This white tea with a white downy appearance comes from the province of Zhejiang. The Silver Needle, highest quality white tea, is picked during the spring before the buds open to preserve its tenderness. Exquisite and delicate, Silver Needle has a fresh, sweet fragrance and produces a pale yellow brew. Brewing with a Yixing teapot can best show the aroma of Silver Needle. This tea has high concentrations of polyphenols (antioxidants that help fight against cancer-causing radicals and heart disease)
I tried this tea both HOT and ICED. I like them both. Here is why…
Zhejiang Silver Needle, (Zhejiang Bai Hao Yinzhen) from EnjoyingTea is VERY Flavorful for a unflavored white. My palate was telling me it was sweet with hints of pepper on my HOT attempt. When I tried this one COLD there was no pepper-likeness at all. For both HOT and COLD it was very slippery on the tongue. It leaves a Lovely aftertaste. I had no idea I would enjoy this one THIS much! But am so glad that I did.
