Nice tea. You need to be sparing in order to not overdo flavor.

This is my tea for the week. I haven’t had a silver needle i didn’t like.
And like in music or cinema i try to find positive in everything i encounter.
It was no challenge to find the positive in this tea. The dry leaves have a an earthy and refreshing nose. And of course when liquid, it is very enjoyable. (subtle yet powerful)
I agree with others, you can steep this stuff hard and it’s still very pleasant. Thanks rishi!
I’m grateful that teas like this are available in stores.
I am brewing this exact tea while typing this. Cooled the water down till around 75c or about 170F. The leaves are a bit smaller then I am used to with most silver needle. Let it brew for 2 min. Slightly a little dry, but still with that soothing sweet after taste. For the price it is not bad at all. I think the water for the Rishi variety could have been hotter, like 175-180.
