drank Silver Needle by Adagio Teas
1904 tasting notes

These do look a bit like conifer needles, not pine, but maybe some sort of fir or spruce. They’re covered in a coat of silvery down which makes the leaves want to stick to each other – making getting a teaspoonful’s worth out of the tin a little difficult. When I added the water the silver down seemed to get washed away turing the leaves the traditional light green shade.

In scent and flavour it’s strongly reminisent of steamed asparagus in that it’s quite green and vegetal – but not in a harsh fashion. I like asparagus so it’s all good – Colin tells me it tastes aweful however. *eyeroll *

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
