This is a really good silver needle: sweet and with a strong flavor, that is to say, stronger than I would have expected from a typical silver needle. The leaves were soft and fluffy. There are flavors of hay and of grass, these are soft flavors that mingle with the sweetness. A very lovely white tea.
