these claims are made only by me - they are not made by Teavana or any of their employees. I had a bad headache one day while at work. I went to the local mall to get something to eat and perhaps something to soothe my head. I walked by a Teavana and stepped inside as the calmness of the store is usually a pleasant break in the day. I told the sales associate I had a monster headache and could she mix up something for me. She said she had just the thing and made this amazing tea with just a touch of sugar. Plain, no blend. It was so refreshing, so clear and clean. It was soothing, relaxing. I did something for the headache, but I believe this tea was instrumental in helping me feel better. Maybe it was that I sat quietly enjoying the taste, maybe there is something special to the antioxidant - I don't know what it was, but I went back and purchased 8ounces to take home. It is fantastic.

I bought this tea because it is the rarest in the world... It is absolutely the best white tea out there. However, I like my tea stronger, so I found this to be too weak for my taste. It does make great iced tea, but for the price I would not purchase again . . .

    Comments about Teavana Silver Needle White Tea:

    This is by Far the Best White tea I've had ... its hard to find white tea at regular stores. Not a Fan of white tea with other flavors like pomegranate or acai or other healthy fruits because all that is, is the flavor. I drink regular black tea , green tea and white tea. white tea is very subtle in flavor but that's what I'm looking for and this one has a very unique flavor ... don't usually buy tea at places like teavana but I love this one so I will buy more!

    Comments about Teavana Silver Needle White Tea:

    Silver needle white tea has always been something I was really interested in but never wanted to splurge the 17+$ for. However, the sales associate told me how the tea is more beneficial than just for conventional tea drinking, it's very healthy and rich in antioxidants so ofcourse I was sold.

    However, this tea gave me much more than just a relaxing evening. I drink tea mainly for my anxiety, to help me calm my thoughts and help me throughout the day. However, that night I drank the tea it was really something else. Immediately, I noticed how high quality this tea is. It really is beautiful and pure. You almost feel like you should be there in China drinking it alongside emperor, it's so luxurious. But then a sudden wash of calm ran through me, and a sense of well being. None of Teavana teas have ever quite given me this 'zen' feeling. And now I'm in love and drink this everynight. This tea also can be steeped many times, making the price more worth it. You can resteep this tea 3 times, so that means you're paying for 6 oz of tea, not two. This tea is very much worth every cent, and I recommend everyone buy this because it will do more than just give you something to drink at night.

      Comments about Teavana Silver Needle White Tea:

      I received this tea for a Christmas gift from my family. Immediately upon opening the bag, I was assailed with an aroma that was so enticing that I about drooled on myself. It was, in a word, beautiful. I think I was actually stunned a little bit at the unique floral scent. I was extremely anxious to try it. Upon my first brew, I knew I had found my most favorite tea. W.O.W! The taste is light, and induces a feeling of relaxation, beauty, and inspiration. I'm not a natural healer or doctor, but I would personally recommend this tea for highly creative people, people looking for self motivation, and people looking to heal internal doubts (self esteem, anxiety, depression, etc.) One cannot help but feel healthy and whole while drinking this tea. I would recommend 2-3 scoops of the rock sugar per brew. I have also used this as a bath soak, and it's wonderful.

        Comments about Teavana Silver Needle White Tea:

        I had stopped in at my local Teavana store at the mall to quench my thirst. I wanted some iced tea but I was having a hard time choosing a flavor. (as they are all very tasty and there are so many to choose from!) One of the girls recommended silver needle blended with one of the pineapple teas. It was something new and different so I decided to give it a try. She sweetened it for me and it was one of the most delicious iced teas I've ever had! It was so smooth with a nice fruity finish. The only downside was that I wish I had brought one of my tins with me so I could've taken some home with me. It was absolutely divine!

            This was one of the first high-end teas I tried and it is the one I find myself constantly restocking. I was hesitant to buy somewhat expensive teas, but this showed me what is to be gained from spending the money on quality. There is just something comforting about the gentle, smooth, almost sweet flavor of this tea. When I worked, I kept a tin of it at my desk and opted for it instead of the coffee my co-workers drank (mind you, I still love coffee!). My silver needle tin is never empty and I always recommend it to friends who are looking into getting something other than orange pekoe!

                I love this tea. I don't understand why people seem to be buying this thinking it's a strong flavorful tea. It's not. It's a tea for those who can appreciate a very gentle flavor. I like this tea when I have time to sit and appreciate it's subtlety. I enjoy mine with just a little bit of acacia honey. Perfection.

                  The soft, downy white buds are not only adorable but have a delicate flavor which is a great base for combining with other teas. But don't get me wrong, it is fantastic on it's own. I like to use about a half a teaspoon of German Rock Sugar in mine when I want to wind down after a long working day. Watch the temperature of your water otherwise your tea will tase bitter. I do not recommend exceeding the recommended water temperature on white or green teas.
