting, spicy/mineral tea, indeed more complex than other white teas.

A Fuding Silver Needle aged for over 10 years! Need we write more?

This tea was a lucky find from a trip to Fuding and we originally released it as part of a limited batch White Tea tasting experience. Since then we have been sipping it in our private collection and planning to keep it all to ourselves!

But, given the ridiculous amounts of tea that is building up in our home, we have decided to release some more of this fabulous Silver Needle to the public for you all to enjoy.

The pickings and storage are both excellent, offering a rare opportunity to taste a 10-year-old Silver Needle without spending a fortune on a cake pressed tea. It is sweet, creamy, nutty, fruity and floral in every sip. Truly a special White and one that we highly recommend grabbing for your collection.
