I’m not experienced at all with unflavored white teas. Hot, this is still a bit weak for me. I can tell it has a nice flavor, but I’m used to black teas. I need to drink more white teas and get a taste for them. However, I made this iced and I really enjoy it!

i think i’m in the same boat… aside from verdant’s yunnan white jasmine which is very delicately robust (sortof an oxymoron there, lol).

Drinking this iced today! It has a nice, sweet fruity flavor. A very good iced tea! And of course, the color. Everyone’s commented on it, and its hard not to say something! It seems normal at first, then BAM. Your cup is full of this crazy murky green colored liquid. Luckily, it tastes nothing like it looks.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

Had this yesterday for breakfast. Very nice flavor, smooth, and not astringent. There wasn’t anything mind blowing about this, but it’s a good tea!

Stopped by the Domain location of the Steeping Room while out to lunch with my boyfriend. It was really busy, like always. I just grabbed an iced cup to go. I was torn between Peach Black and Coconut Green, and the boyfriend, not a fan of coconut, told me to go with the peach. It didn’t say “Georgetown Peach”, but I’m guessing it was the same. I liked it but not as much as I remember liking it before. It tasted almost generically fruity, not as distinctively peachy.

Preparation
Iced

drank Peach Black by Stash Tea Company

I’ve had this tea bad for quite a while, I forgot about it! I was in a hurry yesterday morning to get to class, but I needed caffeine! I grabbed into my teabag can, hoping to grab a black tea and I ended up with this!

It smells very good, a bit like the gummy peach rings. And the taste is the same! Very sweet and smooth. A very good tea, especially for being in a tea bag AND old! This is one I could see getting again

drank Coconut Assam by Zhi Tea

This was the tea that I tried iced in the store last weekend. I really enjoyed it then! I drank it warm yesterday, then cold brewed today. I went for three minutes steep with the hot cup, which made it too bitter, and hid the coconut flavor. However, I think cold brew is my favorite method so far. It brings out much more of the sweetness while still having the tea taste.

I really enjoy this blueberry tea! It’s a good equal mix of white tea flavor and blueberry. The blueberry is very sweet and smooth, not tart at all. I could see myself buying more of this one.

drank Fredericksburg Peach by Zhi Tea

One of the teas I got from my trip to Zhi Tea in Austin. I didn’t see steeping instructions on the bag, but I could have just missed them. I went with three minutes to start with.

This tea smells really good in the bag. It smells a lot like the gummy peach rings. Some people may not like that, but I had those all the time as a kid! After three minutes of steeping however, I wasn’t getting that flavor. I wasn’t getting any peach flavor, and the tea was a bit bitter. Looks like three minutes was too long! I ended up falling asleep, and the cup cooled off. I took a sip, and tasted chocolate! Weird. I’ll definitely try this one again

drank Matcha by Zhi Tea

I bought my first matcha set yesterday at Zhi Tea, and this matcha to go along with it. I attempted to make up some matcha last night and it went horribly! I read up a bit more on techniques, and made some again today. It went much better! No giant clumps, and I even got it frothy and pretty! Much less bitter than last night. I mixed it with milk, and it was very creamy and sweet. There was a bit of vegetal taste, the matcha reminding you that it really was there. I can’t really say how this compares, but I feel that this is as good a place as any for the beginner!

This smells like a coconut macaroon! Yum! I mixed this in with some almond cashew cream. It really helped to bring out the flavors! The chocolate got a but masked, but the almond and coconut were in the front

Bio

I’m a premed student at a university near Austin. I’ve recently started getting very much into tea, but I’m still learning. I’ve lived in Hawaii, Mississippi, Colorado, Maryland, and California, and each place has it’s own charm, but Colorado was definitely my favorite place. I also knit quite a bit and sell things on my etsy when I’m not busy with school.
