Tea #2 from Another Traveling Tea Box

I was surprised by how good the dry leaf looked. There were a mixture of large, broad leaves and long needles. The smell was pleasant, though not identifiable. After steeping, the tea smelled and tasted like a mild cucumber water. The tea base was quite smooth, but not that flavorful. The second steep was completely flavorless.

I would love to sample more cucumber white teas, but I don’t feel the need to try this one again.

I’m a Floridian living in Kansas and currently pursuing a physics Ph.D. by day (…and by night, who am I kidding?) with an immense love for all things tea.

Rating Scheme:

<50 = Undrinkable.
50-59 = Drinkable, but not my cuppa.
60-69 = Decent, but nothing to write home about.
70-79 = Good tea that I drink occasionally. Probably will not restock when it runs out.
80-89 = Very tasty. May or may not restock when it runs out.
90-100 = Delicious. A staple in my collection.
