Fruity white tea! At first it made me think of peaches, but for the second steeping it just reminded me of generic fruit, if there is such a thing. :) This seems like a fairly indestructible white tea, I used water that was too hot and steeped it too long and it still tasted great. The flavor lingered for a while after I drank it. Not really a tea to go with food, at least the turkey sandwich I had with it. The sweetness counteracts the turkeyness. For some reason this is a really crunchy tea; the leaves just flake apart.

Bio

I’m a 25 year old software developer working from home in (mostly) sunny Southern California. The best part of it all is being able to use my zojirushi for an endless supply of tea…mwahahaha….

I drink mostly pure green, oolong and black tea – but I have been known to fall in love with the occasional flavored tea (I’m looking at you, Lupica Melon Oolong).

My rating scale is rather arbitrary, since I find it kind of hard to compare teas on a numerical scale. The text part is much more useful…provided I can figure out how to describe the tea.

The rest of my time I spend in yoga, zumba, hanging out with my beagle and husband, cooking, reading, trying to learn to draw, and attempting to not play Skyrim. I’m never going to finish that one.

The only teas I stay away from are rooibos, since that gives me a weird headache thing. Other than that, I’ll try anything once.
