Wow! This is amazing!

This is a white tea? That is what surprises me most about this tea. When you think “white tea” … what comes to mind? Something pale and delicate? This tea will shatter those thoughts and change how you think about white tea. It has an amazing complexity to it, sweet, fruity, hints of air and vegetation… but that is not what is so different about it. In the foreground, ahead of this delicate complexity is a BOLD floral note that really lives up to its name “White Orchid” There is no need to seek out this floral tone … it is there, evident, present, and unmistakeable.

And I think that is what sets this white tea apart from most white teas. It really is a forward tea – it doesn’t approach the palate quietly, it offers its sharp orchid note right up front. Once the palate moves a bit beyond that, the flavors become less intense, more delicate, but still very flavorful. Delightful fruit notes that morph between that of a soft white grape and hints of peach, and even a honey-esque note that evoked thoughts of honey crisp apples. These background notes are crisp and light and Darjeeling-esque.

Truly a remarkable white tea.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

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.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
