Darjeeling Special Spring Silver Needle White Tea

description

The silver needle is the finest white tea grade in the world made only from unopened buds. The buds are plucked and then simply withered and air-dried so that they retain their delicate flavors. This time around, our master blenders have come up with this blend made of the finest Darjeeling silver needles of the year. It's a soft and flavorful cup, brimming with sweet floral notes the hallmark attribute of a high-quality white tea.

Great, smooth, and very drinkable

I haven't had a ton of white teas, but if they are all like this I will have to try more! It's very pleasant, light, and slightly citrus-y. Highly recommend.

This tea is confident in itself

Likes : Smooth Body, High Quality.

Best Served : Anytime, Evening.

A white tea that stands up well on its own. It is light and has that slight vegetal taste found in green teas, yet the slight notes of sweet and floral will have you constantly leaning into it, trying to listen to its secrets. Throughout the experience it remains calm and pleasant. Despite the lightness, it will hold its own even if you add honey, sugar, or lemon. But these only need to be added if you are having a craving for those things - this tea is just fine by itself.

Very smooth white tea

This white tea is absolutely delicious. It has very pretty pale colored needles, and a smooth, mild tropical taste. Surprisingly good with a little honey too (which I would never have thought to add to such a delicate white tea).

Makes a great Evening Tea

Likes : Freshness, Great Aroma, High Quality, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Anytime.

White tea, known for it's lowest caffeine level and highest on polyphenol levels is the healthiest of all teas. This citrusy flavoured tea is very tasty and makes it tempting to consume multiple times a day, although best to have after a day's work for rejuvenation in the evening.
