Harvest time: March 25 – April 15, 2013

Taste: A subtle, slightly flowery, sweet, lingering taste

Brew: 2-3 teaspoons for 8oz of water. Brew at 176 ºF (80 ºC) for 1 to 2 minutes (exact time depends on your taste – a longer time will give the tea a stronger taste and color)

Health Benefits: Silver Needle White Tea gives you the greatest health benefits of all White Tea’s. Composed of only unopened, fresh leaf buds, none of the beneficial antioxidants and minerals in this tea have yet had a chance to used by the plant to convert to chlorophyll or other parts of an opened leaf’s structure. As a result TeaVivre’s Silver Needle tea has the highest quantity of beneficial ingredients.

I don’t have a lot to say about this one, it’s good and light. I haven’t drank a lot of silver needle teas but I feel like this one is a good example of what it should taste like.

My favorite white! Love to watch the beautiful tea leaves dance as they steep. A sweet, light but distinct flavor that one does not tire of. An excellent tea for everyday! A little more pricey but well worth it

Thanks to Teavivre for the generous samples, much appreciated. This was a mild silver needle. Pleasantly buttery, with hay/grass and cucumber notes most apparent. Following recommended steeping with 1 1/2 tsp its flavor was quite subtle, so next time I will try it with 2 tsp.

A very good silver needle. It is buttery, peppery and very elegant and fragile. I really like this tea. This is a tea for special occasions or when you simply want to splurge like a fine scott or brandy. Its organic to boot so kiddos to Teavivre on this fine tea.
Simply put if you like silver needles you will love this.
