Chinese white tea Yin Zhen or, literally, “Silver Needles” is one of the rarest and most precious tea in the world. Produced in Fujian in a very limited area, it consists of the only perfect early spring buds, still covered with a white downy hairs. Once beverage solely suitable to Emperors (whose symbol was the Phoenix, the legendary bird that is cyclically reborn) gives a clear and mellow infusion with flowery aroma and long lasting sugary aftertaste.
