And just when I’ve been warming up to this tea i seemed to have lost it somewhere in my apartment. How does one lose a tea? Well if you saw my stash you might understand but this was in a pretty big envelope. I hope I find it again.

I have to be really in the mood for white teas in order to appreciate them. Lately I’ve been intrigued by the vegetal and slightly smoky essence of this one. There is a tiny hit of corn flavor somewhere in the background. I figure there is some perfect way to steep this that will turn it magical but I haven’t discovered how yet. Or maybe not.

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
