This was a complete surprise. I received this one-off sample in a delivery of white tea from Canton Tea Co. and shrieked in delight upon receiving it. It lasted five steeps and took hotter temperatures well. Albeit still a white tea, it has some of the burly trappings of its blacker brethren.

omg this sounds heavenly!! yummmm… how much was shipping?? It doesn’t say on the site, and I’m not sure I can stop myself from ordering a sample!

Actually, shipping isn’t all that much for Canton when I ordered the white tea pack originally. Pretty reasonable.

gah, I just blew my tea budget for the month. Something to look forward to then! :)

At least you have a monthly tea budget.

Indigobloom

true. I really shouldn’t, it prevents me from saving up some extra cash!

Bio

I moonlight as a procrastinating writer and daylight as a trader of jack. I appreciate good tea, good beer, and food that is bad for me. Someday I’ll write the great American novel. And it’ll probably have something to do with tea or beer…or both. In the meantime, I subsist.
