drank Silver Yin Zhen Pearls by Teavana
33 tasting notes

This was my first white tea purchase and Teavana purchase. The salesperson really raved about it so I bought some, enough for me and the tea swap members.
It was really fun to watch the pearls unfurl. The tea leaves get quite large. The aroma was very mild, maybe a subtle vegetal note. The liquor was a pale straw color. The first steeping I didn’t notice any floral or sweetness and it had a powdery astringency.
The second steeping was much more pleasant with a light floral note and less astringency. I added a bit of raw sugar and this amplified the floral taste.
I didn’t have time for a third steeping but I have some of this tea left for another day.
