Review of Organic White Silver Needle

6 of 104 of 53 of 567 of 100

I am a huge fan of silver needle tea, but this one was sadly disappointing. The aroma of the dry leaves is wonderfully sweet and floral. The aroma of the steeped tea, however, is almost nonexistent. The taste of the tea is as expected for a silver needle. There are notes of flowers, sweet grass, and honey. However, I found this version from Upton lacking in the complexity and sweetness I enjoy in silver needle. Yes, it tasted "correct," but I was left wanting just a little bit more. A little more honey. A little more floral notes. Overall a decent choice if you are already ordering from Upton (as I was), but I would personally recommend Teavivre's silver needle. I think their's is my favorite.
