From Thistea

Fuding Silver Needle White Tea is a first flush pure bud pick, harvested in April and then expertly processed into this elegant white tea!

Tasting Notes of Silver Needle:
Brews up a fruity sweet tea with a slight floral taste. Nice mouth-feel and surprisingly a smooth velvety finish and easy-to-drink texture.

Scent of Dry leaf: dry and sligt tabacco(what you would expect from a silver needle) Appearance and scent of wet leaf: this has me confused, it smells sweet but i cant identify similarities with another thing, closes to cane sugar i will say Brewing method/time/temp: 1 st infusion i did 195 35 seconds. But second infusion i did 212 35 seconds. Taste- slightly sweet for first i fusion. More sweet the second infusion

After this, altough it was a good tea, i decided to put in a tall glass and see how it does grampa style(which is how i have been doing white needles in the past) Once you do this you can see all the little tea hairs separate and swim around, which is really relly relaxing. Taste- whith this it will vary since its less precise, my first cup was a lot more alive than the teapot generated, it is still sweet, but it also has slightly black peper spicy notes. Silver needles really is something special, i love it.

Overall, i recomemd this tea, is great

I kept drinking after writing the review and the longer it is in the water the creamier it gets, this is actually amazing.

Flavors: Creamy, Sweet
