Somewhat disappointed

I hate teavana. The spazzes they hire in the store are pushy like car salesmen, the atmosphere is alienating, and all of their products are ridiculously overpriced. I've gone to them occasionally for years only because I thought there was no other reliable way to get decent loose leaf tea. Recently I saw a tin of PTT co's white silver needle online for a measly 10 bucks, so I bought it figuring I'd save myself the trouble of going to teavana.

I'm happy with the flavor so far, though it is slightly more delicate than teavana's equivalent, and I find myself using more and more spoonfuls per cup to be satisfied. My biggest gripe is that the leaves themselves seem to be dry. Now I'm no expert on tea; I do know that tea leaves are dried, but these were so dry they were like twigs. They seemed stale, and had little-to-no aroma. I guess this is why the flavor was lacking. Clearly a quality concern, but I bought it from amazon, so I assumed it had just been in storage for too long.

Overall, This stuff is a MUCH better deal than anything teavana has to offer going by the price alone. I will buy again, but if I get another tin of twigs, I'll have to find yet another way to get my delicious white tea.

Quality

This is a sweet and light tea. Definitely one of the better silver needles I have tried. I love the aroma on this tea. Recommended.

Wonderful first try

I was looking to get into really good variations of tea, so I chose a sample of this to give white tea a try. I was surprised how subtle, yet sweet and flavorful it was, with an almost fruity taste to it. I could drink this all day!

Sarah
Amazing!

I could drink this tea all day! It smells wonderful - sweet, fresh, and floral. Mmmm... Surprisingly, it brews up even more wonderful than it smells. There's no need to add anything to this tea. I've found that this is a great "palate cleansing" tea.

Ann

Charlene
Complex flavors

As a white tea this silver needle is very complex. It's savory, woodsy, and yet a little sweet. I really enjoy sipping this throughout the day.

Amanda Jenkins
An exceptional tea

This is a very calming, mellow tea. I love to have it in the evening to relax and wind down after a long day. I think 3 minutes is a good steep time.

Laura
Divine!

If you like milder teas, you have to try this one! You can just taste the quality of the tea leaves. It's quite special.
