I had a small sampler of this acquired back in 2018 from Meowster’s cupboard de-stash (Thanks, Meowster!) and I imagine the age of the tea is older than that. I decided to coldbrew the entire 6g sampler overnight.

I don’t think I’ve ever coldbrewed a silver needle tea, but this is delicious! It has a strong citrus flavor, like lemon in mineral water, as well as a florality that reads a bit like the peppery-floral taste of crysanthemum and a sweeter pollen-floral taste. Very refreshing!

Medium musty, more green than a white and less green than a green. It has a slight savory green-yellow in the back of the throat.

A sweetness in the noise that is very faint at the end of the swallow.

The finish is strong and throughout the mouth.

I’m only a little above so-so on this. Am gonna have a coupla more cups to see what happens over them.

On drinking more, there is also something a little zingy of to the upper right, diagonally, of the mouth.

But yeah, I’m meh on this one. But think others may dig it.
