- White tea has the most antioxidants compared to any other tea

- Our silver Needle is grown on our award winning tea farm on Tai Mu Mountain
- The origin of Silver Needle is the North Fujian Province. True white tea such as silver needle, white peony and gong mei originated from this region.
Studies have shown that high quality white tea is the healthest tea, because it contains the most EGCG (catechins) and quercetin. Both have been studied extensively. Quercetin has been found to have powerful Anti-inflammatory properties.
Our tea is high quality not only because we dry our tea in small batches, but also because our tea farm is located at an altitude of 2700 feet with clean soil, pure spring mountain water, and a beautiful cloudy climate.
