Brand: Yunnan Sourcing Tea Shop

We are proud to offer a Certified Organic White Tea from Yunnan.  This tea was grown in the Simao region.

This "Silver Needles" White Tea (白毫银针) is a Yunkang #10 varietal growing at an altitude 1260 meters (4150 feet) near Mulihe Village on Wan Zhang Mountain (just west of Pu'Er City).  The processing is typical, using "room temperature" air-drying (晾干).   There is very little withering and when brewed the tea leaves have a green/yellow color.

The tea brews a golden yellow tea soup that is thick, full-bodied with a creamy viscous mouth-feel.  The tea is sweet like sugarcane with hints of wheatgrass.  It is neither astringent nor bitter, and can be brewed 6 to 8 times gong fu style. 

Our Yunnan Sourcing Certified Organic teas are certified organic by EcoCert SA and are certified organic to international standards (EcoCert is IFOAM accredited).
