So good!

By Tea Mama

from Engadine, MI

Comments about Teavana Silver Needle White Tea:

This is an excellent tea! I can't tell you just how blown away I was upon first trying this a few weeks ago. It's delicate, silky taste is one that I knew meant that I had bought a truly fine grade of tea ( though now I wonder how the extravagantly expensive and rare Fujian version of silver needle compares). I wish it wasn't so expensive, or this would be my tea of choice throughout the day!

Steep and Drink the right way

Comments about Teavana Silver Needle White Tea:

The Only Way To Drink Silver Needle Tea

Preparation:
The proper way to drink Silver Needle Tea is to use 6-8 needles per 4 oz cup of very hot water (steam coming off the top) directly into a bone china cup, and not use a filter, or infusor or gadget... just let the leaves naturally swim and float in the hot water. Once half of the leaves have settled to the bottom.

Begin Drinking:
Simply blow across the top of the water to magically move the floating needles to the other side and sip slowly from the cleared area. This is how Chinese teenagers are taught by the parents to drink Silver Needle Tea for the last 5000+ years.

Disclaimer: I have visited 3 China provinces and tasted almost all of the Royal Provincial Teas and taught by locals...by the way 6 is a magical number to the Chinese and means luck, happiness and prosperity. You can use 6 needles exact to the 4 oz bone china cup, but I sometimes like 8.

10/10 Jasmine Silver

By Lauren

from Columbus, IN

Comments about Teavana Silver Needle White Tea:

I was hesitant to try this tea because it's more expensive, but it is definitely worth every penny. It's a lighter tea so you're actually getting more for your money, and it can be steeped multiple times as well!
The full-bodies flavor is sweet and has the perfect amount of depth. I will definitely be purchasing again!

I love this tea. It has a light naturally sweet flavor and I drink it everyday. I love how high white teas are in antioxidants as well. It's delicious and good for you. How can you beat that?

Just tried for the first time and it is love at first taste. Perfect for after work or evening enjoyment, I steep according to directions and may try it a little stronger.

My all time favorite

By Willie

from Des Moines, IA

Comments about Teavana Silver Needle White Tea:

This tea is perfect. The epitome of what white tea should be. I can steep this 5 times (I haven't tried more than 5 but probably could) and the flavor is always great. I could drink this every day of the year if it wasn't so pricy.

Great Mild Flavor

By Rin Rin

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Teavana Silver Needle White Tea:

The perfect all-day-long cup. Mild on the caffeine, this white tea is perfect at night, and can also be enjoyed throughout the day. The flavor is subtle, and I recommend letting it steep a bit longer for a stronger, fuller taste. And I don't see any problem using the leaves again to make a second cup. If you're into the health benefits of white tea, this is an excellent choice!

Personal Favorite

By Jessica

from Dallas, Tx

Comments about Teavana Silver Needle White Tea:

This has been a favorite since I first discovered Teavana back in 2007. I enjoy mixing it with jasmine pearls. It's great to have morning, noon, or night. Being severely anemic it has a distinct irony taste that I often crave.

Excellent Taste

By Dr. T

from New Jersey

Comments about Teavana Silver Needle White Tea:

Very light pleasant taste without sweeter. Make sure the water is not boiling hot or it will cause the leaves to over process loosing its light flavor. Also you can get about 3 cups out of 2 teaspoons. So steep about 4 minutes and then save the leaves and make two more cups. This tea is a gem!
