So my tea shipment seems to be delayed, and therefore I ran out and got some more Silver Needle from a different source (does this mean I’m addicted?)

Based on what I could determine this appears to be a different tea than the Silver Needle Premium from Rishi, so I’ve added it to the list for Steepster.

Two mounded tablespoon’s and about 12 ounces of water steeped for 2 minutes. This one is slightly more colorful when steeped than Adagio’s Silver Needle, smell here is more hay than Adagio’s I believe.

Wow work got me interrupted there, where was I…

Ahh I am now on the second steeping of the Rishi Silver Needle. The second steeping smells more floral than the first but I did steep it 2:30 instead of just 2:00 of my first. The taste of this has a hint more flower to it than Adagio’s and seems slightly less complex. On first impressions I’m going to have to say I prefer the Adagio to the Rishi. However I really should try steeping them both so I can try them almost simultaneously.

With how well this came out on the second steeping I may have to try three and that is where Adagio’s Silver Needle seemed to “give out” in my mind. When I get my tea shipment I will brew two cups one of each and try them both to truly contrast them.

However since my first impression is that I prefer the adagio, I currently have given them the higher rating here. Another tea that goes in the “Needs further experimentation section” of my cabinet.

This is like the literal definition of ‘pretty’. Sweet, crisp, dry, floral. I absolutely love it.

Great tea with a light flavor. Re-steeps without loss of flavor.
