Silver Needle White Tea consists of only the buds of the plant and is very rare, as it is harvested only two seasons of the year. Silver Needle White Tea is considered as the gold standard of white teas. It is most commonly produced in the Fujian province of China, but it is also cultivated in Yunnan Province and other countries around the world.
High quality whole-leaf loose teas are beautifully presented in light proof and vacuum packed foils in these bookshelf styled teas. These whole leaves can be re-infused up to 8 times per serving.
We started producing this world famous tea on August 2017.
The requirements for picking of this White tea buds are very strict. Our tea pluckers pluck the leaves with the utmost care and attention to detail. The leaves are harvested while very young, and the buds are still covered in very fine, white hairs. These buds and unfurled leaves are handpicked and then meticulously withered and then dried under sun. The delicate art of maintaining the perfect balance between indoor withering and solar drying, makes Halda Valley Silver Needle White Tea such a highly regarded precious tea.
Because white teas are treated gently and not overly processed, they retain most of their beneficial antioxidants. White tea and green tea have similar amounts of catechins, a class of antioxidants, according to a study published in 2010 in the “Journal of Food Science.” So if you've wanted to drink green tea for health reasons but don't like the strong flavor, white tea will be an antioxidant-rich alternative. Like most fine Chinese white teas – our silver needle white tea also has a concentration of Polyphenols, amino acid, packed with minerals and caffeine. Along with catechins, they help lowering cholesterol, regulate blood glucose, improves reproductive Health, fight against cancer cells and may even prevent cell damage.
