This is a jem I got from the Travelling Teabox when it stopped at my house back in the summer. This particular tea looks very similar to a Chinese Silver Needle with lovely, fuzzy, unbroken buds. They turn a beautiful silver colour when the water is poured over them too.

The flavour is quite unlike a silver needle white tea – this is sweet and fruity and very nectar-like. Beneath it there notes similar to to what I’ve tasted in some of the better-quality Ceylon black teas, although lighter and smoother in this case.

Preparation

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
