Crystal Needle comes from Xuan'en county in Hubei Province. This is not a Fujian tea, therefore, it is even more important to us. We sourced our Crystal Needle from the higher altitudes where the average temperature is rarely above 14 degrees Celsius and unique terroir is perfect for growing delicate silver needle tea. Cool climate and clean environment are important for the production of white tea that undergoes a very little processing. If you ever wondered what is the scent of sunshine on a freshly mowed spring lawn, we are offering you the brewable answer.
