My office has free tea along with free coffee, but since discovering good teas I haven’t availed myself of it. However after the Tavalon Dragonwell, I needed something to clear my palate, something to wipe the weird, numbing coating from my tongue. So I chose this since I generally like white teas and since the tangerine should function quite nicely as a mouth cleaner.

It steeps into a murky orange brew with the fragrance of tangerine candy. It tastes like tangerine as well. There’s not much of a white tea taste, but I purposely understeeped it to avoid any bitterness. It’s an ok tea and great for my purposes today but it is profoundly a one-note tea. There is no complexity here.

Do you have a blog? As a fellow Vegetarian I would LOVE to swap teas with you at some point if you are willing!

Carolyn

No current blog. But we could certainly swap teas and vegetarian recipes.

TeaEqualsBliss

Ooooo! I’m sooooooo interested. Where/How do you do that!?

Carolyn

Must think on this. It’s hard to be both diligently staying away from the Internet and communicating on it at the same time.

HAHAHA I know, it was a WEIRD one, right? Not my favorite Tavalon tea at all.

I’m a suddenly enthusiastic tea aficionado. I had no idea how varied and delicious teas could be. Also I’m a dairy-free vegetarian, so if you see me say “cream” or “milk” it means soy milk or soy cream.
