This micro-batch of Silver Needles was grown by specialist producers in Jinggu county of Yunnan province, who have crafted select cultivars onto the rootstock of 30-40 year old tea trees. These unique cultivars offer a range of amino acid, polyphenol, and aromatic complexities that are not found in the average tea garden. The older roots provide ample nourishment to the plants and yield a complex fruity and nectar-like flavor profile not found in traditional Fuding Silver Needles, which emphasizes a savory umami taste.


Origin

Jinggu county, Yunnan province, China
