I’ve been meaning to review this tea for quite some time. A staple in my weekly lineup, Octavia’s 100% Organic Silver Needle is a very earthy, sweet, and refreshing tea. The leaves are exquisite with a robust nectar/honey scent and the distinct “fuzzy” profile. They seem to have been packaged perfectly with only a trace of broken leaves. After brewing for about 4-5 minutes, the tea lived up to its description with a natural mellow/sweet finish and a touch of earthiness. Although its not the best Silver Needle I have brewed, it’s definitely worth checking out.

I’ve been watching Octavia for a while because, and I know that this is completely shallow of me, I like their tins. How do they compare to other companies you’ve tried?

I usually stick to tea by Upton Imports or Itoen, but for a fairly commercialized brand, this tea doesn’t fall too far behind the others. The quality and taste seem to match up fairly well.
