Bai Hao Yin Zhen (Silver Needle White Tea)
Fuding Da Bai
The two major cultivars employed by these regions are Fuding Da Bai and Zhenghe Da Bai, named after their origins. These differences are important to distinguish the two major styles of Silver Needles — the Zhenghe style and the Fuding style. The former is usually a lot darker, with significantly longer piled-up time for oxidation, yielding a tea with fuller body than the latter style, which is generally lighter with shorter oxidation. The character of the tea tree leaves of the former allows for the extended piled-up time without turning bad. Both styles have their own group of followers, as taste is a rather personal preference.

Description from site:
The tea is made from fresh slender fall buds from Fuding, Fujian Province, the ancestral home of white tea. The flavour is fresh and slightly polleny with honey and floral undertones. It is a showcase silver needle and is everything that you would expect in complexity, subtlety and longevity. If you are looking for a tea with a serious "wow" factor then this is the one.
