This is my first impression of my first ever silver needle. I enjoyed the aroma of the infused leaf, in which I detected a hint of pine. The tea was good for several steepings in a porcelain gaiwan. I detected a slight grassiness (not unpleasant) in the first few steepings. Thereafter, the natural sweetness became more pronounced and the pleasant aftertaste more pronounced.
