Darjeeling Silver Needle, a highly sought afer white tea made in India's Darjeeling region and only harvested for a fewdays each Spring (this year June 2016), boasts young tender buds freshly plucked right before opening. This is one of the highest quality of all Silver Needle teas. Tea buds still have a very fresh green hue to them. The flavor is fresh, smooth, & clean. Health Benefits: Low in caffeine, super high in polyphenols--some claim as much as 30x more potent than vitamin C or E and 10x that of green tea, reduces blood pressure, reduces the formation of clots and is a formidable anti-cancer agent reducing the chance of DNA damage especially in the colon.
