Chinese Emperor Huizong was said to be so obsessed with Silver Needle tea that he failed to stop a Mongol invasion. We've given this irresistible tea the number 52 – Huizong's age when he died.


The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.

Store in a sealed jar or tin, such as our Fill-Me-Up Tea Caddies.
