    Cream, powdered sugar, tropical fruits. Fruitiness and florality emerge around the 3rd or 4th steep. Ends with a slight tartness that makes it very refreshing (like drinking a tropical fruit juice).

A fruity and creamy Silver Needle made in Guangxi using sun withering to bring out extra complexity.

White teas produced outside of Fujian (the mother province of White Tea) have their own unique character and this Silver Needle is no exception. The idyllic terroirs of Guangxi make a tea which has more fruitiness and tropical, floral notes than the traditional taste from Fuding and Zhenghe. It is a very early Spring picked tea - the first flush of the year when the buds are at their most fat and flavourful. The buds are supreme quality and they brew up to make a tick, velvety brew with a unique character. Check out those tasting notes.

If you would like to compare this Silver Needle with one from Yunnan and a special aged one from Fuding then pick up one of our limited edition Silver Needle Experience.
