This is an ok silver needle, but then again my sampler has been sitting around for ages, so time has probably taken a good amount of the flavor that should be there. It’s still drinkable enough to finish out the tin, but I probably won’t go crazy on the re-steepings.

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 7 min, 0 sec
Cofftea

If the flavor is weak, make sure you’re using enough leaf. I think that’s why some people don’t care for whites. I know they suggest 1tsp, but I use 2.25g/6oz. Just out of curiosity, I measured one of their whites (may or may not have been this one) and was shocked that 2.25 was actually over 1TB since the leaves don’t fit well in a measuring spoon.

I love tea, but hate jasmine and melon, and am always looking to try something new — which is why my tea collection is out of control!
