From China Gifts (eBay store)

‘Bai Hao Yin Zhen’ is born in Yunnan Province, the origin of chinese tea. Note the “bai hao” (white hairs) on each quality bud; This particular Yunnan white tea holds a very graceful form. The leaves are even, strong, straight, and full with fine white hairs. The Bai Hao Yin Zhen is only made with buds, The liquor holds a light apricot color and the taste is fresh and delicate with a pleasent high fragrance. This tea is a very good daily tea.

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…

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….

Rabs

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