At long last I am drinking this again, but this time I have a way to combat the bitterness…

I’ve been using steep.it a lot lately (if you don’t use it, you really should!) and I especially like that for white teas it actually times for 30sec. I kid you not. A timer for half a minute! Who knew! So freakin’ handy because if you’re anything like me-and there’s a small toddler depending on you to keep them alive—then you lose track of time. A lot. This website makes sure you’re steeping your tea not only for the right amount of time, but the right temperature too!

Anyways, long story short: I steeped the Whisky White according to their 30sec @ 80(ish)°C recommendation and HOLY MOSES this is a completely different tea! Not bitter or strange at all, just creamy-soda-white-tea heaven. Still no whisky taste, but then again I’m no expert on what whisky tastes like so, meh!

PLUS, I got 2 more steeps outta the leaves slightly raising the temp and time for each steep.

What a cool name for a tea…….I’m glad you like it. :))

It does have a pretty neat name, plus it tastes good too.

I know, isn’t it a completely different tea with the lower steep time? DT really missed the marked with their steeping times on the whites.

It really makes me wonder how a tea company like David’s (and others) come up with their steep times. Sometimes they really do miss the mark.

Also, yay for steep.it, a life saver!

Faith

Kay & Daisy: Totally! You’d think they would be experts at steeping whites, since they seem to have so many. And all this time I’ve been following their recommendations which proved to be wrong.

Hi there! I am a big fan of tea in it’s many forms: white, green, black, red, herbal, etc. Since the removal of my gallbladder I am finding I sway more towards straight teas, such as black or oolong, and dessert-like teas.

I hope you find my reviews helpful…
