White Down Silver Needle is a perfect tea for summer. Lighter than other teas, Silver Needle is just right for sipping on warm days and also makes a wonderful, light bodied but full flavored, iced-tea. Fresh citrus fruits, pineapple, herbs such as mint and basil, and even berries can be used to garnish Silver Needle iced-tea.
