This was a bit of a disappointment.
I bought a 50 g bag, first the provider from the city where I bought it from, I guess he didn’t know how to pack tea as he used the smallest bag and crunched the tea the bag was about to explode.
I thought ok, I can still work with it as it was my first time buying silver needle and wanted to have an introduction to it. I opened the bag and started inspecting the tea. Some of the tea leaves looked like they’ve been roasted as some of them were black, I decided to make my first steep and used 3 g for 300 ml. Used an 80 C water and steeped for 3 min.
The tea tasted okayishhhhh…. but nothing out of the extraordinary. My second steep was disappointing as the tea became astringent and started tasting bitter.
Overall no I won’t buy this again or better said not from the provider from my city as I know there might be a variation from city to city. Probably will try ordering some of it online I might have better luck but for now, it’s a no for me.
