thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for including this in our trade! First, I must say the picture above that goes with this tea is so clear and well done. You ca see all the fuzziness to the white tea leaves. I actually don’t even like the fuzziness to white tea but that picture is impressive. I was worried about this one when I saw the name. White tea. Cucumber. Uh oh. I don’t love either of them. But luckily the flavor is mild… a mild dill pickle! But also is genuinely cucumber. It definitely tastes like cucumber. I usually associate white teas with drying my mouth, but this one didn’t! So it wins there anyway. I’m actually glad this one isn’t worse! But I don’t think any cucumber white tea could impress me too much. Not a bad blend but am I crazy to think it would have been better with a stronger flavor? More dill pickle?

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! I was bored one day and found out that most of them have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
40-65 – Okay
1-40 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
