This one of those teas that if you are not REALLY into tea, you will simply not appreciate it at all. A very mellow light, yet nutty savory sweetness. The leaves have a slight nutty smell and it becomes more apparent while steeping them. The liquid is incredibly light color, almost clear. But within its subtlety hides complexity of flavors (sweetness almost like a melon but hidden behind its most apparent nuttiness a slight vegetal taste).
It is not your common silver needle with sweetness as the star but rather a tea to enjoy because of its craftsmanship and apparent purity. A must try for people for white tea lovers; a cup to avoid if you like bold tea.
