220 tasting notes

Woah, this was so interesting straight after trying the white peony! In comparison its a much lighter and sweeter tea, with a greenish way about it – reminiscent of a Japanese sencha. So if you are the kind of person that gets down to green tea or 60s girl groups, you will enjoy Silver Needle for sure.

ETA: On the second steep, the flavour is stronger, sharper and leafier – I’m, not sure I like it!
