Angel's Comment:

The tea liquid is refreshing and sweet, the tea buds are plump. This 200g small cake is suitable for friends who like Yunnan white tea.

This Silver Needle Cake Tea is made from the whole tea buds of Yunnan large-leaf species, which are naturally withered and then pressed into cakes. The whole cake looks gorgeous for the dense white pekoe are covered inside and outside of the cake, and the tea buds are fat and distinct. Gently shake the dry tea in a warm Gaiwan, and you can smell the unique fragrance and floral fragrance of Yunnan white tea; the taste is refreshing, sweet and soft, with a long-lasting honey sweet aroma at the bottom of the fair cup. If you prefer a mild taste and a tea that is flowery and sweet, this entry-level white tea is excellent for daily consumption.
