Delicate flavor. Straw/bamboo colored liquor. Refreshing taste with very subtle nutty and woody notes. Crisp finish if brewed for short times, but flavor develops a lot with longer infusions.
Makes a good light iced tea for hot days.
I like to use silver needles as an addition to other green or white teas in my collection to get a variety of unique flavors. This tea is subtle and mild enough that it pairs well with many other teas as well as most foods.
