Yin Zhen Bai Hao is an extremely rare and legendary sort of White Tea, produced only in Fujian Province. Due to the tea’s particular uniqueness, its annual volumes of production are very small and are under stringent control by the Chinese government. The best grade Yin Zhen Bai Hao is produced using terminal buds plucked early spring. The tea’s processing consists of just two stages: open-air drying (withering) and thermal drying in special roasters. The Yin Zhen Bai Hao tea’s distinctive feature is its unusually long and straight, needle-shaped furry tea buds. Its transparent pale-yellow infusion possesses a light sweet aroma and pure, rich taste which carries slight notes of sweetness. During brewing, the buds float upright like stalactites in a cave and bewitchingly dance, floating up and down several times.
