Bai Hao Yin ZhenWhite / China
Solely made up of downy buds, Bai Hao Yin Zhen—also called “silver needle tea”—is grown in Fuding, a terroir known for producing the best white teas in China.
Low in caffeine and tannins, its clear liquor is elegant and refreshing with a smooth, velvety texture. Its delicate aromas of fresh sap, wildflowers and clover honey give this white tea a spring-like character and a naturally sweet taste. Its nice, slightly plant-like and fruity finish leaves your palate with a silkiness that evokes scents of early morning dew and wildflowers.
