May. 29th, 2015
The aroma of the fluffy leaves is pretty mild, you really need to sniff hard to detect much of an aroma, but when you do there are notes of cucumbers, melons, and a hint of paper and sage.Read Full Review

Style: Darjeeling White Tea – Region: Darjeeling, India97 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5

The aroma of the leaves is nothing short of bright and brisk! Like someone mixed up grapefruit peel, orange blossoms, wildflower honey, and lilies with a green broken vegetation undertone. It is really quite aromatic, and honestly kinda reminds me of my favorite soaps...not that this smells at all soapy, I just have a ...Read Full Review

sniffing the teabag I get notes of wildflowers, fresh hay, a bit of lettuce, and a tiny bit of fruitiness at the finish. This is one of the more delicate white teas I have sniffed, giving it a steeping brings out more of the honey and wildflower notes, it reminds me of a summer field in full bloom.Read Full Review

Style: White Tea – Region: Malawi90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 1st, 2015
The aroma of the little pearls is a zingy mix of cucumber, pepper, bok choy, lettuce, and a little bit of sweet hay at the finish. It borders on savory, but stays more in the refreshing and bright spectrum. It really smells like some delicious drink or even sandwich one would consume on a summer day when seeking someth...Read Full Review

The aroma is rather rich yet subtle, with sweet notes of plum, a touch of nuts, and of course sticks. It smells like plant matter, freshly broken sticks while walking in a forest, this tea smells like nature and reminds me of walks in the forest.Read Full Review

Style: White Tea – Region: Kenya100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 17th, 2014
Looking at the dry leaves, it doesn't look like a white, it looks like a fuzzy golden tea from Yunnan...sniffing the leaves it has the sweet corn notes of a Kenyan Silver Needle, the heady floral notes of an oolong, and the malty, sweet potato, and caramel notes of a golden Yunnan tea. It tastes just like the liquid sm...Read Full Review

Sep. 4th, 2014
he aroma of this particular silver needle is nothing short of mouthwatering, which is why I advise pouring the tea you wish to sniff out of the bag, don't want to ruin tea by drooling. It is incredibly sweet with notes of peaches and sweet corn, this transitions to floral notes that very much so brings to mind blooming...Read Full Review

Aug. 14th, 2014
The aroma is sweet, like a rich blend of muscatel and honey, in fact it reminds me a bit of honey wine (specifically the Grecian Honeyed Wine I used to make when I could imbibe in my younger days) with a nice finish of hay.Read Full Review
The taste, oh man, it is so sweet! I feel like I am drinking tea that tastes like mown hay, f...

The aroma of these adorable silver fuzzy leaves is like a field of wildflowers, there are notes of fresh vegetation, hay, flower nectar, and wildflowers. There are also notes of honey, sweet corn, and lettuce. Silver Needle is a complex yet delicate smelling pile of leaves, I have always enjoyed that about it.Read Full Review

The aroma is quite mild evoking fresh vegetation and early springtime with a hint of floral. Brewed the leaves have the aroma of minerals, vegetation, and sage. The liquid also has notes of sage and smells incredibly clean. Read Full Review

The aroma is crisp and clean with notes of cedar and pine with tones of pepper and sage. Once brewed the tea becomes more herbaceous with strong hints of sage and basil, there are notes of pine resin and sweetness of freshly tapped tree sap. Read Full Review
The tea's flavor reminds me of the way that a winter forest smells. It is ...
