Looking at the leaves and the color of the liquor, my first thought was that this looks more like a white tea than a green tea. (And the name certainly helped inspire that thought too). The flavor is stronger than a typical white though, so, ok, I believe you, it’s a green tea.

The description suggests a strong astringency, but I’m not getting that. I do get some astringency, perhaps it’s how I steep it? I don’t know. This is a very pleasantly sweet tea, with a flavor reminiscent to honey. Lovely floral notes in the background. As I continue to sip, the astringency builds, it is sort of a tangy/tingly kind of astringency that sort of tickles the tongue.

A lovely green.

An excellent green tea.

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!
