Since first trying this Silver Needle tea three months ago, I have gone from an occasional tea drinker to a tea lover. I find the flavour subtle yet intricate, and the aroma when I open each packet is wonderful.rnrnAn even greater testament is that many friends and family have tried and loved it, without exception. Valley Green Tea ought to be very proud of this fine tea.

Delicately awesome! I have tried a couple of other brands of silver needles and this taste I like the best! Everytime the sweet liquid leaves my mouth I start missing it again, so I just gotta keep drinking, such a pleasure to do so! Plus, you can tell they really take the freshness of their tea seriously by the way they packaged the tea. Despite the hiccup in the shipping, I'm one happy customer!

I bought this kind of tea from another company thinking it would be just as good but I was so wrong. I don't know how to describe it but the white tea you supply was just much better! So delicate and clean tasting, incomparable with the other tea.
