Made up entirely of silky, fine buds, this Grand Cru tea is the most popular white tea in China. It is also one of the most subtle of its kind. These silver needles are harvested on Taimu mountain in Fuding, and are produced from the famous Fuding Da Bai cultivar.
It is a complex, subtle Chinese tea with floral, fruity, and vegetal notes blended into an oily texture. A superb classic.
