Silver Needle White Tea, (Bai Hao Yinzhen)

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). Free shipping with purchase over $60.

Very good tea. Has a mild flavor and can get more than one brew from leaves. This allows for a good bargain.

I haven't been able to afford silver needle in a long time. We received a discount and bought two pounds. Silver needle has been missed.

A fav for me, this one will go three steeps so the price is a little more in line, not that it's expensive mind you. Good color, taste gets my morning started right.

The BEST tea ever!
I am so glad to have found a U.S. supplier of silver needle white tea. It is super high in antioxidants (more than green tea) and it has a nice mild flavor. I usually get two brews out of my leaves. It's kind of expensive so I try to get double the tea out of my leaves. Super fast service and shipping and very fresh and sealed.

Smooth, lovely & relaxing!
The silver needle white tea is my favorite of all of the white teas at Enjoying Tea. I always like to stock up for fear it will be unavailable. I do not use any sweetener as it seems to have it all on its own.

Watch water temp and steep time

Watch water temp and steep time
This is very good tea but I have found that the temp and time are important for this tea not to get bitter.

My daily go-to
I have been a long-time loose white tea drinker. I continue to be impressed with the quality and freshness of this tea. I also would like to note that the price of the tea was lower than the sites I have previously purchased this tea but the quality was better.

...this is a wonderful tea. Anybody who is a tea lover and knows about 'tea-class' must like this particular brand….
…what I do not like about is the high shipping costs and despite of this, it takes a loooooong time for the product to reach my home…..the quality of your products however are outstanding, the reason why I still buy my teas from you…..

Simply the best white tea I tried
The smooth and mellow flavor of this tea make it a go to for all times of the day. A Taiwanese co-work tried a cup and was blown away with the amazing flavor. It was the first time he had a white tea and as a drinker of Taiwan green teas from small private growers was in awe of Silver Needles.

Health with good taste
I drink a lot of iced tea. I usually make a gallon of Silver needle, and, a gallon of Cream Earl Gray, both with a bit of honey. The white tea is recommended for it's anti-oxidants,a the slightly grassy taste of the Silver Needle perfectly compliments the taste of a bit of raw honey I add, YUM!

Instant favorite
I was never into white teas, mainly because all of the ones that had been served to me tasted like water. I decided to try this one because my wife likes lighter teas and steeps her green tea for a shorter time in order to make it taste lighter. Anyway, I got this tea, tried it myself first, and instantly loved it.

By itself it has a floral/fruity taste to it, sugar definitely brings this out more. You can also get 2-3 cups out of a single serving of this tea. These tea leaves are rather long, so a typical tea scoop will not work. Try using a regular spoon or a wide bamboo tea scoop. I have found that the best temps/times for steeping this tea are 175 degree water for 2.5 minutes for the first cup, 185 degree water for 3.5 minutes for the second cup, and 185 degree water for 5 minutes for the third cup. I typically add 0.5 teaspoon sugar to each cup of tea if drinking it alone. No sugar if I'm drinking the tea with some food.

Great tea for a low price
I love silver needle tea, it's my favorite of all teas. I had some silver needle tea from another company that starts with Tea and ends with vana that was twice as expensive as the enjoyingtea price. I was afraid the EnjoyingTea would be inferior because of this. But I compared them next to each other and they are EXACTLY the same. Awesome! Great tea for an amazing price!
