White Down Silver Needle - Pam's Tea Review

I love this very delicate and fruity taste white tea. Thanks a lot to *Grand Tea* <https://www.grandtea.com/>  for allowing me to taste this great white tea because as you know due  to the rarity of very good white teas, it is a fairly an expensive tea.  The White Down Needle-Zheng He, is approximately 22 euros for 100 grams  of tea. Even if it is a bit expensive, this white tea is worth its price  because it’s just delicious !"
