Sampler 7/31
This tea is has a very delicate taste. As a hot tea I really didn’t get any taste of ginger which was disappointing cause i love ginger. I don’t know if thats because I drink ginger brew all the time (if you don’t know what ginger brew is it’s super gingery soda). As the tea cools down the ginger becomes more apparent. I think this would be really good iced as an alternative to water, as i’m not a fan of straight water.

I don’t like straight water either… and as much as I don’t like tisanes w/o true tea added, refigerated ginger water (I call it this cuz it has no liquor lol) is by FAR the best thirst quencher I’ve found. Even more so w/ a bit of lemon juice.

I have yet to find a white tea that tasted like anything but “lightly tinted” water.

@gmathis, http://www.52teas.com/2010/09/20/apple-vanilla-white-chai/ It’s actually too dark for me for a white… I think it’s due to the shou mei in the blend. So you may want to find an unflavored shou mei if you like the AV chai. Also, definitely make sure you’re using enough leaf. I like 3g/8oz cuppa. The leaves of the Apple Vanilla White Chai are quite small but most white tea leaves are so lengthy and light that it takes over a TB of tea leaf to make up 3g. This is also why I purchased a tea scale… measuring (white specifically) tea by the teaspoon is such a pain in the butt.

Hello,
I’m a college graduate, who got into tea during late night studies (late nights without liking coffee otherwise sucks). I’m currently taking a year off in Montana as an Americorps, and hoping to go to medical school (lots more late tea nights for me).
Any tips or suggestions to try are greatly appreciated.
