Doke Silver Needle

    This organic Doke Silver Needle White Tea shows how this family run garden is constantly innovating (Chinese Silver Needles are only harvested once per year). Like most Silver Needle White Tea’s from India, these leaves are loose and slightly darker and produces the delicious white tea flavors. This is a truly extraordinary Silver Needle tea.

    This tea is made from the tender buds (top leaf shoots) of the tea plant which are handpicked before the sun rises. The long tea buds are thick and strong and are covered in the dense downy needle-like silver-white hair which is the speciality of this tea. These leaves produce a sweet and creamy, full-bodied golden liquor with notes of peach blossom and dried apricot. 

    'Silver Needle' Tea is highly rich in flavonoid (antioxidants) because its leaves are least processed among all types of teas when they are harvested. Hence, it contains the maximum of its naturally occurring antioxidants which are good for your health. This tea is a natural de-stress tea with sweet complexity and smooth well-rounded quality.
