drank Silver Needle by Teavana
81 tasting notes

If anybody by now has not tried silver needles from a teavana I suggest do so! Its a great intro to White Tea 101 for anyone who willing to buy quality leaves at fair prices, and love purity in taste. Not a whole lot of frills, complex flavors, or the kitchen sink, its simply a grassy/ slightly hay-ish taste much like green tea. A nuttiness can also be found based from its primary flavor which are quite related to one another adding a tad bit of starchiness. There is quite a chocolaty aftertaste at the end of the tongue, a bittersweet sensation that beckons a dear drinker for more tea. Just my kind of tea!

I found Silver Needle from Teavana and Rishi to be more sweet and less hay-ish than from other companies like H&S. I enjoy the ones from Teavana and Rishi better because of that. Definitely a good tea regardless!

It is isn’t it? I never actually bought white teas by the bulk but instead have to deal with samplers and bagged white teas that satisfy my occasional urge. Its nice to have some sinful indulgence sometimes and say it’s worth the costs with best leaves in planet! Much love to devotion and effort of farmers!

Bio

I’m a tea lover and a traveler. I believe in delving into cultures and cuisines. In so doing, I have found tea to be the most exciting and adventurous beverage in the world that has played a role in history and in the lives of many. Now that’s a shrub isn’t it!
Note: I may be a purist at times where some teas needs to be enjoyed naturally, yet I do enjoy many other teas that find its way into my palate!

Favorite Teas: Yunnan teas, the staple Assam and some Darjeeling, love Japanese greens, and “indie” teas either home grown or unfamiliar regions i.e. Turkey, Georgia, love Tisanes, Oolongs, some white teas, and my favorite staple: Chai teas.
