To use a TeaEqualsBliss phrase: these leaves are flew-fee! Flooo-feeee! (Oh yes, that is fun) :D I also have to add that I generally don’t care to see the leaves as they steep. But this one? It was amazing to stick them in the fridge the night before and then look in the morning. Very leafy leaves! It must be said: LEAF JUICE!!!!!

With this tea I’ve come to the realization that I really enjoy uber-subtle iced teas. I’ve had some aggressive iced teas lately and having one yesterday and now this one today I know that for me gentle is the way to go. This is fantastic iced. Just a hint of nectary sweetness – almost melon-ey. I’ve never really had a white tea like this before. NOM! TG

Bio

Proud all-around nerd, crafter, and brand-new Assistant Library Director. Give me an engrossing book and a wonderful cup of tea and I’m in heaven.

After being a barista for almost a decade it wasn’t until 2010 that I discovered loose leaf tea. Now I’m hooked.

How I use Steepster has been evolving since I joined. Yes, I use it for my personal “to buy or not to buy” info, but I’m enough of a goofball that I hope it can amuse others more often than not.

I’ve also started to become anal about my tea (times and temps). That’s surprised me. I finally realized that I should respect the leaves like I used to respect the beans. I also take my tea plain unless otherwise noted.

There’s really nothing remarkable or noteworthy of how I rate teas. I do take it a tiny further step to help clarify the muddled middle grounds for myself. TG is a definite repurchase. Anything below that is less and less likely.
