2 Doves silver needle is a premium tea bud only white tea from Fuding county in the province of Fujian, China. Legend tells of a tea grower named Fuding Da Hao and his family who were indebted to a local mercenary to provide protection for them. The mercenary gave the family one year to pay the debt or he would claim Fuding Da Hao's daughter. After a few weeks of praying both the grower and his wife had the same dream. A pair of doves would appear on a farm gate. The couple should follow the doves deep into the woods where they would find land with a variety of undiscovered wild tea. From these bushes they were to pluck only the downy white tips. If they processed these in a special new style they would make enough to save their daughter. The next morning Fuding Da Hao and his wife went to the gate followed the instructions and found their tea. Three days later after processing the tea, they went to market and in one day made enough to save their daughter. It is said the silvery white buds in 2 Doves resembles dove's wings.
