White Silver Needles tea: Baihao Yinzhen

This famous budset silver needles tea is made only from downy white buds which are picked using the traditional plucking methods. Originally this was reserved for emperor and a few court dignitaries, Baihao Yinzhen is produced in China’s home of white tea, Fujian Province in the few weeks between March and April. Having a needle-like bud with a very pale, downy green colour it is one of the most exclusive teas you can buy. It creates a smooth, delicate yet distinctively pale cup with a honeyed aroma. It has a lovely buttery taste with a certain sweetness. Infuse for five minutes using boiled water that has cooled for a minute.

Smooth “This is such a pleasure to savour, smooth almost creamy, a tea drinker’s delight.
a clean & refreshing tea. I enjoyed this tea, light in colour but with an unusual natural sweetness. A fantastic tea.”
Can be enjoyed any time “This is a wonderful tea, very light in colour, taste and aroma. A cross between green and white in colour, a very refreshing tea with a unique flavour that can be enjoyed any time of night or day.”

Tea from Grey’s Teas

Our teas are loose leaf and we specialise in large leaf grades. All are made using traditional orthodox methods. Our teas are from named tea gardens or defined areas of origin.

Sourcing our tea

White Silver Needles tea has been chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour, aroma and appearance. Our tea is carefully sourced from long-established shippers. We can therefore guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

This loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A little extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!

Packing options

There are generally several packing options to choose from. These are 60 grams, 125 grams and 250 grams, the default being 125 grams in a packet. Our silver-coloured packets are a triple laminate of paper, foil and cellophane, specifically designed for tea. Alternatively, you can select a tin caddy for your tea. These square, silver coloured caddies have hinged lids. Again, 60 gram, 125 gram and 250 gram options are generally available as options which can be selected from the drop-down list. Packets and caddies have full-colour labels.
