Emma’s Teaview Snapshot
Thumbs up!" The smell of the tea leaves dry was very melony and sweet, steeped the scents deepened to smell exactly like a bail of fresh hay. It was the same of the tea liquor in my mug. "

cantonsilverneedleI love silver needle teas, they're so beautiful. This one is no exception. I pulled the beautiful little silver leaves from the bag with my fingers and watched them open and bob in my infuser. The smell of the tea leaves dry was very melony and sweet, steeped the scents deepened to smell exactly like a bail of fresh hay. It was the same of the tea liquor in my mug.

The color of the steeped tea is a very light straw. It's flavor is much more subtle than its smell. I taste melon and petals. This white tea is more delicate than any white tea I've tasted before, all I can think of is what a rain spattered bail of hay would taste like. There are subtle notes of white flower petals as well. Per the notes on my tasting sample, the tea is exceptionally viscous and creamy on the palate, I really do enjoy this silver needle, it's extraordinary in quality and flavor. This is my first sampling from the Canton Tea Co and I am impressed, I'll be excited to sample other offerings.

The Canton Tea Co. is based in Bristol in England and specializes in teas from Taiwan and China. This one is particular comes from Fuding, Fujan Province in China, these silver needles are high grade, a 5/5 rating on the web site and were harvested in April of 2013. Some teas, one cannot easily tell the freshness, but with this one in particular it's evident from the moment you see the needles to the first sip of tea. There are also teas that need sweetening, or milk to really bring out their flavor, this shouldn't be touched and is a true enjoyment!
