Considered a great delicacy, this tea is made from a harvest of fine picking in which only the buds are taken.

White Pekoe Silver Needle is called silver needle or white tip for short. The finished product is famous for being white like silver and straight like a needle. The picking is under the "10 No Picking": not in rainy day, no dew, no thin bud, no purple bud, no wind- damaged, no human-damaged, no insect-damaged, no open bud, no hollow bud and no sick bud.
