This tea has me mystified. The first steeping was very delicate. I followed the directions for a 1-2 minute steep and let it go for 2 minutes. I used the whole sample bag. The tea is visually stunning and very fresh as it seems all of Teavivre products are. I somehow expected this tea to weaken after 2 or 3 steeps. It did not. It got better. It got to the point where I was leaving it to steep in the Gaiwan for 5 or more minutes. Each different timing yielded a cup of wonder and enjoyment. My experience with white tea is limited. What I do know is what I love. I loved this. I love the delicate flavor and the way that this tea made me feel. This was tonights late night tea. I wonder how it would be in the afternoon? Also I noticed on the expiration it says “permanent preservation”. Interesting. This is another tea that I will be purchasing.

Silver needle and “peony” white teas are just fantastic for providing long series of steeps.

I was never of fan of white tea until I tried this….

The trouble I find is that so much white tea gets used for flavors and blends. But if you can find unadulterated needles, or peony (bai mudan), they have a lot to offer.

I prefer peony to needles, myself, but both have their place.

It would be a sin to flavor this tea…
