Ciaqing Co-op, Zhenghe, Fujian, China

Young shoots picked by the Caiqing group shows much of the coveted downy white furs on the surface. Silver Needles is known for its high levels of antioxidants, concentrated in the needle-like young buds.

This particular offering is slightly hardier than its predecessor, largely due to warmer weather. The surprise element is the slightly smoky aftertaste just as the sweetness begins to dissipate.

Dry leaves: light green needle-like shoots, covered with white downy fur
Taste: sweet pear with a hint of smoke on the aftertaste
Process: organically grown, withered and baked
