Wow!!!! Thanks Sil for sending this in a swap.

The tea is white tea leaves with small yellow flowers in it.

After brewing, I smelled the tea an exclaimed, to no one as I was alone in the house, “Wow! That smells good!”. I have been sitting and smelling it for the last 10 minutes. I didn’t even want to taste it becuase it smelled so good. It smells like juicy canteloupe. There is also a creamy scent. So far it definitely lives up to its name.

And it tastes just like canteloupe. Wow (again)! This is one good tea. I am going to cherish my sample of this one.

Thanks a bazillion Sil!

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
