My exact words when I tasted this tea just now were, “Ooh… Oh… Oh yea…” (Which, for some reason were spoken in an almost Tina Fay playing Sarah Palin accent….)

This tea is goooood! I got my 4 teas plus 6 samples from The Persimmon Tree in the mail today and based on smell alone I HAD to try this one first!

I’ve been really weary of white teas in the past, but every time I try them, I don’t know why I don’t drink them more! I think it has to do with the myth that white teas are super low in caffeine… Actually, how do you tell how much caffeine a white tea has, anyway? (Because I hear it fluctuates?)

Ok anyway, back to this tea. If you like coconut, and you like creamy, just go out and buy this tea. Seriously, stop reading this review and just go buy it. Even if you’re a white tea sissy like me. It reminds me, in a way, of the Cantaloupe and Creme tea from Butiki that is my #1 favorite tea ever. I added a bit of vanilla soy milk to this because it’s like 98* outside and I don’t care what studies say about hot tea bringing down your body temperature; it’s too hot for hot hot tea right now! I do have another mug of just hot tea over here trying to cool down, though, let me sip that…. yea, no, still too hot, the only flavor I get is burnt tongue coming through. So, for now, coconut, creme and vanilla soy milk is mmm mmmm delicious!

White teas with caffeine – it’s popularly stated that black teas have more caffeine and whites have very little. But then other studies say that whites actually have the most due to the lack of processing. I find it honestly depends on the tea, and it probably comes down to location, harvest date, age, etc.
