Baihao Yinzhen, also silver needle tea called, is one of the worlds finest and also one of China’s 10 famous teas. Baihao Yinzhen is like Bai Mudan a white tea and both are made from the Da Bai cultivar. Baihao Yinzhen is known for it’s positive health effects due to the high content of phenols such as EGCG. But, tea connoisseurs mostly drink Baihao Yinzhen because of the distinctive and delicate aroma.
This silver needle tea
is made from the first harvest and of the highest quality. The tea is processed according to Zhenghe style. White tea from Zhenghe
differs from Fuding white tea
due too a slight stronger oxidation. The infusion is therefor full-bodied compared to Fuding style white tea.
The new harvest of 2020 is of even better quality. This is due to the earlier harvest which is in fact the first pick of the year. One can see the difference in the shape of the buds. The early picked buds are shorter and thicker compared to later harvested buds. We will upload later a photo for compare.
