Hmm where are the white silver needles? Anyways I have brewed a cup as is a few days ago, and although the tea wasn’t bad; it was fruity, caramelly-honey, coconutty mix of flavours, I wanted more white tea! So today I added a bit of silver needles white tea I happened to have on hand from a tiny Chinese tea shop here in Vancouver called Aroma tea house. This tea is a good fruity sweet tea probably because of the mulberries. I liked the addition of more tea leaves better than when I had it straight. Although I like the tea…due to cost (for how much I like it), I will probably not add this to my regular stash of teas.

I am pretty new to trying different types of loose leaf teas. Growing up we only ever had Chinese restaurant tea or bagged orange pekoe. Later on I tried genmai cha at the Japanese restaurants and added that permanently to my tea cupboard.

So far, I like oolongs and black. Most often I drink straight teas but I do like some flavoured ones as long as they don’t taste fakey or chemically. I would like to try more greens, whites and more Rooibos’ as well as anything that doesn’t have caffeine in it to add to my cupboard.

An attempt at a rating system:
90-100 worthy of being permanently stocked in my cupboard
80-89 great tea would love to have in my tea cupboard but probably in smaller quantities
70-79 very nice tea but I don’t necessarily have to have it
60-69 will drink it but not choose to stock it
50-59 prefer not to drink it unless it is all I have
<50 total miss for my tastes
