Silver Needle

This is just a quick post because I have been trying to post at least twice a month and I only posted once this month! I at least still have several hours left to this month.

Silver Needle is a very pretty tea, I like the silvery look the dry leaves have. My little sister calls it green banana tea! It does not taste like green bananas though, only looks like them.
The taste is similar to the smell of dry autumn leaves,  though a little more subtle. It is also fruityish (I think I may have made that word up!) It has a nutty-toasty flavor as well, somewhat like toasted barley or oat. It is a very good tea is you are not wanting something too strong, yet something that still has plenty of flavor to it. Ever since I first tasted it, I thought it tasted similar to a lightly oxidized oolong. I know that that probably sounds funny, since white teas are oxidized very little, and oolongs are usually oxidized more than green teas are. I think the best word to describe the smell is the word autumn, though autumn may smell different to every person. So that is just about "it" for this post!
