  • Description

    Special type of white tea which was newly created by a Taiwanese farmer in YunNan. This tea was made with leaves from the big old tea trees which over 50 years old found only in YunNan. Resources indicate the fresh tea leaves of this tea are withered in the moonlight at mid-night, it is not allow to expose to sunlight.That's why the tea leaves look like the colour of the moon. 

    This tea has a sweet taste like regular white tea, and the fragrance is very similar to black tea. Some said it tastes very similar to the first flush of Darjeeling, except this tea has stronger woody notes because the tea leaves are pluck from very old tea trees.  

    Highest grade and most expensive type of tea 

    Quote:

    Tea buds, also called tips or needles, are the youngest part of the tea plant and are bursting with goodness. On the other hand, they also happen to be tiny AND super time-consuming to pick: you need thousands and thousands of buds to make just one kilo of Silver Needle. 

    This bud-only pick is why Silver Needle is so expensive, and also less common than other white teas. In most cases, it’s not worth it to pick just these tiny little buds alone. 

    But something interesting happens when you use just the buds, Remember that the buds are the smallest, most precious part of the tea plant (since they’ll later grow up to be bigger leaves).

    So tea bushes put in TONS of effort into producing these buds AND protecting them from cold, stress, and pests. As a result they contain the highest levels of the good stuff in tea: caffeine, theanine, and polyphenols

    白普洱茶中含有的維生素c、維生素e、茶多酚、氨基酸和微量元素等具有抗氧化作用,延緩衰老過程,因此普洱茶被稱為“益壽茶”。

    此茶產於雲南省景邁山,其原料要求必須是老樹春茶中的一芽一葉,要求選茶精細,將剛採摘的鮮新古茶嫩尖放置於土基房內,夜間在月光下自然發酵而成,其間不得見陽光。入口香甜,味特純正,喝後嘴裡還有股淡淡的甜味。
