About Silver Needle
from Adagio Teas
from Shanti Tea
As buds are highest in caffeine among the parts of the tea plant, this tea tends to be high in caffeine. Some retailers mistakenly claim that this tea is low in caffeine because it is a white tea. White teas are not necessarily lower in caffeine and no generalizations can be made about caffeine content of a tea based on whether it is green, white, or black.
Another tea, Junshan yinzhen, is also referred to as "silver needle". Junshan yinzhen is a yellow tea that is similar in many respects to bai hao yinzhen.
