I’ve never had a Silver Needles that has a bouquet such as this. Amazing!

Malty, earthy, smooth and even creamy. This is a great tea.

Light White tea, floral notes, with only a slight tinge of bitterness that is enjoyable. Leaves the mouth with the sensation of fresh rain.

A pretty mild white tea when made at the recommended temperature and time for a white tea. I had three variations of it in which the water was hotter or it steeped longer and none of them were as smooth and pleasant but each had and increasingly sweeter, more honey-like aftertaste.

Flavors: Floral

Preparation
185 °F / 85 °C 3 min, 45 sec

I don’t think I’ve had a tea this smooth yet full of simple flavor. Granted I haven’t had a lot of different Silver Needles but I’m in love.

There are a few Valerian based teas out there but this is the only one I’ve found that I actually enjoy versus taking like medicine.

I have over 15 Silver Needles so my friends and I did a taste test. This one won by 6 out of 8 votes… An amazing tea.

Valerian really works for me and this is the only tea I’ve ever found that makes it taste great. It’s not as spicy as I thought for having the name “chai” but I love it anyway.

This tea is a life saver. I’ve tried so many methods to try and sleep naturally. This is the only thing that works. Plus it tastes great

Tasted really medicinal to me. I tried it several times, different steeping times, and really tried to give this one a chance. Even steeped several times it still wasn’t my taste. The flavor was much stronger then I like even with lesser amount. Some part of the ingredients gave it a medicinal smell and flavor. I ended up giving this to another tea lover, hopefully it’s something they like. Hate to waste it as it’s quite expensive tea.

Very smooth and drinkable, but doesn’t have much in the flavor department. Typical leafiness and a bit of butter on the tongue. Having some right now, notice that the astringency is fairly low, but has a nice bite at the end. Was surprised the reviews were so overwhelmingly for it, however, as I have had much nicer teas.

Flavors: Butter, Grass

Looking for a tasty puer blend? This one is up there. Not as good as Lupicia’s puer blend, but this Marmalade Puerh blend is better than Adagios and many others I’ve tried.

It is zesty, tangy citrus, just like a rindy marmalade, candied orange notes, hint of sweet licorice, with an earthy background of puer. The puer isn’t funky and the licorice is really subtle.

However, this is provided you steeped it well – this tea is fussy to brew. It weighs a lot, and if you overleaf you will get something too licorice and sludgy. Best is 6 grams, 10oz water, 3 minutes. No rinse.

A friend at work turned me on to Monkey Paw and I miss it every time I try something else. This is my tea!
I love that it’s organic too

Did you order from them offline?? I placed an order with them but they never sent me a shipping conformation nor did they respond to my e-mail, so i’m a little worried. How long did it take for your tea to arrive?? Thanks — Jim

Hands down the best Silver Needle I’ve ever tasted.
