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!
