Still don’t get it how 2 different white silver needle teas can be so totally different. Miiiiles away…
It was a lesson for me tho. Never order big amount of tea without trying it first. Even if it seams really affordable. And beware of eBay – it can surprise u in both good and bad way ;)

It is drinkable but i wouldnt buy this one again…

Preparation
160 °F / 71 °C 6 min, 30 sec

i guess once you find one good seller, or at least a re-seller of known (to you) teas

Looks like it’s time to go visit the “what to do with bad tea or spent tea” Discussion. :( So sorry!

malomorgen

well i usually mix it up with something else what makes it better. in this case i like silver needle – oolong combo… the good side bout that purchase is that the tea came in a very pretty package. like a big idk carton somthing tube with chinese ornaments. i’ll take a photo sometime… so i’d pay atleast half of the price for that tin thing only….

I’m so glad that there’s a bright side to this :) I’ll look forward to seeing the pretty tin!

Bio

born with a bit of a restless, curious and exploring spirit ;) love to travel and i do it a lot lately. enjoy good food and drinks. love trying out new stuff. just about to start exploring the world of teas and i’m really enthusiastic about it ;)

EDIT 4 months later:
still a n00b here but starting to get it ;) i try to buy loose tea but i got a lot of teabags too cuz it’s easier to find here. from not liking black tea ended up love it. green can be quite good too but waiting for more real ones to try. whites are sometimes awesome, sometimes not, rooibos and fruity blends are a good replacement for juices… and so on… still excited about every new tea… loving it more every day :D

since my favorite hobby is photography i take photos whenever something is interesting. including my tea making process…
