Silver needles or Silver tips are the tiny buds of the tea plant. These are also only from a special clone of the plant Camellia Sinensis or the better known tea plant. These are carefully harvested and dried in the shade to avoid discolouration. The furry effect in the bud gives the silvery effect and needs extra care in handling and producing this tea as its very fragile especially when and after drying. Its a very light brew and has a mellow taste and a floral aroma.
Very well sort after tea as reflected in the price.
