I really loved this tea. This was part of a Sampler Pack of four White Teas and this was definitely my favorite. The Silver Needles and Snowbud was far too delicate for my sensibilities—I could barely distinguish it from hot water. My Aunt dubbed it “dirty water tea” for it’s color and lack of taste. The Silver Needle Jasmine overachieved in flavor—all I could taste was the jasmine—it was like drinking perfume. It had a “buttery” complex taste, crisp but lovely and full bodied, sweeter and less delicate and more flavorful than Silver Needle. I later tried White Peony from TeaSource. They’re very similar in taste, but I’d give the Adagio White Symphony a slight edge. I wonder if it’s the equivalent of “Silver Peony” on TeaSource?
