    Comments about Teavana Silver Needle White Tea:

    I decided to look into tea to help with my stress. I researched the site and always came back to silver needle. On Dec 23rd I went into the Champaign, IL store and they got me set up. I brewed my first 2 cups on Christmas Eve since a family gathering can always be somewhat stressful. This tea was the perfect fit for what I was looking for and I loved the light clean taste with a bit of raw local honey added. It makes me feel good because I know I am doing something good for myself. I drink it throughout the day to remind myself to not let the stress get to me. I used 2 tsps for 16oz and followed the directions on the sticker to the letter. I have used the first 2 tsps. 3 times so far and there has been no change in the taste like you would expect from used leaves(I am going to try for 5 times with the same leaves). If you're not sure about tea or want something without fuss silver needle is what you are looking for. I will be repurchasing since I never plan to be without this wonderful tea.

    Comments about Teavana Silver Needle White Tea:

    I brew my teas in a French Press designed for Coffee. It is perfect if you give it about 4 minutes after you pour in the boiling water. The plunger separates the leaves from the liquid perfectly. This is my go to tea when I am feeling mentally frazzled. So relaxing and yummy.

      Comments about Teavana Silver Needle White Tea:

      I've only just become familiarized with loose tea, despite having drunken tea for so long, and this was my first purchase at Teavana. This tea is simply divine! It is very relaxing, and perfect without sugar, in my opinion. A friend, who doesn't like white tea, even agrees that it smells fantastic. My new go to! It may be a bit expensive, but since you can re-brew from the same serving, it is SO worth it!

        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.

            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!
