A delicate tea with a touch of earthiness and a touch of sweetness. It has a really smooth mouthfeel and re-steeps well.

Silver needle white teas are slowly growing on me as my tea palate develops. I use to think white teas in general had very little flavor. Now, I am able to pick up on the flavors and recognize and know how the tea is supposed to taste.

The dry leaves smell really nice. Slightly fruity, slightly sweet, with a hint of hay. The wet leaves tend to smell a bit more like wet hay. Not as appetizing.

But the good news is that brewed up, this tea retains more of the qualities you get from the dry leaf. Slightly sweet, minimal hay flavor. While this tea isn’t something that pops and demands your attention, it IS a very smooth and tasty drinker. I found myself drinking this way faster than I do most teas. And not because I wanted to be rid of it either. This is a tea I could absentmindedly drink all day and be very satisfied. A good daily drinker.

This is a very mild tasting white tea with a minimum of bitterness and astringency. It’s a little lacking in both depth and flavor. It does have a certain natural sweetness to it.

I brewed this one time in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 5 tsp leaf and 185 degree water for 3 minutes.
