First impression is very much like a high grade silver needle. But the leaf look more like a mao-cha, curly and twisted. The tea is matured from 2008.
Taste is like that of a good silver needle. maybe a bit sharper. Very full taste, with a long fresh aftertaste. Aftertaste reminds me of a lemony black tea. A darjeeling perhaps. VERY nice!
Will have to look around for more matured silver needle.
