Silver needle tea from Yunnan
China Yunnan Silver Needle "Baihao Yin Zhen"
Taste rating: fruity, cantaloupe / honeydew melon with a raisin odor
Yin Zhen Silver Needle Tea is one of the best and therefore also most expensive teas in the world. This particular white tea is made from the young, tender buds won from the tea plant.
The Silver Needle tea is especially good at his fine, downy hairs to recognize. It is also noteworthy that, unlike near all other teas, the tea leaves are not hard, but very soft.
For the Silver Needle tea, the tea leaves are not roasted or fermented, but quite simply air dried.
The result is the extraordinary, perfect taste that is reminiscent of sweetened tea with milk. In contrast to the white Pai Mu Tan tea the smell and taste of this tea is even more balanced.
