Silver needle is one of the Chinese “Ten Famous Tea”. It has a reputation of “gold jade”. Junshan Silver Needle originated in Junshan in Dongting Lake, Hunan, China. It is thin just like a needle, so, it is called silver needle. Tea area is surrounded by lake water, so it is covered by cloud all the year round, air is wet and soil layer is deep and fertile, which cultivate superior quality of silver needle.
Junshan is also called DongTing Mountain. Soil on the island is fertile; annual mean temperature is mild; average annual precipitation is 1340 mm; relative humidity is about 80% during March to September. In spring and summer, lake water evaporates, which makes bamboo and wood cluster on the island and suitable for tea tree growing.
