drank Mango Papaya Bai Mu Dan by 52teas
499 tasting notes

I’m not feeling very poetic today, so this will be a short, straightforward review.

Hmm, I’m not sure I like papaya. No way to know until I tried it though! The Bai Mu Dan is quiet and lingers in the background. The mango is fairly quiet as well, overshadowed by the papaya. I’ve never wanted to add sweetener to a white tea before, but that changed with this cup. Then again, I don’t want to ruin a good thing. Thanks to Kittenna for the sample!

On a happy note, I’m in the 6th week of P90X and I can actually do real push-ups now!!! I couldn’t even begin to bend my arms before I started the program. But now I can go really low and still push myself back up!! And I can do more than one!!! EEEEEEHH!!!

Preparation

I hate papaya! I didn’t know until I picked up some one day on sale and ick… I’m glad you like the tea though :)

CHAroma

Yeah, it’s not terrible. Probably wouldn’t go buy one from the supermarket though. :)

Congrats on the push ups! I remember when I graduated to real push ups! Yoga really helps! I’ve since lost my arm muscles but gained some leg ones. Gotta work on a balance. ;)

CHAroma

I’d take leg muscles over arm muscles any day. Still, it is fun to see a measurable improvement. I’ve gotten a lot better at yoga too! One day I just woke up and could do the vinyasas without flaring my elbows out to the sides!

Yay!!! Congrats!!! Working out and seeing how your body becomes stronger is such a great joy! I love to see what cool things I can get my body to do!

Kittenna

Full pushups still elude me, sigh! One day…

Bio

Entering the sweet blissful world of tea aromas!

Having discovered this website at the end of July 2011, I’m so excited to share my tea adventures with all of you! I grew up with my grandmother serving Twining’s English Breakfast with cream and sugar.

But on a trip to Seattle in 2010, I stumbled into a Chinese teashop and tried my first oolong tea. I was forever changed! I embarked on a startling new love for green and white teas.

With a world of teas to discover, I was inspired to keep a tea journal to record my thoughts and new favorites. Let’s get brewing!


My ratings are completely subjective and 100% my opinion. All ratings are given in relation to each other (ie. teas are rated in the order of my enjoyment of them). Therefore, my ratings will constantly change as I try more teas.


I love swapping!!! If you see something in my cupboard you’d like to try, just send me a message. If you’d like to trade, anything on my shopping list will do or feel free to send something else entirely. I’m willing to try almost anything (although I’m not really a fan of honeybush, red rooibos, pu’erh, Lapsang Souchong, & banana-flavored teas).
