"Silver Needle" Bai Hao Yin Zhen White Tea
One warm summer evening, after long meditation, a young monk said dreamingly:
— Ah, how I would love to have something warm yet refreshing, with a sweet taste and a light scent of soy milk.
— This wish is easy to make happen, – answered the wise tea master Lao Cha. – Drink some Bai Hao Yin Zhen – Silver Needle White Tea.
Silver Needle White Tea in Chinese is called 'Bai Hao Yin Zhen'. Silver (Bai Hao) refers to the white pekoe; while Needle (Yin Zhen) describes the appearance of the thick and straight tea buds, which have tips that are straight and sharp like needles. When brewing this tea, the hot water arouses the delicate fragrance of the tea. Take a sip. You will feel the smooth tea carrying a strong fragrance accompanied by a slight soy milk scent. The aftertaste comes quick and leaves a long-lasting tender aroma on the palate.
