Bai Hao Yin Zhen means white hair silver needle and describes the appearance of the dry tea buds. It is often called Silver Needle tea in the West. White tea can mean the category of tea, or it can mean a tea that is lightly colored. Like all historically famous teas, this designation refers to the highest picking grade of white tea, coupled with being produced from specified locations. This style of tea often tastes light but exuberant, mellow but substantial with notes of sun-soaked cotton.
