Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
Soft herbaceous aroma that reminds of cooked grains with accents of sweet berries and an undertone of caramel and cocoa. Soft, lively, malty sweet infusion. Open, refreshing and cleansing sensations. Silky tactility. Mildly sweet aftertaste. This matured batch from 2016 carries extra sweet chocolate accents in the aroma.
Unlike green tea, a white tea such as a genuine Silver Needle is much better brought out with water in higher temperature: 90°C. The taste profile also withstands repeated infusion much better.
