Aww yisssss. Smells like Jolly Ranchers, only better. I was finishing portioning out the Order of Doom tonight, and this tea has called my name, even though I a) don’t like watermelon or, uhh, white tea (why did I get 0.5oz?!) and b) it’s 11:40pm.

I’m brewing it as directed, with a couple rock sugar crystals. Fingers crossed!

Uhh, yum. So glad I went for this tonight. It’s delicious! Tastes almost how it smells, but the white tea (which is honestly the best white tea I’ve ever had) really shines.

Conclusion: I’m really glad I got 0.5oz of this one. I’ll have to convince my BFF to have some, because it truly is nice. (I think she thought it smelled too much like candy. Doesn’t taste like candy.)

Note to self: If you leave your kettle open for 10 mins after it boils, it reaches 175F.

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 4 min, 30 sec

LMAO @ your last comment.

It’s important to know how long to leave the kettle for! I should have also noted that this was my full 1.7L kettle. :)

I loved this one too. Sooooo sweet and good. :)

But eek, drinking this at 11:40PM? Dx I wouldn’t be able to sleep all night. If I drink white teas at 7 or later, sleep doesn’t happen.

I’d had a nap, and wasn’t planning on sleeping soon anyways. :) Went to bed about 3:30, so that was ok. I’ve done 3 steeps so far, and although the watermelon is fading, the white tea just keeps giving. So good.

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
