  • Description:

    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.

    Sweet, floral, non-nutty. Get it!

    This is smooth, with no bitterness and a bright floral flavor. It is a sweet cup of tea with no nuttiness to it. I have been a tea connoisseur for more than a decade, and this is a good cup. You won't regret it.

    Subtle

    This tea is subtle. So profound and complicate. For me, it is great, because I don't like those with too strong taste.

    Excellent tea for an excellent price.

    This is a fantastic tea. It's very delicate and sweet, smells of honeysuckle. I brew it 2 minutes at 175, and it produces a very light, but very aromatic, liqueur. I usually steep it 2-3 more times, a bit longer for each. I am worried about the reviews discussing inconsistencies in the order, since I would like to order this again when I run out. My batch looks just like what's pictured here.

    Soft elegant

    I once heard that this kind of tea is extremely expensive, but this one is relatively fair. It tastes not mellow, very light.
