One of the most prestigious white teas is Silver Needle: early in the spring, individual leaf buds from the Da Bai Hao cultivar are picked and carefully handcrafted into this delicate tea in Fujian Province, China.
Each bud is covered with white downy hair, and yields an incredibly sweet fragrance and smooth, apricot-pit flavor. With its velvety texture, this is a cup to enjoy at any time of the day.
