|Body||Fuller relative to other white teas, but still quite thin.|
|Flavors||Silver Needle White Tea can sometimes begin tasting only of water. But it quickly blooms in the mouth to show a light sugar sweetness, dulled with gentle vegetal flavors of steamed bok choy. Some versions also have faint “heat” notes, like toasted white bread.|
