drank Honeydew by Teas Etc
702 tasting notes

Steep Information:
Amount: 3 tsp
Additives: none
Water: 2 zarafina cups filtered water
Tool: Zarafina white-loose-medium
Served: Hot

Tasting Notes:
Dry Leaf Smell: like honeydew milk boba tea
Steeped Tea Smell: vegetal, like honeydew milk boba tea, flowery
Flavor: slightly bitter, astringent but melon
Body: Medium
Aftertaste: bitter
Liquor: translucent light orange

I should try a mild steep and / or less leaf next time.

The tea came in a black plastic sealed bag inside the tin. When I dumped it into the tin I noticed a pollen like fluffy residue in the bag. I wonder if this is a white tea attribute?

Post-Steep Additives: none, but was thinking about some sugar

Resteep: just as strong as the first steep

My Teas Etc. golden monkey had a lot of pollen yellow residue too (like yellow dust).

it’s weird to have fluffy dusty tea – i wonder if the fluff has flavor?

Pamela Dean

Maybe the fluff is leaf-hairs. White tea (or tea with lots of young, hairy buds) has more of them than almost any other kind. You can see them in the liquid, too, because they escape the infuser.

@Dax I think you are right, it’s sooooo fluffy

Bio

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
