This was included in a White Tea sample pack gifted me by a friend who was trying to turn me on to loose-leaf tea. It may be because I’m so new to teas, but I found this tea, often described as “subtle” far too mild for my tastes. I could barely distinguish this from hot water. Drinkable, but not something I’d like to try again. I liked the White Symphony in the sample pack much more, and later tried White Peony and found I also prefer it to Silver Needle.
