Bai Hao Yin Zhen also known as silver needles is the highest grade of white tea comprising solely of tea buds. White tea is one of the simplest method of tea processing which many believed were the original methods of how teas were processed, drying naturally as many farmers do with herbs. This allows the tea to be stored for long period and slowly undergo fermentation for more flavour development.
Downy Hairs found on the tea buds.
Produced in Zheng He, Fujian this is the first city named after a tea which has been called the Home of the White Tea. Zheng He enjoys excellent climate to grow tea and the varietal found here, Zheng He Da Bai is indigenous from the area. Research has discovered that it actually belongs to the Camelia Senesis, Assamica family.
Even so it may be slightly less famous than its cousin from the same province Fu Ding White Tea, which has been widely sold commercially as Zheng He's production yield is much smaller and more rare.
This particular microlot called Abundance Harvest, is produced in the heart of Zheng He tea production, Tie Shan Town (Iron Mountain Town) where original varietals of the Zheng He Da Bai varietals were found.
Natural cooling corridor made to dry the tea naturally.
This tea is supervised by Tea Master Yang Feng, who Chinese government appointed custodian for the Intangible Culture Heritage of making Zheng He Red and White Tea.
