I absolutely tore through my first order of this tea and am now pacing myself through the second. The first time I prepared this, I prepared it all wrong and wasn’t too impressed (though I didn’t think it was bad), it was just much more like a green tea than a white tea.

The next go around I was more careful in my preparation. I poured very warm water just enough to cover the bag and let it sit about a half minute before adding the rest of the water, and I used water that wasn’t at boiling. I also shortened my steeping time from 4 minutes to 2 minutes. The cup came out absolutely perfect.

The aroma is amazing and the flavor was sweet, slightly creamy, and very pure. The aftertaste came out as the slightly earthy aftertaste of drinking a clean green tea, which was very pleasant. I really enjoy this tea in the summer (hot or cold) because of how delicate it is.

Bio

My name is Nikki!

I really like earl greys, green teas, and herbal teas.

I take my tea straight- no milk (barring something like a chai, in which I love warm almond milk stirred in) and absolutely no sugar.

I’m married and live in New England. I work at a book store and am going to school with the end goal of getting a Master’s in family and child mental health counseling and hopefully work beyond as a therapist. I’m a culinary school graduate who specialized in pastry and baking and love incorporating tea into cuisine. I have 2 cats, Spartacus and Jetter, and 1 beagle-mix named Newton!
