Darjeeling Special Spring Silver Needle White Tea

description

The Darjeeling silver needle white tea is in a class of its own. It’s a tea to be tried, to fully understand and appreciate its nuances. Here, we have one of the finest silver needles of the season. It’s wonderfully representative of this type of teas - lightly floral, a bit creamy and smooth textured.

The best smelling tea you'll ever try

Mindblowing scent! The first time I opened the pack, it hit my nose with its malty creaminess and I was in love. The scent doesn't fade post brewing and stays right till the end. I've oversteeped this but its never gone bitter. Towards later cups, I've detected floral notes to the scent. I'm sure this one will make any person neutral to beverages, a tea-lover.

Truly extraordinary

Upon first opening the bag, I was overwhelmed by the sweet, fresh aroma. It was like a bouquet of flowers, and a touch of vanilla. I couldn't stop smelling it, because it was just so wonderful. Once steeped, I was even more enamored. The flavor is subtle but incredibly fresh and clean. It is both delicate and full, flowery and earthy at the same time. A very special tea indeed!

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.

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

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.
