Feb. 7th, 2012

I really like this tea. I like dark and strong white teas. I didn't think much of it at first, but I started drinking it all the time because it's convenient. It doesn't take long to get really strong, and it's not bitter at all, which I like. Now it has grown on me, and I never get tired of it. I drink it with cream a...

Jan. 29th, 2012

I wasn't sure what to expect as this was the first white tea that I've sampled, but I was definitely satisfied!

The first time that it was brewed it had a mild taste and a strong scent. After being brewed a second time, with the same leaves, the tea had a stronger taste but was less aromatic. I enjoyed this becaus...

Dec. 29th, 2011

I'm very naive when it comes to white teas and prefer stronger blends myself. Even I can clearly tell this is a quality tea, very smooth and light 'clean' taste with a tad touch of grassiness. Sugar would likely kill it as it's naturally sweet on its own. Uplifting and refreshing, just not something I'd drink normally ...

Kenya Silverback White from Imperial Tea Garden

Style: Silver Needle – Region: Kenya

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 7th, 2011

Leaf looks like a silver needle white tea with leaves on the smallish side, but with a much deeper golden yellow color.

Brewed, the aroma is very unlike other silver needle teas, and much stronger. Aroma is predominately toasty, nutty and woody, strongly reminiscent of hojicha, especially roasted kukicha, with a to...

This was the first white tea I have sampled not only from Kenya, but from any African country. I was eager to try it, and I was not disappointed.

The dry leaf of this tea looks a lot like silver needle white teas, consisting exclusively out of buds / tips. However, the brewed cup was darker in color, and the flavo...

Very affordable for a white tea.

Aroma is slightly herbaceous, with a suggestion of caramel, coffee grounds, and a slight smokiness. Overall character is warm and rich.

Too much astringency and bitterness for my tastes; I wonder however if I brewed it with water that was too hot. I only brewed this tea once.

I got this at Trader Joe's last month. It's relatively weak so you'll need two bags in an 8-ounce cup and steep it for four-to-five minutes. Tastes a bit metallic but has a post-infusion aroma that is very pleasant. This tea is nothing special so I use it for blending. Good price, though!

This Foojoy Shoumei has similar color to their Bai Mudan. The aroma is milder in the Shoumei, and has a hint of fruit. The taste of the Shoumei is also milder than that of their Bai Mudan, but very smooth and with a hint of sweetness. Overall, though, these teas are very similar. This is perhaps the milder and slightly...

Sep. 27th, 2011

I'm not a big fan of the silver needle style of tea, but I am beginning to distinguish between different ones to a degree.

From looking at the leaf, this is unambiguously a silver needle tea, but interestingly, the aroma of the brewed tea is much more like white peony tea. The appearance of the leaf, both dry and b...

Sep. 27th, 2011

I want to preface this review by saying that I tend not to be a huge fan of silver needle tea in general; I prefer darker, more full-bodied white teas. I tend to always think that silver needle is overpriced.

Silvery-white leaves brew a darkish colored cup, especially dark for a silver needle. Used leaves show a p...

This tea has a nice dusty flavor. It's a little weak for my taste, but if I brew it for long enough it's good. I added cream and sugar.

Sep. 19th, 2011

Brews a dark color for a silver needle, but the flavor profile is more like what I'd expect for a silver needle.

Aroma is mellow, mostly vegetal, slightly floral but only weakly so. Sweet, no bitterness. I used a very long steep time (>10 min.) and it had only a little astringency.

This is not my favorite style...

Not what I expected, and actually, far exceeding any expectations I had! This is my favorite Pai Mu Tan sampled yet, and is far out ahead of any of the other contenders.

I had this as a sample in a tea sachet. The sachet contains the same tea that is sold as loose-leaf. I will note that the sachet was very large,...

Sep. 11th, 2011

I was expecting this tea to be too weak for my taste, but it actually had a good amount of flavor. I'm not the best judge of gourmet teas, though, but I've started liking white teas more. The silver needle doesn't have as much of the tangy flavor of other white teas I've tasted.

After enjoying a number of teas I have sampled from Imperial Tea Garden, this tea disappointed me.

The dry leaf is somewhat interesting looking.

You need to use quite a lot of leaf, however, to bring out much flavor. But even using much more leaf than I normally would, it's still bland. I recommend brewing with...

This tea is really good. I drink it practically every day, and I like it better now than I did before. It brews really dark for a white tea. I only had to brew it for a couple of minutes, and with other white teas it takes me a lot longer to get enough flavor out of them. This one has a strong flavor that I like. It's ...

This was an interesting tea, recognizable as white tea, and more like Silver Needle in style than any other style of white tea, but still unlike any other white teas I've tried. I've tried brewing this tea several different ways.

With a briefer infusion and lower-temperature water, it brews a pale amber with a slig...

The aroma of this tea is a bit mild and slightly floral. The aroma and taste are both delicate and refreshing, and a bit toasty. This Bai Mudan has no bitterness or astringency, and is quite full and smooth, with some subtle sweetness. Much better than supermarket white teas, to be sure. From the first cup, I like this...

Produces an amber brew with a light, floral aroma, and underlying tones of caramel and autumn leaves. There's also a noticeable fishy quality to the aroma, however, which I find unpleasant. Flavor is surprisingly metallic, although not necessarily in a bad way. Clear, clean, a bit crisp.

I recommend a longer stee...

Brews an amber color. Trader Joe's recommends brewing 1-2 minutes and then discarding. I brewed 5 as I like a stronger cup. The tea was not too strong for me--still milder than many greens or blacks.

Not terribly aromatic, but flavorful. Aroma is like a bai mu dan, but much weaker: mostly of soft grain, with a h...

Alex and I had very different experiences with this tea.I was only able to brew this once and I did so, following Gingko's instructions of water just off the boil, for about 1.5 minutes. I was totally surprised that the liquor was so dark, it looked like black tea, The aroma was on the nutty/vegetal end , with a slig...

Among my least favorite bagged teas that I've tried. Aroma very weak: vaguely floral and then dissipating into a stale, tea-like aroma. Pale cup has a muddled flavor, with a little bitterness and more astringency than I'd like, and a little sourness too. I would not drink this again.

My advice is to stick to Twin...

This is a strange tea that requires proper brewing if you want to appreciate it. It's not even remotely like any other white tea I've ever tried.

I received a generous amount of sample of this tea from Life in Teacup. I experimented brewing three different ways, using many infusions, starting at 1-minute and gett...
