  • “Silver Needle tends to be just that bit too delicate for me, but every so often I take another shot at it. The result is the same again this time: too delicate and too dull for my tastes.” Read full tasting note

From Teas.com.au

Carefully picked from tea plantation in FuJian, the city well known for tea production, Silver Needle makes a light cup for the tea connoisseur.

Brewed with patience, this rare unfermented tea will display upright leaves in your cup with a fine coat of white hair on unopened leaves.
With a velvety texture, it is one of the “Ten Best Tea in China”. In Chinese medicine, Silver Needle can be drunk to reduce internal bodily heat. Researches suggest as it"s the least processed kind of tea, it has the highest amount of antioxidants.

Ingredients: White tea (Camellia Sinensis). Fresh 2009 crop.

Silver Needle tends to be just that bit too delicate for me, but every so often I take another shot at it. The result is the same again this time: too delicate and too dull for my tastes.

Yay! I’m glad I’m not the only one that can’t get behind SN. I think I should like it so I keep trying it but it just never works out.

Luthien

Yeah. I feel as though I am failing here, but I just don’t get the specialness of Silver Needle. I much prefer Pai Mu Tan, which is a lot more robust, still tastes good if you leave it steeping too long, and costs a whole lot less.
