'''Baihao Yinzhen''' ([[wiktionary:白|白]][[wiktionary:毫|毫]][[wiktionary:銀|銀]][[wiktionary:針|針]] | [[wiktionary:白|白]][[wiktionary:毫|毫]][[wiktionary:银|银]][[wiktionary:针|针]]), also known as '''White Hair Silver Needle''', is a [[white tea]] produced in Fujian Province in China and is one of [[China Famous Tea]]s. Amongst [[white tea]]s, this is the most expensive variety, as only top buds (leaf shoots) are used to produce the tea. Genuine Silver Needles are made from cultivars of the ''Da Bai'' (Large White) tea variety. There are many [[green tea]]s sold as Baihao Yinzhen but as green teas they taste different than genuine white tea Silver Needle.<ref>The Tea Guardian [ lightly oxidized: white teas: silver needles]</ref>
