So I tried this mostly because I got it from my 52teas subscription and I believe that I should try everything once before I reject it out of hand, but white teas have never been my favourite thing, or even close to it. Imagine my surprise when I actually like this tea! The flavouring is subtle, fruity but not overwhelming and the white tea tastes like white tea but it doesn’t have that je ne sais quoi that I have never liked about it, somehow.

I think I steeped this correctly at 175 degrees for 2 minutes, but if anyone has suggestions on how to make this even better, please feel free to share, I haven’t steeped many white teas.

I’ve been eyeing that one for a long time. I may have to break down and get it now.

Do you want me to send you a cup’s worth in that trade we already set up?

Ohhh that would be nice if it isn’t too much trouble!

I’ll portion some out right now.
