In my quest to gain some control over my tea stash, I had forgotten that I hadn’t yet tried this tea from my Perfect Pairs box from Steepster Select!

This is a surprising tea. Before even opening the pouch, the name suggests to me a white tea rather than a green. And after opening the pouch, I see beautiful leaves that look like a very high quality Bai Mu Dan, complete with silvery fuzz on the leaves. So, I expected this to be more white tea tasting but it definitely has a green tea quality to it. This is not as delicate as a typical Bai Mu Dan, but it is more delicate than say … a Pi Lo Chun.

It is sweet and has a lovely fruit-like quality to it: peachy tones. Like a Bai Mu Dan, it doesn’t have a strong grassy overtone, but it doesn’t have that hay-like character that I sometimes detect with a Bai Mu Dan.

A LOVELY green tea. Really glad I got to try this one.

Sounds lovely. It makes me want to break out my Pi Lo Chun from Teavivre to try….but not before bedtime.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
