I had to try this twice before making a note.

This is by far the most interesting of all the teas in Adagio’s Silver Sampler, in my opinion. It’s Sliver Needle’s polar opposite, with a strong (for a white tea, that is) extremely multifaceted flavor. It still holds the floral and vegetal taste that characterizes white tea, but I’m actually sensing a more emphasized, earthy, floral taste and aroma with a sweet vegetal flavor as an aftertaste rather than the reverse.

This really is a gorgeous white tea and if I had to choose out of the Silver Sampler, I’d like to have this and Jasmine Silver needle stocked in my cupboard regularly, with Silver Needle as a rare treat every now and again. I may give Snowbud another chance, but for now it is the least memorable of the teas.

Final Verdict: This is good. Really good.

I’m not one for introductions…

I’m a studying musicologist, cellist, and sometimes I’ll sketch a thing or two.

Tea and I first met in the form of a stale Chamomile bag on a cold and dreary night. It was a humble (not to mention tasteless) beginning, but it was a beginning nonetheless.

My affinity for the Victorian tradition of tea lead me to Twinnings which then led me to Teavana, which led me to perhaps my most favorite (living) musician. Yes… well, it’s not really a logical story…

Anyways, I’m here now, realizing that there’s way more to tea than I’d ever knew, and more than I’ll probably ever know.

Meet you all at 4 o’Clock…
