If your new to silver needle, you shouldn’t start with this one. Go with the Yunnan or the Imperial Fujian silver needles

I agree with Logan, something in the processing of this batch went wrong. I have bought tea from. Tealyra for nearly a year now, and in every Oder I place every couple of months I always ordered this silver needle, because it was really good, nuanced had all the notes you’d expect from a good Fuding silver needle, the mouthfeel and texture were exceptional, and the picking themselves looked amazing, just like the picture for this tea. However after they got this new batch everything changed. The picking look very small, have less layers inside them than the less expensive Pai Mu Tan or the White Cui Mei. Not only that, all the notes it used to have are either gone or toned done. There’s an overwhelming smell of like dusty clay and mud, very unpleasant, and the mouthfeel is sour, bitter and excessively astringent. I wouldn’t recommend trying it, in my experience you should go for the White Cui Mei for less than half the price, yet 10 times the quality

As someone mentioned, smells and tastes like green tea. Does not have the sweet vanilla aroma undertone you would expect from white tea. Also has very weak overall flavor, you have to use a lot of leaves and hotter water to get anything out of it. Overall, I am disappointed. I guess you get what you pay for as this is way cheaper than any other "white tea" you could find.

I love Silver Needle tea. It is my fav! This is good quality tea. I drink it all day in the winter and in the mornings in summer. This is the best tea ever!
