canton silver needle
Jinggu, Yunnan Province, China.
Silver Needle is beautiful as it’s made only from tender, young, silvery leaf buds, which are withered in the sun. This tea is chosen from a small batch grown on Jinggu Mountain in Yunnan Province in China and has a full-bodied flavour for a white tea. The buds are large, plump, succulent and irresistible.
The tea in the gift box is sealed in a clear compostable 'natureflex' bag, then packed in Canton's hinged-lid, airtight, white tin caddy and slipped inside a smart, black card gift box. The caddy is designed to keep. Use it to store high grade tea leaves bought in larger refill packs.
Ingredients: White tea (Camellia sinensis var. sinensis ‘Da Bai Hao’)
This variant is currently sold out.
