From Teaopia

Silver Needle is made from only the White Tea buds, which are covered with fluffy silver hairs giving the tea its white appearance. Silver Needle is one of the highest quality White Teas available today as the buds are picked before they open in order to preserve their tenderness.

When steeped, the buds that make up this amazing tea become revealed. This tea is noted for its fresh aroma, mellow taste and brilliant golden brew. To experience the best results that this tea has to offer, try brewing it in a YiXing clay teapot.

Since Silver Needle is very high in antioxidants and low in caffeine it is the perfect choice for those who like to have a cup of tea before bed or for people sensitive to caffeine. Not only is this tea refreshing it is also good for the stomach, eyes and can also be used to dispel heat and inflammation. This variety of White Tea can be steeped up to three times while still providing a great taste.

I don’t remember much from this one, being that I consumed it in the midst of an “omg emergency at the office” moment.
Thankfully, I atleast had an opp to try it before stepping into said office, so I remember it tasting quite earthy in the way I always wished that pu’erhs to be (but just aren’t) with crisp white notes on top.
But then… as it cooled, a sweet honey note came out underneath that pretty much replaced that earthiness. It was almost a milk oolong honey.
Anyhow, that’s about all I remember. That, and thinking that it wasn’t much different from the white tea I tried not long ago. One of those teas I would have to try side by side to really suss out the difference.
I’m a little frustrated with this one! actually, in general today, with my teas.

Oooh, your tea note makes me want to consider ignoring poor customer service and going into the store for this one! Maybe I’ll try the shop at Mayfair Mall this time instead of on Fort St. …

hmmm the customer service here is pretty decent! I suppose it varies per location. Go for it, I say it’s worth it!! :)

Steeping this tea for about 45 seconds, I discerned a honey-like aroma with a similarly sweet, but weak, taste. I steeped for 60 seconds each for two subsequent steepings and it became astringent and bitter. On the fourth steeping, again at 60 seconds, it was nearly flavourless. I have tried it a number of times and have always been dissatisfied, finding it either bitter or watery, with no discoverable sweet spot.
