This is a pretty darn good jasmine silver needle! I actually let it steep for nearly 8mins (3mins more than the recommended max). I was scared this wasn’t going to taste good since I did that, BUT it actually was…it had a “chewy” kind of taste to it which gave it more of a personality to me. I taste the vegetal taste of the white tea very clearly with the jasmine lingering lightly in the background letting itself known. This is a very nice tea that I was able to try thanks to LiberTEAS.
Also, now that it has cooled off quite a bit it has a subtle sweetness to it and the chewyness is subsiding. Still yummy, if not better than right out of the tea pot!
