Silver Needle: Vital Tea Leaf

4.5 Overall Score
Taste: 4/10
Aroma: 5/10

Beautiful leaves...

Overpriced compared to other better tasting white teas.

Silver Needle: White Tea
Vital Tea Leaf
Steep: 20-40 sec @ 180
$35.00 for 4 oz.

A nutty and smooth tea, there is a spicy strong vegetal undertone that makes this tea less pleasant than other white teas I have enjoyed.
It’s a delicate tea with the steep, the “tangy” or spicy taste gets stronger the longer it sets.
This is not a tea I would recommend to folks just getting into white teas.

From the Vital Tea Leaf:

“High quality white tea high in antioxidant and low in caffeine. Tangy, grassy, and nutty in flavor. Very popular white tea in China growth from AnHui Yellow Mountain Region.”
