Yunnan silver needles

White and yellow teas are among the most subtle.

i like hojo's yinzhens

he has two: a normal one and a cheaper 'gushu' one. the claim is that the 'gushu' one is semi-wild, traditional farming practices

I got some from Norbu a long time ago that was lovely, but it's not something I've seen since there, and I did encounter some really harsh teas when searching for more of the same after he stopped carrying it. Hit or miss, and mostly miss.
